“Seinfeld” is back … linked to a guy who’s been indicted for passing himself off as an architect, and the investigation is called “Operation Vandelay Industries.” Seriously.
New York’s Attorney General announced a 3-charge indictment Thursday against a guy auspiciously named Paul Newman — yes, Newman — for allegedly defrauding construction companies, business owners and others by pretending to be a licensed and registered architect.
The AG says Newman drafted bogus designs for over 100 properties in 3 NY counties since 2010, making tens of thousands in the process. He was also the only employee at his company.
George Costanza would be proud.
