YRP PARTICIPATES IN TELEMARKETING RING ARRESTS
Members of the York Regional Police Central Fraud Unit assisted the Toronto Strategic Partnership in
Deceptive Telemarketing and its partners in arresting members of a sophisticated cross-border telemarketing
ring which, in turn, shut down two Toronto telemarketing rooms.
On Monday, September 26, 2005, members of the Toronto Strategic Partnership in Deceptive Telemarketing,
which includes the Toronto Police Service Fraud Squad, the Ontario Provincial Police, Phonebusters, the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Greater Toronto Area Commercial Crime Section, the Competition Bureau,
the United States Postal Inspection Service, the Federal Trade Commission, the United Kingdom Office of Fair
Trading, the Ontario Ministry of Government Services and York Regional Police, executed several search
warrants which resulted in the businesses being shut down. At the same time, an operation in Calgary was
simultaneously shut down by the Alberta Partnership, who also executed a warrant.
York Regional Police assigned 10 investigators from the Central Fraud Unit and #1 District Criminal
Investigation Bureau, to assist in the execution of the warrants.
It is alleged that from 2002 to 2005, a telemarketing scheme was set up and perpetuated in Canada. The
targeted victims were mainly U.S. citizens.
U.S. consumers were contacted through direct telephone communications and/or through the Internet and
were offered a guaranteed unsecured credit card with a credit limit of $2,000. The low interest credit card had
0% interest on purchases and no annual fees. To complete the sale, some consumers were persuaded to
divulge their bank account information so that an advance fee of approximately $249 U.S. could be withdrawn
from their account. Consumers made the payment and no credit cards were received.
Toronto Police investigators believe there are more than 70,000 victims who were defrauded of millions of U.S.
