NYC woman fakes her grandma’s signature to steal home: lawsuit

Grandkids are supposed to steal your heart — not your house. A Brooklyn woman allegedly hijacked her grandmother’s longtime home by forging the elder’s signature on a fake deed and filing it with the city — then took out a $399,000 mortgage on the property, according to a $5 million lawsuit.
