Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez is asking for the public to report any information they may have about a Las Vegas man charged with defrauding Northern Nevadans in real estate and mortgage scams.

George Christo George, 54, was arrested Aug. 14 in Las Vegas on a warrant issued in Reno charging him with theft, obtaining money under false pretenses and mortgage fraud.

'We urge those who may be a victim in this case or any other mortgage fraud case to report the issue to our office," said Masto.
