Toronto police have charged Bum Joon Kim with 21 fraud related offences stemming from him posing as a fake landlord.
Kim would regularly advertise and accept cash deposits for units that weren’t up for rent. TPS state that Kim had been posting advertisements starting in June until late October at the time of his arrest.
He would then meet with the prospective tenants and show them various apartment units that were apparently for rent.
The man allegedly collected cash deposits from the victims, who later found out that the units were not theirs to live in.
Toronto police arrested him, 39, of no fixed address on Monday and charged him with three counts of fraud over $5,000 and 18 counts of fraud under $5,000.
He is scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on Tuesday morning.
