Fraud Charge after Collecting $10K in Social Services Benefits

A Guelph man who collected nearly $10,000 in social services benefits to which he was not entitled has been charged with fraud.

The man began receiving benefits in early 2000 after reporting he had no income. Investigation revealed he started working later that year but did not report that income, receiving an overpayment of benefits of $9,981.

The man was notified of the overpayment in June, 2021, but took no steps to address it and police were notified. On Wednesday he turned himself in.

A 40-year-old Guelph man is charged with fraud over $5,000. He will appear in court July 23.
