Arrest Warrant for Hesperia Real Estate Fraud

Salvador Anzo Sr., 44, is a wanted man.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office received a court-ordered $2.1 million arrest warrant for Anzo, accusing him and others of conspiring to sell 22 vacant land parcels that they did not own. The real owners found about the fraudulent “sales” (title fraud) when they received their property tax bills. Criminals selling property they do not own is becoming a more frequently committed form of real estate fraud, especially in California.

According to Senior Investigator Tina Greco of the DA’s Real Estate Fraud Unit, many of the victims were elderly (elder financial fraud), who Anzo and his co-conspirators allegedly found in the PennySaver newspaper by advertising vacant land for sale. The total amount of the real estate scam is approximately $980,000.
