Township of Alnwick-Haldimand (August 12, 2019) – Brian O’Donaghue has been charged with fraud after allegedly offering to install internet towers in the Township of Alnwick-Haldimand. The 29-year old is facing charges of fraud over $5,000, Global News reports.
Two former clients reported to the OPP that the accused allegedly claimed to work for an internet company and offered to install internet towers to improve their signals. Thereafter, he putatively was partly paid in advance. But, after he received the up-front payment, he never started the installation and supposedly could not be reached anymore by his principals.
The OPP arrested the man from Port Hope, Ontario as a result of the investigations into fraudulent internet tower installations.
