AUGUST 24, 2009

An Ottawa man is charged with multiple counts of fraud after he allegedly pocketed money two seniors had given him to pay their taxes while masquerading as an accountant.

The money had been given to him in trust, said Det. Brenda-Jane Kerr of the Ottawa Police Organized Fraud Section Office from the elder abuse unit were also involved in the investigation.

The victims face penalties from the Canada Revenue Agency for failing to pay their taxes, Kerr said, though she said the CRA had been "understanding" in waiving some of the them.

Kelvin Samuel Williams, 37, is charged with two counts each of fraud over $5,000, criminal breach of trust, theft by person required to account, misappropriation of money held under direction, fraudulent concealment and possession of property obtained by crime.

Police believe there may be other victims. Anyone with information is asked to contact Kerr at 613-236-1222 ext. 5943.
