Two men, one youth from Quebec charged with fraud in New Brunswick


Police say two men and one youth from Quebec have been charged in connection with an investigation into a series of frauds across New Brunswick.

A release states the RCMP and Fredericton Police Force have been investigating at least seven incidents of fraudulent purchases in the Fredericton, Woodstock and Moncton area between July 22 and July 26, which included purchases of lodging and jeweler using fraudulent credit cards and fake identification.

RCMP say in some cases, when the suspects attempted to make purchases, the cards were declined.

Police say two men and a 17-year-old boy, all from Laval, Quebec, were arrested on July 26 in Moncton.

The teen appeared in court on Monday and was released on conditions pending another appearance in September.

RCMP say the two men, 19-year-old Jamal Ibrahim and 18-year-old Haitam Samdi appeared in court on Tuesday and were remanded into custody until their next court date in August.

Police say their investigation is ongoing, and anyone who may have had a business interaction with the accused, who experienced similar incidents of fraud, or who may have information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact their local police force.
