BROOKLYN - The state's attorney general has ordered two Brooklyn stores be shut down after they allegedly ripped off immigrants from Haiti.
According to the attorney general's office, Pro Max and Rincher's Bookstore, both located on Rogers Avenue in Flatbush, took advantage of immigrants after the earthquake in Haiti last year.
Officials say the companies charged for legal services even though they did not have a lawyer on staff. They say the stores also charged to fill out paperwork that immigrants shouldn't have to pay for.
The office says the stores had about 30 victims between them. They have been given 45 days to close and will have to pay more than $25,000 in fines.
