NYC Cops Pinch Flipper For Pocketing $200K Selling Same Home Twice Before Deal Documents Were Recorded

In Staten Island, New York, the New York Post reports:

  • A scam artist twice sold the same property in Woodrow, and profited $200,000 from the sales before the transactions were recorded by the County Clerk’s Office, authorities said.

  • Dariusz Mruczynski, 44, first sold the home at 263 Edgegrove Ave. on Dec. 16 before flipping it on Dec. 30, according to court records. He pulled off the scheme by fraudulently obtaining two mortgages, cops said. He failed to pay $29,527 in taxes for 2008 and 2009, records show. He was busted Tuesday for grand larceny and tax fraud, said a spokesman for DA Dan Donovan.
