Montreal police are looking for a 19-year-old man who is charged with fraud and theft, and who they say has failed to respect his bail conditions.
Sam Nabizadah was arrested on July 13 and released on a promise to appear in court. He was to comply with several court conditions, including a curfew, a ban on social media and a requirement that he check in with SPVM on a weekly basis.
Police say Nabizadah continued to commit fraud and theft from young women using dating sites Badoo and Tinder.
Police say he uses the same scam on all of his victims; he tells them that he is a newly arrived student in Canada and therefore he does not have a bank account.
He then allegedly asks his victims to deposit a cheque into their bank accounts and withdraw the cash for him; but when preparing the envelope to deposit, he does not put a cheque inside. The victim then deposits an empty envelope into her bank account and gives Nabizadah money from their accounts.
