Local Condominium Corporations Defrauded
In July of 2018 the Saugeen Shores Police Service were contacted by a local condominium corporation concerning unusual activity with their company finances.
The corporation conducted an internal audit and discovered that cheques were being issued to a financial service contractor that no longer does business with the company. These cheques were being deposited into an account that did not belong to that contractor.
An investigation revealed that the licenced property manager, in control of units belonging to the corporation, had assumed the contractors identity to fraudulently obtain money from the corporation.
The alleged offences happened between the dates of September 2014 and November 2018. During this time period the property manager was also believed to have been in control of condo properties in other jurisdictions.
The Saugeen Shores Police Service believe that offences in other jurisdictions may have been committed in relation to this property manager.
The Condominium Management Regulatory Authority of Ontario has revoked the licence of the property manager.
The investigation into this matter is continuing.
54 year old Robin RUDOLPH of Saugeen Shores has been charged with 14 criminal offences:
- Make a forged document Criminal Code 367 x 5
- Personation with intent (identity fraud) Criminal Code 403(1)(b) x 5
- Fraud Under $5000 Criminal Code 380 x 3
She is to appear in Walkerton Court
