TORONTO - A 25-year-old man from Richmond Hill, Ont., has been charged with fraud after allegedly posing as an immigration consultant and a car dealer to pocket more than $730,000.

Police allege the man, who is not a licensed immigration consultant, charged clients a fee to ease their entry into Canada, but he didn't provide the service.

Police also allege the man sold high-end vehicles at drastically reduced prices, but kept the money without actually delivering them.

Fourteen people were defrauded between November 2005 and April 2007.

Arif Versi is charged with fraud over $5,000.

He is scheduled to appear in a Newmarket, Ont., court in July.
