No, that is not considered "immigration fraud" in the least bit. Sorry.

I understand if your brother feels that he was "used" for green card purposes. If he thought this marriage was genuine, then it would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) to prove the wife was in the relationship just for green card. That being said, the soon-to-be ex-wife would have to go through I-751 (removal of the condition) process by herself and show the marriage was in good faith....of course if she received a 2-year conditional resident status (and it's up to your brother to cooperate with her in documenting the relationship).
