The Halton Regional Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the person(s) responsible for a multi-victim mail theft/identity fraud that targeted a condominium building in Milton between November 2018 and May 2019. The suspect(s) stole and/or redirected mail and later conducted bank account takeovers by having fraudulent identities added on as supplementary cardholders. The suspect(s) also opened new credit card accounts under the victims’ identities online.
The pictured male suspect then used the fraudulent credit cards to rack up thousands of dollars per card on products and gift cards across the GTA. Six victims have been identified at this time with a possibility of more who have not reported the fraudulent account activity to police due to financial institutions reimbursing the financial loss.
Suspect: Male, Black, 35-45 years old, clean shaven, wearing various clothes but often Under Armour® branding.
