Mohd R. Amin, a Bangladeshi immigrant, is suing a local company he claims has stolen his East New York property using fake deeds while he was out of the country, reports Commercial Observer.
Amin originally purchased 551 Liberty Avenue in 2007 and shortly after fell behind on his mortgage payments after the tenants stopped paying rent, his lawyers claim. He fell seriously ill later that year after returning to his home country, and was unable to renew his United States permanent resident card. The card expired in 2009, and Amin remained in Bangladesh until 2018.
During this time, Paul Fishbein, working under 2166 Dean LLC, purchased the property for just $1,000. On the original deed for this transfer, which was filed in 2013, Amin’s first and last names are reversed. Attorneys representing Amin claim that he never agreed to transfer the property to Fishbein, and that his signature has been forged on the documents.
A separate suit has also been filed claiming that Fishbein submitted similarly fraudulent deeds transferring Amin’s second property in Cypress Hills into his possession.
