A Toronto woman has been charged with fraud following Toronto Police’s investigation into what they say is a $1.9 million fraud scheme.

Gwendolyne Martinez Rodriguez, 30, was arrested Monday morning.

Rodriguez, the owner and director of GMR Consulting, is accused of forging cheques in her own name and in the name of her company.

Police allege that over a two-year-period, she defrauded former clients of about $1.9 million. She has been charged with fraud over $5,000 and uttering a forged document. Police are concerned that other current and former clients of GMR Consulting may have suffered similar losses.

Rodriguez was scheduled to appear in court on Monday at 2 p.m.

Police ask anyone with information to either contact them at 416-808-5100, phone Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.222tips.com , or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).
