Ottawa police have posted a security photo on their website of a person of interest in a fraud investigation. Investigators say a woman approached a man downtown on March 31st and convinced him to make a donation to an unknown charity. It’s alleged the man was taken to a nearby A-T-M and that once he entered his PIN number, the woman pushed him aside and took cash from his account. Police say they believe the man was targeted due to his cognitive disability.
The female is described as an Asian female, approximately 35 years old, small build wearing black pants and a black jacket (view pictures.)
