If a fraud has been committed from a landlords property can vicarious liability apply if landlord has been notified.

That is a very creative legal theory. There are some cases where vicarious liability works, but unfortunately, I don’t think this theory is strong in this instance. An overly simplified definition is when a principal has control over and/or directs its agent’s actions (e.g., an employer tells his HR chief to avoid hiring “those people”). The HR chief carries out the discriminatory hiring process, but it was being done at the behest of the company—hence, the company is liable.
In your question, you’d likely be required to show landlord exercises control over the tenant in a manner where the landlord is directing the tenant to rip off customers. That’s quite unlikely.
