Misrepresenting Costs Springwater Woman

Police says resident, posing as a paralegal, accepted money without providing services

A 39 year old woman is learning it’s not a good idea to claim to be something you’re not.

The Springwater Township woman faces:

  • Sixteen counts of Fraud Under $5000
  • One count of Fraud Over $5000
  • Four counts of Fail to Comply with Recognizance

Police say the suspect falsely represented herself as a Paralegal and accepted money without providing the services agreed upon.

Police consulted with the Law Society of Ontario that the woman wasn’t licenced to practice law as a paralegal or a lawyer.
