- Police informant since 1998.
- Has collected thousands of hours of wiretap evidence. Should be enough to bring down the entire Messina Syndicate when arrests are made in the new year.
- Younger brother of Mark Anthony Volpe. Another Capo in the Messina family.
- Agreed to become an informant when evidence of plot by senior family members to castrate him was revealed.
- The name "Volpe" means "fox" in Italian, which is quite ironic with his sneaky actions (informing the police).
- In GTA Chinatown Wars, Rudy D'Avanzo found out that there was an informant in the ranks, but sent the assassin, Huang Lee after the wrong man - Jimmy Capra.
- It is possible that Fredo and his brother are based on cousins Frank and Edward Lino who were both Capos in the Mafia, one of which, Frank, turned informant against Bonnano boss Joe Massino in 2006.
