A Brampton man is facing charges in connection with an alleged apartment rental scam, that at least defrauded one person.

Goran Drozdek, 33, is facing two charges of fraud under $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime and three counts of failing to comply with probation.

Police say a 27-year-old woman responded to an online ad for a rental apartment in late September.

They say she then met with a man, signed a lease and handed over a cash deposit, only to realize later that she had been duped.

Police say the ads were posted under an unspecified alias, and they are asking anyone who believes they were defrauded to come forward.

Investigators say they made an arrest Tuesday in response to another ad.
