Man Busted for Using Fake ID at Phone Store

Man uses a Fake ID to make a Phone Purchase

Another instance of retail fraud accompanied by a fake ID was reported in Canada last Sunday.  Police were called to a cellphone store on Holiday Drive Saturday afternoon when a Toronto man tried to purchase in iPhone using fraudulent identification.  This is a trend that we are seeing more and more often with people attempting to use a stolen credit card to purchase goods.

We warn all of our customers to please be vigilant about checking IDs upon checkout.  We are working diligently to reduce the amount of retail fraud that occurs through the US and Canada by equipping businesses with the ID scanning tools to identify fake IDs used in these types of transactions.  Luckily in this situation, the man was remanded, and will face criminal charges.
