A Ventura woman pleaded guilty to fraud and grand theft for defrauding investors in a real estate scam. According to prosecutors, the scheme netted Gregoria Mendoza nearly half of a million dollars from investors in Ventura, Los Angeles and Tulare counties. Mendoza told investors that their money would be invested in real estate; in reality, Mendoza kept the money for herself.
