Rogamas and Posada Cuadros, according to FGR, were at the head of the group that offered the victims “discounts and benefits on tourist programs and airline tickets that were found to be fraudulent.” When people tried to redeem the packages they had purchased, they could not be redeemed because they were counterfeit.
