Santos claims to be a “wealthy man” in corporate finance, who owns mansions in Oyster Bay and the Hamptons; was a graduate of Baruch College and attended New York University; lost four co-workers in the 2016 mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub massacre; has millions in cash assets – and even spoke at local Synagogues claiming he is Jewish. All lies.
Instead, Santos is a really just a petty criminal from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is currently wanted in Brazil on criminal charges of committing elder fraud and check forgery. He stole checkbooks from the elderly patients of his late mother – who was a home healthcare nurse – and forged the checks to steal merchandise, according to prosecutors in Brazil.
Santos owns no real estate according to the New York Times – and the Leader’s earlier reporting. He claimed to own “a mansion” on Tiffany Lane in Oyster Bay Cove, and “a mansion” on Dune Road in the Hamptons. All lies.
Santos never graduated from Baruch College or NYU. Neither school has any record of him, according to the Times. He is a high school drop-out, who earned a High School equivalency diploma.
He claims to have worked for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup – neither firm has any record of him.
None of the victims of the Pulse mass shooting had any connection to Santos.
“Santos declared his net worth in 2020 to be ‘less than $5,000,’ but then made a $600,000 loan just a few months later – and now in 2022 he claims he’s worth $11 million… it doesn’t add up,” stated one Long Island political operative.theleaderonline The Leader Told You So: US Rep-Elect George Santos is a Fraud – and Wanted Criminal
