Man charged in fraud investigation
Windsor police are investigating after victims were swindled out of over $800,000.
The Financial Crimes Unit began the investigation in April 2022 after a victim reported they provided over $350,000, over the course of several months, to a person as part of an investment scheme. The victim reported the person advised the money would be invested in the buying and selling of vehicles.
A second victim has also come forward and reported they gave the same person a large sum of money for the same purpose.
Investigators believe the money was never used for the specified purpose.
A 35-year-old Windsor man has been charged with fraud over $5,000.
Police say there is the potential for other victims. They are encouraging anyone with further information to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Windsor Police Service – Financial Crimes Unit at 519-255-6700 ext. 4330, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.catchcrooks.com.
