T.O. man accused of running fake immigration biz
TORONTO - A Toronto man is due in court today accused of running a fraudulent immigration employment business.
Police say a man offered people employment opportunities for family members and friends living in the Philippines.
It's alleged the man charged a $1,000 up-front fee per applicant to cover administration costs to complete the immigration process.
Police say the man gave excuses for several months about why immigration documents could not be obtained.
Marion Navalta Valdez, 46, was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of fraud over $5,000 and seven counts of fraud under $5,000.
Police say there may be more alleged victims.
