Queens family indicted in $1.75 million fraud scheme

A Queens County grand jury in New York indicted a couple and their daughter for allegedly stealing more than $1.75 million through real estate and immigration fraud, according to a release by the Queens district attorney earlier this month.

Over a period of six years, Shane Ramsundar, 50, his wife, Gomatee Ramsundar, 46, and their daughter, Shantal Ramsundar, 23, allegedly portrayed Shane as a federal agent and allegedly promised 19 members of the borough’s West Indian community that he could help them buy cheap governmentally seized properties in Florida and Queens and/or help them achieve legal status in the United States.
