Durham Police yesterday said a 27-year-old male is facing fraud charges after defrauding victims of more than $50,000.

After taking first and last month’s rent the accused would cease all communication.  Investigators were able to determine the apartments never existed and were able to locate over 35 victims, said a police statement.

On Sunday, May 14, members from Central West Division attended the area of Simcoe Street North and Conlin Road in Oshawa where they located the male who was arrested on outstanding warrants.

The suspect of Oshawa was charged, police said. Name and further details available at
