HEMPSTEAD - A Farmingdale woman who said she was an attorney helping homeowners modify their mortgages was arrested on several fraud charges.

Meredith Dulberg, 36, surrendered to police today.

Dulberg worked for the Templeton Group, a company that claimed it would help homeowners modify their mortgages. Detectives say the company would collect thousands of dollars in fees upfront from struggling homeowners, who then never got their mortgages modified.

As part of their investigation, detectives say Dulberg filed false documents with the court, and was never a registered attorney nor passed the New York State Bar Exam.

Investigators allege Dulberg and the Templeton Group stole more than $10 million from homeowners across Long Island and the U.S.

The Templeton Group closed its doors last year. Authorities say their investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected.
