Woman Arrested on Nearly 80 Fraud Charges

A Brampton woman faces nearly 80 fraud charges related to crimes in Guelph and elsewhere in the province.

Between May and July 2022, a man and woman attended TD Canada Trust branches around Southern Ontario, usually with one or more small children in attendance. They opened bank accounts in false names and presented forged cheques from a well-known employer, claiming they needed cash urgently to feed their children and often causing the teller to waive the hold period.

The couple then attended ATMs and deposited more cheques, withdrawing as much cash as possible. The total loss to TD is estimated at more than $55,000.

A 26-year-old Brampton man turned himself in to police in December and faces similar charges.
