Nikita Natvarlal Patel, 25, and Akash Satish Patel, 32, were arrested on September 4 after police launched an investigation into a victim’s complaint. Police said the pair were not related, although they have the same last name and they both reside at the same address in Iselin, NJ.

Leonia Police chief Thomas P. Rowe said the alleged fraudsters were residents of India and that Nikita’s visa had expired.

Following their arrest, police have seized around $150,000 from their bank accounts.

The Patels are being held on $150,000 bail at the Bergen County Jail and charged with conspiracy to commit theft by deception.
