Fraudulent sale of Tony Hsieh property reversed by judge

A judge ruled this week that someone fraudulently sold a building owned by Tony Hsieh after he died, reports the Review-Journal.

Lawyers for the estate identified the man who sold the building for $1.2 million as Santiago Espinosa. They say he falsely identified himself as a managing member of Hsieh’s limited liability corporation.

District Judge Gloria Sturman described the sale as “clearly fraudulent.”

According to 8 News Now, the judge’s ruling reversed the sale of the property at South Ninth Street and Bridger Avenue. Lawyers are not even sure Espinosa is a real person nor can they find the person who notarized the sale. Investigators suspect this may be part of a larger fraudulent scheme around the Las Vegas Valley.

The buyer of the building is still out the money exchanged in the sale.

Hsieh who died in a house fire in 2020 did not leave a will. His father is currently serving as administrator of the estate.
