North Bay man charged with fraud…

A North Bay man has been charged with fraud. It’s alleged that the former call centre worker was taking advantage of his job for personal gain.

Police believe he made changes to cell phone accounts of people known to him, by giving them credits, upgrades, and reversing billing charges. The accused also created fictitious accounts, using his house as the address, to order several cell phones. The phones were then sold online. The estimated loss for the company is over 38-thousand.

The 35-year-old man now faces six charges including:

-One count of fraud over $5000;
-One count of theft of telecommunications over $5000;
-One count of falsification of books and documents;
-One count of possession of property obtained by crime;
