Toronto police are seeking information from Peel residents about Rayan Ahmed, an Ajax-based door-to-door salesman who may have been selling his consulting services in Peel.
He ran a business called SRA & Associates, offering to help break contracts and get money back from other door-to-door companies that sold homeowners a variety of household appliances and services including new heating contracts, water heaters and water purifiers.
In mid-2018, he was operating in the Jane Street and Lawrence Avenue West area of Toronto. An elderly woman paid SRA & Associates $15,000 for help getting her money back after a different company sold her four water softeners and four water purifiers meant for a building 10 times the size of her small bungalow, White said.
She did not get her money back for the water softeners or water purifiers. Ahmed was charged with one count of fraud over $5,000 as a result.
Now police think Ahmed could’ve also struck residents in Peel and are seeking information from anyone who has encountered the fraud. Anyone with information should call 416-808-1200. -CINEWS
