A seething Queens judge walloped three members of a crooked Richmond Hill family yesterday, sending them upstate to serve a combined 418 years for a brazen immigration and real-estate scam.
The mom, dad and daughter — dubbed “The Ramsundar Gang” by Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder — paid a shocking price for defrauding 19 families of $1.8 million over six years.
Holder said his harsh sentences are nothing compared to the street justice the Ramsundar family would have faced back in their native Trinidad.
“You and I know, that if you did this fraud and paraded and strutted it in your own country, you would have probably been hacked to death,” Holder told the family, which immigrated from Trinidad in the ’90s.

Father. Mother. Daughter. All thieves.
A Queens judge Wednesday hammered a family of con artists with a combined 418-year prison sentence for duping fellow Caribbean immigrants out of $1.8 million of their life savings.
Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder slammed the Ramsundar family — daughter Shantal, 23, and parents Shane, 52, and Gomatee, 48, — as “the most despicable gang of criminals to ever sit in front of me.”
“You and I know that if you did this fraud and paraded and strutted around in front of your own people, in your own country, you probably would have all been hacked to death,” Holder told the family, which hails from Trinidad. “But not in this country. Now it’s your time to hear your return on your investment for your crime,” the judge said.
Shane Ramsundar was slapped with a maximum 235-year sentence. His wife got up to 153 years and daughter 30 years.
