Two Mississauga Men Charged With Allegedly Defrauding People Out of Over $1 Million
Two Mississauga men, including a former Mississauga MP, are facing charges in connection with an alleged fraud that bilked a number of individuals out of more than $1 million.
The RCMP recently announced that officers have arrested and charged 71-year-old Mississauga man Wajid Ali Khan and 48-year-old Mississauga man Nadeem Imtiaz Ahmed with false pretense and fraud.
Khan, a former politican, was once the member of parliament for Mississauga-Streetsville.
Police say the investigation, known as Project Alcazar, began in January 2015 when victims alleged that the accused men had defrauded them of money.
The RCMP says it believes the two men fraudulently borrowed more than $1.1 million from their personal contacts in Canada, telling their victims they were using the money to purchase investment properties on their behalf in Pakistan.
Khan has been charged with three counts of false pretense, three counts of fraud and one count of uttering a forged document. Ahmed has been charged with two counts of false pretense, two counts of fraud and one count of uttering a forged document.
Police say additional charges may be laid if more victims come forward.
