Fraudulent Scheme Leads to Nearly $9,000 Theft From Car Seller: Three Defendants Agree to Return Money

Three individuals have been prosecuted for defrauding a car seller and stealing nearly $9,000 from his bank account. Guillermo Antonio Montalvo, Daysi Esmeralda Campos, and Teresa de Jesús Campos contacted the victim in February 2022, pretending to be interested in buying his car. They convinced the seller to provide sensitive information, including his access code, by sending him a link for an international bank transfer. With this information, they emptied his account.

The Second Investigative Court of Soyapango has authorized an agreement for the defendants to return the stolen amount of $8,845. Montalvo has agreed to pay $4,000, half of which will be paid at the end of the hearing, with the remaining amount to be paid in forty monthly installments of $100. Teresa de Jesús Campos, who did not appear in court, will pay $1,000 in May and then $100 monthly until the total sum of $2,000 is repaid.

Daysi Esmeralda Campos will repay $2,000 in installments until January 2026. She will remain under arrest for other pending charges. The case serves as a reminder to be cautious when sharing sensitive information online, especially when dealing with unknown individuals.
