A Las Vegas man was charged in a $ 2 million federal relief fraud case


Federal prosecutors said that a Nevada man was charged with obtaining nearly $ 2 million in federal coronavirus relief aid intended for small businesses to buy luxury cars and condominiums in Las Vegas.

The US Attorney’s Office in Nevada reported that Jorge Abramov was charged with bank fraud after he applied for financing for at least seven banks between April and June 2020.

The complaint said Abramov used a variety of company names – the National Investment Group Company, the National Legal Advisors in Sponsorship, and the National Investment Group – that “misrepresented the number of employees and the amount of revenue and payroll that his companies had” to banks.

The complaint said financial analysis determined that Abramov spent the money on personal luxury items, including a 2020 Bentley Continental GT that had revealed more than $ 260,000 and a 2020 Tesla Model 3 for $ 55,000.

A detention order for Abramov was issued during a hearing.
