In September 2019, a realty business located in Etobicoke had mailed out a commission cheque. When the intended recipient reached out advising that the cheque was never received, it was noticed that the cheque had already been cashed. A complaint was filed with Toronto Police. An investigation discovered a second cheque had been cashed, and surveillance showed Carla depositing the first cheque.
Carla was charged with fraud over $5000, utter forged document, and possess proceeds of property or thing obtained by crime.
Resolution: Carla plead guilty to fraud under $5000. She received a suspended sentence plus 12 months non reporting probation. The charges of utter forged documents and possess proceeds of crime were withdrawn.
