The Halton Regional Police have arrested a male party in connection with a Romance Scam in which two female victims were defrauded following separate relationships started via the Internet.

The two females, one in her thirties and the other in her fifties, entered into what they believed were trusting relationships with a male party.

The male had set up a fake profile on a popular dating site representing himself as Alex Hermain, a 38 year old from Burlington. He selected his victims and made the first contact, soon to weave a fabulous sounding story of success.

He established a dating relationship which quickly turned into a scam to “borrow” money that he never paid back.

Due to the nature of dating sites, it is unknown if the accused has several aliases and the Halton Police are appealing to the public for anyone that may have had contact with the accused.

Accused is Zeeshan Qureshi, (30 Yrs) from Hamilton and charged with Fraud over $5000 as well as Fraud Under $5000 and Possession of Proceeds of Crime.

The accused is due in court on March 26th, 2014 at 9:00am in Milton.

Anyone with information on this can contact Detective Larry Burns, Regional Fraud Unit at 905 825-4747 ext 8738

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).
