Mississauga residents seem to be a target for some common scams these days. It doesn?t really matter how scam-savvy you think you are, how good you are at filtering fake emergency emails, and how smart you are in avoiding those circling fake-CRA texts that demand you pay back taxes in the thousands.
Mississauga?s Rooms and Furniture Accessories has been serving customers since 2012 and it looks like they?ve been defrauding people since then. Just a quick google search and you?ll find complaints after complaints bearing the message DO NOT BUY. What?s incredible about all this is the fact that the store still seems to be operating today and still doing harm to people.
A Mississauga man has been given nine months in jail for his part in a fake identity scheme in Hamilton, Toronto and Kitchener used to obtain bank credit or loans. Nashaid Iqbal Bhatti and another man were charged in 2014 by the RCMP with fraud and money-laundering related to creating fake identities used to acquire legitimate pieces of ID and, ultimately, bank loans.
