Chavez is wanted in connection with a series of crimes involving the passing of counterfeit U.S. currency throughout San Diego County.  Chavez targets sellers offering mobile phones for sale on sites such as “Offer Up”, “Let Go” and classified ads posted on “Craigslist”.  Chavez makes contact with the seller through the app or by texting.  Chavez will agree to a price and pays for the mobile device in cash.  In most cases, the victim does not discover the money they received from Chavez was counterfeit until after Chavez has already left with the device.  Chavez is known to use force or flee if confronted by a seller.
