The Nova Scotia serial rent fraudster
Halifax RCMP arrested the Nova Scotia serial rent fraudster in a stolen rental car in Dartmouth on December 18 of last year. The police received a report about Even-Har, who refused to pay for a hotel stay. During the investigation, they discovered outstanding warrants from Antigonish Country in Even-Har’s name. Over the past three years, he conducted a series of frauds in the greater Halifax area.
He defrauded two Nova Scotian landlords. Media reports described him as a ‘nightmare tenant’ and ‘serial rent dodger’. Moreover, in the last years, he left behind thousands of dollars in unsettled hotel bills and car rental fees.
