BURLINGTON, N.J. — Officials say a New Jersey man has been indicted on charges of operating a fraudulent law practice for over a decade.
U.S. Attorney Zane Memeger announced Thursday that 62-year-old Leaford Cameron has been charged with mail fraud, wire fraud and making false statements.
Prosecutors say Cameron defrauded at least 74 people from several states and multiple foreign countries while running the bogus firm out of his Burlington home.
Authorities say Cameron mostly represented clients in immigration court while operating the phony “Cameron & Associates” or “Cameron, Hamilton & Associates” from 2003 until March 2015.
Cameron is accused of using four Pennsylvania attorney identification numbers belonging to licensed lawyers.
It’s not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the indictment.
