Brooklyn Man Gets 13 To 41 Years For Impersonating Dead Mom To Recover Home Lost In Foreclosure & Pocket Her Social Security Benefits

In Brooklyn, New York, The Village Voice reports:

  • A Brooklyn man who dressed up as his dead mother to commit real estate and social security fraud was in court this afternoon where he was sentenced to some rather lengthy prison time after getting found guilty last month of multiple dressing-as-your-dead-mother-to-scam-people-related crimes.

  • [Thomas] Parkin, 51, was sentenced to a total of 13 2/3 to 41 years in prison for a scam in which he attempted to convince the government that his mother was alive so he could regain ownership of her home, which was sold at auction after Parkin was unable to pay the mortgage.
