CBSA charge man for creating false job letters for people entering and staying in Canada

The Canada Border Services Agency says a man is facing charges as part of a fraudulent immigration scheme.

The CBSA says 34-year-old Gurpreet Singh allegedly impersonated charities by selling fake job offer letters to people trying to enter or remain in Canada.

He is facing multiple charges including misrepresenting material facts in an immigration matter, counselling others to misrepresent material facts in an immigration matter, committing forgery by knowingly making false employment letters that were used to support immigration applications and dealing forged employment letters as if they were genuine.

The investigation began after a fake job offer was presented a ta port of entry with the alleged offences taking place between June 2016 and November 2018.

The CBSA says it uncovered 34 applications linked to the fraudulent letters.

Singh will appear in court in Saskatoon on Thursday.
