Attorney General Conway Issues Warning in Notario Scam
Attorney General Jack Conway issued a warning today about a scam targeting immigrants in Kentucky.
Investigators report that a man, claiming to be a "notario" or notary, has approached immigrants in two counties saying that he will assist them in obtaining their I-130’s or "green cards" in exchange for cash. Forty-nine-year-old Ronald M. Alvarez, has reportedly received several thousand dollars for services he never provides before he disappears.
Alvarez has been indicted in Warren and Nelson counties on two counts of theft by deception of more than $300.
If you have information about Alvarez or his whereabouts, please contact the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office at (502) 348-1870.
Ronald M. Alvarez, 49
