Police allege Imelda “Mel” Fronda Saluma, 46, was behind a massive scam that bilked more than $2.3 million from 600 prospective Filipino immigrants. The mother of four was charged in February and had more fraud-related offences added last week. She now faces 73 charges involving allegedly selling forged employment documents to foreigners so they could apply to come to Canada as temporary foreign workers. Police say the ongoing investigation still hasn’t uncovered the full extent of the alleged racket.
