Two Laguna Beach men, Adam Zuckerman, 37, and Jeff Greenough, 48, were among 23 defendants charged Nov. 7 with fraud in an FBI’s investigation into alleged multimillion-dollar leasing scams dubbed Operation Lease Fleece. Neither man has entered a plea to date, according to Department of Justice spokesman Thom Mrozek. Zuckerman, who owned and operated Brickbanc Capital in Costa Mesa, was charged with one count of mail fraud, Mrozek said. “There is no indication when he will appear in court or even if he has an attorney,” Mrozek said.
