Senator Smith Hosts Predatory Lending Panel
State Senator Malcolm Smith, left, hosted a meeting on predatory lending, last week. Lois Booker Williams from the State Attorney General’s office, second from left, shared cautionary advice with the nearly two-dozen residents who attended. Brian Mich, right, from the Queens District Attorney’s Economic Crimes Bureau, said those who feel they have been victimized should contact the DA at 718-286-6630. "The police department doesn’t have the type of resources to investigate these kinds of crimes," Mich said.
