HOUSTON – A man is accused of forging information on a real estate loan application.

Robert Nathan Neel, 23, is charged with felony theft and forgery against the elderly in Harris County.

Authorities said Neel forged his employer's information on an application for a loan against a pending real estate sale commission. The loan company then bought the commission and wired money to Neel’s account. Neel then allegedly spent the money and the real estate transaction was found to have never existed.

“Robert Neel's employer had never given him consent to use her identifying information on the fraudulent transaction,” Harris County Precinct Four Constable Mark Herman said.

Neel is out on $7,000 bond.
