Peel Police have arrested a man wanted in a series of frauds.
On November 4, 2018, the man persuaded a 70-year-old Brampton man to get a home security monitoring system. In order to complete the security job, the victim was told to give the suspect two brand new cell phones and the victim’s laptop, which were never returned to the victim.
In early 2019, a 64-year-old Toronto woman met the suspect at a bingo hall. In July, the suspect advised the victim of a used vehicle he had for sale. The woman paid a partial deposit to the man; however, was unable to receive the vehicle or her money back.
On July 9, a 33-year-old Mississauga woman met the suspect at a bingo hall. The man persuaded her to buy two new cellphones and hand them over to the suspect to be unlocked. The victim was unable to get her phones or money back.
