After receiving several complaints about cruises offered by a Ridgeway resident, Niagara police began an investigation back in  February,.

Over 140 complainants alleged that a woman solicited funds between August 2016 and February 2017 for multiple cruises that were either never booked or were not as advertised.

She has been charged with one count of fraud  over $5,000 ( defraud the public ) and one count of fraud under $5,000.

Gushue  was held for a bail hearing and released with numerous conditions.
