46-David-Nanes-Schnitze_picDavid Nanes Schnitzer – the name made headlines back in November 2015 – when it was discovered that the man who was wanted by Mexico authorities for alleged international scams was caught hiding in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.

Schnitzer, who had developed a false identity under the name “David Banes”, was detained and charged by Belizean authorities for forgery, for the fraudulent social security and driver’s license cards and passport he held under the fake identity.


While facing charges, Schnitzer was granted bail and never did turn up for his Court date. He was never seen again or heard of, until this weekend when Schnitzer popped up on the news that he was in Police custody.

Schnitzer was reportedly caught by Interpol at the airport in Mexico City attempting to board a plane to Cuba on Thursday January 26th.


Nanes faces very serious fraud charges in Mexico for his alleged role as the former President of Stanford Funds. He is accused of leading a scam on investors that involved over 706 million pesos or over BZE $78 million.


At the time of his escape from Belizean authorities, Mexico was requesting his extradition, but this was not complied with and instead Nanes was taken to a lower court where he was freed on bail.


According to the international reports, Nanes continues to claim Belizean and Mexican nationalities.
