Famous Nigerian actress, Deborah Oguntoyinbo has been arrested for fraud.
The police in Canada arrested her for stealing identities of 20 women which she used to commit a large scale fraud. She was nabbed after she tried fleeing a luxury condominium complex in Markham (north of Toronto).
The screen diva tried renting the condo with the name Natalia Bozic. The real Natalia Bozic who is a self-employed esthetician from Mississauga confirmed that someone destroyed her life by using her personal information to get into her bank account, apply for loans and credit cards, change all her passwords. She also disclosed that $4,000 was stolen from her account.
She said; “It was June 10, and it told me to call the phone number listed. So I called them, and they told me to come to the bank.”
“They investigated and put my account on freeze. They told me nobody can put money in and nobody can take money out.”
“Someone reset passwords, reset security questions, reset my phone to a new phone number, created a new email address so I don’t get notified my password changed.”
York Regional Police Sgt. Andy Pattenden said that;
“Oguntoyinbo definitely would be considered a professional fraudster, knows what she’s doing and is quite prolific. She’s really been all over the Greater Toronto Area.”
We gathered that the police in at least four Toronto-area jurisdictions have filed identity theft-related charges against Oguntoyinbo. Court records revealed that she is accused of stealing the identities of two people in Peel.
The Halton Police have also accused her of stealing the identities of 11 people, while York Police alleged she stole four identities.
The actress is currently behind bars as the latest round of charges work their way through court systems in the four jurisdictions. Forged drivers’ licences, social insurance numbers and passports in the names of other people were seized from her. Also is used stolen cheques to buy a Mercedes Benz and a BMW.
