fraud: Eight families were told that if they sent money, they would ensure sponsorship for immigration to Canada through a local church program, according to CTV. Police say the families sent about 200,000. Police first heard of the reported fraud from a community volunteer group in Toronto, whose relatives were the alleged victims. Police executed a search warrant at a home in Burlington and a suspect was arrested. A suspect identified as Bashar Abdulahad, 49, has been charged with eight counts of fraud over 5,000 and money laundering in connection with the fraud. Halton police are working with a local volunteer in Qatar to identify more victims, something they say is causing logistical issues considering the victims are currently living overseas and may be reluctant to come forward.
