Westbury, NY - July 22nd, 2014 - The Crimes Against Property Squad reports the details of an arrest for Offering a False Instrument that occurred in Westbury.
 
According to detectives, the defendant Meredith Dulberg, 36, of Conklin Street, Farmingdale, appeared in Nassau County Small Claims Court as an attorney at-law representing the Tempelton Group - 1025 Old Country Road, Westbury and filed with the courts forms containing false information. The defendant was never registered or admitted to the New York State Bar. The defendant surrendered to detectives on July 22, 2014.
 
The Tempelton Group had fraudulently led hundreds of victims throughout the United States to believe that they had a lawyer inside their firm and thereby were allowed to collect upfront fees for loan modifications. Victims were people who needed help with their mortgages because their homes were worth less than the outstanding balance or because interest rates and monthly payments were unaffordable.
 
This investigation is ongoing.
 
Defendant Dulberg is being charged with 2 counts of Offering a False Instrument and Practicing/Appearing as an Attorney. She will be arraigned on July 22, 2014 at First District Court, Hempstead.
