The York Regional Police Major Fraud Unit have charged a 41-year-old man from the City of Brampton in connection with a $30,000 fraud and they believe there may be more victims. The investigation began in April 2016, after a 51-year-old woman from the City of Vaughan came forward to report that she had been defrauded.

The victim told investigators that after meeting a person online and falling victim to a classic romance scam, the fraudster agreed to pay back some of the victim’s money that was allegedly borrowed. Arrangements were made to meet an associate, who claimed to be a diplomat from the United Kingdom by the name of Adam David who would return her funds. The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Newmarket on September 29, 2016.
