A Barrie, Ont. woman who received a bill for travelling on Ontario’s highway 407 ETR with a luxury vehicle she doesn’t own has police investigating an unusual case of identity fraud.

The woman informed Service Ontario that the plates on the 2012 Range Rover didn’t belong to her, but Service Ontario told her the plates, and the vehicle, were both registered in her name at the end of March.

Police later discovered the vehicle was purchased at a Woodbridge dealership using proper identification and a driver’s license in the Barrie woman’s name. However, the photo on the driver’s license was of a suspect police are seeking for identity fraud, not the Barrie woman.
