New York State's Attorney General announced today that a man named Newman was busted for committing architecture fraud in an investigation called Operation Vandelay Industries, a 100% true sentence you just read today on April 20, 2017.

The townhouses at the Lofts at Saratoga Blvd in Malta are two stories and start at $1,420 per month.

Newman was charged with 31 crimes including a host of felonies in Albany, Rensselaer and Saratoga County courts.

He then allegedly submitted them to various towns and cities, falsely certifying on the documents that he was a registered and licensed architect and affixing a forged New York State Registered Architect Stamp or Professional Engineer Stamp.

Between 2012 and 2014, Newman was hired as the architect for the development of a multi-story senior living community, receiving in excess of $40,000.

Schneiderman's team trolled the defendant, calling their investigation "Operation Vandelay Industries" - an homage to "Seinfeld" character George Costanza and his phony business. In that time, Newman's Cohesion Studios, Inc. of which he was the president and sole employee, was contracted for 6 architectural jobs around the Capital Region, including townhouses, senior living communities and a multifamily apartment building.

He "jeopardized the safety of those who resided in and frequented the buildings he was contracted to work on", Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement Thursday. "Deceptive actions like these erode public trust", Schneiderman said.

He's a real life George Costanza - and his name is Paul Newman! He'd been advertising his services on social media accounts, but soon after the complaint was filed, all references to "architecture" in his ads were replaced with "design", prosecutors said.

Newman, 49, of Troy, New York, is facing a 58-count indictment, including charges of third-degree grand larceny, second-degree forgery and scheme to defraud.
