Police in multiple states are searching for 58-year-old Gary Richard Hurwitz after the long-time fraudster duped would-be investors out of a ton of cash.
According to investigators, on September 2, 2021, Hurwitz, while concealing his true identity, encouraged a victim to engage in an investment opportunity by giving him money.
Over the next few weeks, additional funds were requested and provided to the Hurwitz totaling over $83,000.
Hurwitz promised to at least double the victim’s money from the investment. Hurwitz told the investor that the funds were being used to purchase equipment from a liquidating solar company called “Algonquin”.
Shortly after, the victim requested their money back after not receiving documentation for the investment, which the suspect failed to do. As a result of the investigation, an arrest warrant was obtained.
Hurwitz is also wanted out of Georgia and Maryland for similar schemes. Hurwitz is wanted by the Wicomico Sheriff’s Office on a FIVE Circuit Court Bench Warrants, all issued in June for Failure to Appear on the charges of Theft of $1500 to $25000.
