Congers man arrested in green card scamPosted: Updated:
A Congers man is accused of impersonating a federal agent and scamming undocumented immigrants.
Marko Nikac was arrested at his home in Congers following a two-month investigation.
Authorities say he promised undocumented immigrants in Mount Kisco green cards in exchange for cash. They say when the victims didn't receive the green card, they contacted Nikac and he threatened to have them deported.
The scam was uncovered when one of the victims told a retired police officer about how he and two of his friends paid Nikac $9,000. That led to the two-month undercover investigation by Westchester County police.
Nikac was charged with felony criminal impersonation, grand larceny and misdemeanor scheme to defraud.
