From January to May of this year, the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System recorded a total of 2,798 cases that are being investigated for the crime of fraud. Of that total, 853 occurred in January, 537 in February, 458 in March, 506 in April and 444 in May.

In the first days of July, specifically on the 4th, Juan Pablo F., 46 years old, was arrested for committing fraud for 116 thousand dollars, which represents 2 million 140 thousand Mexican pesos.

For this reason, a judge last Friday ordered him to be held in preventive detention for 12 months, after the legal representation stated that the alleged perpetrator agreed to comply with two meat sales contracts, one dated December 5, 2022 for the amount of 36 thousand dollars and another dated March 2, 2023 for 80 thousand dollars.

This person was located after a joint operation between the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office for Strategic Operations (FEOE), the Attorney General’s Office (FGR) and the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).

The investigation revealed that this man, along with other Argentine nationals, deceived his victims, mostly businessmen, by posing as important suppliers of basic necessities, including in the meat market.

As part of his modus operandi, the accused even took the victims to that country so that they could see the supposed way his companies worked in order to generate people’s trust. However, it was all a setup orchestrated by the fraudsters themselves, with the aim of obtaining large sums of money for said products, which never arrived.

During the hearing held at the Superior Court of Justice (TSJ), the Public Prosecutor’s Office determined that Juan Pablo should be given the precautionary measure of preventive detention for twelve months since, according to the testimony of the lawyers, he could flee since he has every opportunity.

In response, the defense requested that the trial be conducted in freedom and on the condition that the defendant go to sign; however, that was denied.

One of the reasons why he was not authorized to apply precautionary measures was because the accused has no real roots in his country since the United States Consulate did not want to give him a visa.

“If they deny it, it is because there is no real legal relationship. On January 14, he went to request it and ultimately he did not get it,” said the judge.

The next hearing will be on July 10th at 11:00 in the morning.

The crime of fraud is one committed by a person who, by deceiving another or taking advantage of his or her error, obtains an undue advantage or profit, for himself or herself or for someone else.
