Toronto Couple Devastated to Find Their Home Fraudulently Sold While Away on Business Trip

If you're a homeowner, you likely take great care in maintaining and protecting your property.

But what would you do if you discovered that someone had fraudulently sold your home without your knowledge or consent? That's exactly what happened to a couple in Toronto recently.

According to a news release from the Toronto police, the homeowners left the country in January 2022 for a business trip. It was during this time that two people, who police are still trying to identify, allegedly impersonated the homeowners and hired a real estate agent to list the property for sale. They were even able to successfully sell the home and new homeowners took possession of the property.

Several months after the sale, the real homeowners returned and were shocked to find out that their home had been sold without their consent. The man and woman wanted in connection with the investigation are believed to have used fake identification to impersonate the homeowners. Their images have been released and they are both wanted in connection with the mortgage fraud investigation.

If you have any information about this case, the Toronto police are asking that you contact them at 416-808-7310. You can also anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477) or

It's truly a nightmare scenario for any homeowner to come home and find out that their property has been fraudulently sold (understatement of the year!). It's important to always keep an eye on your assets and stay vigilant in protecting them. If you're going to be away from home for an extended period of time, consider having a trusted friend or family member check in on your property to ensure everything is in order.
