Mujumder has taken thousands of dollars in promise of a green card in marriage, political asylum, job sponsorship, etc. But no receipt was given to them. When asked for a receipt, Mujumdar blatantly said, “Who asks for receipts for bribery?”

Often times many people in danger of legal matters come to my office.
Many cry and talk about their plight. I was surprised to find that a so-called Bangladeshi community “leader” was at the root of several incidents. He is none other than Mohammed N. Mujumder, a well-known figure in the Bangladeshi community, who always love to identify himself as Master of Law.
I have met a man named Mohammed N. Mujumdar three to four times. Our dialogues lasted about four to five minutes. I am not an attorney and even in my observations, no ability to discuss law was noted in Mohammed N. Mujumdar. Although I myself am not very good at English, Mujumdar’s linguistic weaknesses, lack of information and his misinterpretation of the English language are eye-catching. I looked at the man named Mujumdar and was surprised to think that Bangladeshi people go to a man of this quality for some reason to seek legal help! Why do they trust this man with thousands of dollars?
At one point some of the victims asked for my help to file a lawsuit against Mohammed N. Mujumdar and his law office. At first, I advised them not to get involved in the case and solve the problem, personally. But when Mujumdar failed to answer or return their calls, I was forced to call him. I told him directly that he was a hypocrite and has ruined the lives of many people. Finally, I said that call those victims to solve the problem very soon. Muzumdar squeaked like a rat, “Brother, I will call them right now.”
I heard a few days ago that he did nothing to resolve these issues and instead he is opting for the position of DEMOCRATIC DISTRICT LEADER from BRONX.
I have heard cries from two dozen people in the last five years. Their allegations are as follows:
1. He has taken thousands of dollars in promise of a green card in marriage, political asylum, job sponsorship, etc. But no receipt was given to them. When asked for a receipt, Mujumdar blatantly said, “Who asks for receipts for bribery?” After the victims paid thousands of dollars to an untouchable sweetheart named Mujumdar in the hope of getting a green card, he is far from meeting them, not even answering their phone calls. If anyone goes to his office, Mujumdar would scold them and take them out. When the victims talked about calling the police, Mujumdar used to say, “You are illegal, you don’t have a receipt. The police won’t believe you. I’m an attorney. I’ll call ICE and get you arrested.” The helpless people would seek help from some paralegal (also known as MUHURY); unfortunately they were victimized for a second time as those paralegal also did nothing but take a couple of hundred bucks promising help but no one could solve their problems.
2. Mohammed N. Muzumdar, the so-called leader of the community, did not give up, despite taking thousands of dollars to get green cards for various women and girls. He tricked many girls from the community into going to bed. When young couples went to his office, he preferred the wife to the husband, and later asked the young woman to meet him outside. Many were invited to “five-star hotels” but instead were taken to some cheap motels.
3. So far, many people have come to my office with evidence, but I have not been able to give them time. However, after checking the papers of three people, what I saw was as follows:
A. Mujumdar himself forged the signatures of the three persons without their knowledge.
B. After forging the signatures, he himself notarized those signatures again.
C. He took people’s hard earned money for immigration filing fees; but he did not pay that fee with the applications. He has satisfied those people by making a receipt from the cash register of grocery stores. Subsequently, immigration informed those people that their applications have been denied due to non-payment of the filing fees.
D. The applicant’s signature on Form G-28 (NOTICE OF APPEARANCE) is also forged. The forged form is signed by an attorney named Barry Silberzweig. I don’t know if that signature is real or fake.

A civil action is in the process of being filed against Mr. Mujumdar and his associates involved in these incidents, and for that reason we are unable to disclose further information.
