People are just getting busy these days.
According to prosecutors, the first victim met with the suspect in the area of Islington Avenue and Dixon Road after seeing a posting on kijiji- an advertising platform – advertising the sale of an iPhone 6.
He, according to the Police, gave the dealer money for what was supposed to be an iPhone 6 in a sealed box. But when he opened the box, the only thing inside was rice.
A second person reportedly fell victim to the same trick this month after meeting with a man in the area of Albion Road and Kipling Avenue.
Gyimah was arrested in connection with both incidents last week.
He is facing two counts of fraud under $5,000, two counts of false pretence under $5,000, and two counts of breaching a court order.
