Suspect Arrested for Fraud Offence in Burlington

Halton Police have arrested a suspect following a fraud offence incident in Burlington.

The suspect, a man from Ajax, was arrested and charged with alleged fraud stemming from a series of incidents in 2012.

The accused, Jamshid (James) Pournader (65) has been charged with one count of alleged fraud over $5,000.

According to police, the accused is associated with a company JSP Holdings and has acted as a ‘financial representative’ with access to investment services and products.

However, a victim came forward to police after her bank assisted with a review of her personal finances and investments. 

Police say the loss to the victim is $212,000. 

Police are reminding the public that financial advisors, mortgage brokers and insurance agents are all licenced and regulated by various provincial organizations.  

“Your investments and purchases should be with a regulated financial institution and investors should regularly review their investments and statements,” reads a press release.
