The Toronto Police would like to make the public aware of an investigation into Pizza delivery Fraud. We are seeking the public's assistance identifying three men believed to be involved in this investigation.
Since mid-july Toronto Police, as well as neighbouring Police Services in the GTA, have been receiving reports of incidents in which debit cards have been compromised by persons posing as pizza delivery drivers
It is reported that:
- pizza orders, which were placed for delivery, were intercepted by a group of at least three male suspects
- the suspects would then deliver the intercepted pizza to the intended customers
- the customers would in turn pay using their debit card to the hand held debit device which was presented to them
- during the transaction the card of the unsuspecting customer would be compromised, and the suspects would switch the debit card with a similar looking non-active card
- the suspect would leave the home, attend a nearby automatic banking machine, and conduct fraudulent banking transactions
The images of three suspects is attached.
