Greenwood Man Accused Of Extorting Money From 20

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - Police have arrested a Delaware man after he allegedly extorted money from twenty people, over seven years. Delaware State Police say 47-year-old Jose Oyola, of Greenwood, took hundreds and thousands from victims of the Hispanic community, through tax fraud.

According to the report Oyola was supposed to complete the victim's taxes, before they entered an English as a Second Language program at Sussex Tech - Adult Education. Police say in addition to the taxes services, Oyola also offered to help the victims get work visas, drivers licenses, and housing, but never delivered on any of it.

In one incident, Oyola allegedly threatened to go to immigration with personal information, in an apparent attempt to stop the victim from attending the ESL class.

Police say they have been investigation Oyola since 2010. On Thursday, he was charged with five counts of theft by false pretense, and one count of extortion. He was released on $22,500 bond.
