A Sheepshead Bay woman has been indicted for forgery, among other charges, for trying to pass off a phony court order which absolved her of close to $77,000 in debt.

According to Acting District Attorney Eric Gonzalez, 35-year-old Natalya Rosenstock, while a litigant in a divorce proceeding before the Brooklyn Supreme Court, allegedly created a false document seemingly signed by Justice Rachel Adams ordering the absolution of all of her debt accrued during both her marriage and her divorce.

Furthermore, the forged court order required crediting agencies to clear Rosenstock’s record of any negative reporting between September, 2009 and June, 2016. The defendant is said to have faxed the order to three credit reporting agencies.

According to the investigation, the faux paperwork was convincing enough that one of the crediting agencies did clear much of Rosenstock’s debt from its records.

According to Gonzalez, the alleged fraud was discovered when one of the other crediting agencies contacted one of Rosenstock’s lenders, who then contacted the Brooklyn Supreme Court, questioning the document’s validity.

“This defendant allegedly perpetrated a blatant fraud to get out of paying her debts,” said Gonzalez. “Perhaps even worse, in doing so, she exploited the trust in our courts and violated the integrity of the judicial system. We intend to hold her fully accountable for her shameful acts.”

Rosenstock was arraigned on Tuesday, August 15 on three counts of second-degree forgery, three counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and three counts of second-degree falsifying business records. She will return to court on October 4, at which time she faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.
