Mississauga-Private-investigations

A Mississauga man is facing 54 criminal charges following a four-month investigation into a series of alleged online credit card scams that were carried out across the Greater Toronto Area.

Halton regional police allege that someone placed several online orders at Best Buy using stolen credit card data. The packages were later intercepted by the accused after they were delivered by Canada Post, police say.

Police allege that the accused sometimes posed as a mail courier, trying to pick up the items from people who were understandably confused as to why packages were being delivered to their homes.

York, Durham and Peel regional police helped Halton in the investigation. Together, investigators arrested the accused after two alleged victims took photos and videos of a man who came to their doors to retrieve packages.

The accused is facing charges connected to 14 incidents that are alleged to have happened from?Oakville?to?Minden, Ont. It is alleged that he spent roughly $40,000 using stolen credit card information.

Officers are still investigating to see if there could be others affected by the scam.

Police are asking that anyone with information call them or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
