A man from Ontario was left with just $9 after he was scammed of his life savings which are worth more than $8,200. Ganesh Khatry of Brampton Ontario was tricked into handing over his savings to scammers. He has been saving since he moved to Canada from Nepal 3 years ago in search of a better future.
Scams do not pick a season. Most scams are ongoing no matter what time of the year and even when similar scams are already being investigated after discovery by law enforcement. This is especially true in Brampton and Mississauga and so Peel police are warning residents that there are several common and ongoing scams making the rounds in the region.
Brampton’s audit committee was recently made aware of a million dollar secretive fund via report. Police are being asked to investigate following the discovery of a secret $1.25M staff fund that was given to non-union staff without the council’s knowledge. Brampton councilor John Sprovieri leads the demand for a policed investigation.
When you think of fraud, the farthest thing that would come to your mind is for someone to get himself kidnapped, beaten up, and thrown in a ditch. That would be beyond strange, indeed!
The situation above seems to be what happened to self-described millionaire Reza Mokhtarian. Mokhtarian claimed that he was kidnapped by 10 men, was beaten to a pulp, and then was dumped in a ditch in Brampton earlier this year.
