Man charged in snow clearing scam
Toronto Police have charged a man for a snow plow scam.
Police say "Eric" posted flyers in North York, offering snow removal services through his company "Unique Seasonal Services". He'd take cash & cheques from homeowners to clear their snow for the season.
But when the white stuff did come down, Eric never showed up. When victims called him, his number was out of service.
Seniors are among the victims. Some of them became housebound because of the buildup of snow outside.
Police believe there could be more victims & want to hear from anyone who may have hired "Eric".
They aren't releasing his real name or his photo, but the man has been charged with fraud & possession of property obtained by crime.
