Mexican fugitive extradited to U.S. on charges of real estate fraud

Mexico City, Mexico — A Mexican fugitive wanted in Pennsylvania for real estate fraud has been extradited. On Tuesday, the Attorney General of the Republic (FGR) reported on the extradition of Rodolfo “G” for real estate crimes that date back to 2014.

An investigation by U.S. officials determined that Rodolfo “G”, along with others, defrauded several potential investors with claims of a fake real estate company for the management of their vacation rental properties.

According to the FGR, Rodolfo “G”, along with unnamed accomplices, caused an estimated $1.6 million USD in damages to the victims. He had been on the run as a fugitive since the investigation findings.

In their statement, the FGR said “Rodolfo “G” was required by the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, since an investigation carried out by U.S. law enforcement revealed that the extradited person, in 2014, together with other individuals, defrauded several people making them believe that he had a real estate company and would support them in the supposed rental of their vacation properties in Mexico.

“This person and his accomplices caused $1.6 million dollars in property damage to the victims. The fugitive was located and detained in León, Guanajuato, in October 2023.”

Authorities did not say where the vacation properties were located or how many people were involved.
