Real Estate Fraud. Tips to protect oneself.
Contrarian posted a topic in Provincial PoliticsThe criminal element has moved its aims towards real estate fraud, as recently several stories are trending everywhere in the Canadian Media. The CBC (they have good things once in a while) also ran an article: How to protect yourself from real-estate title fraud. ---> Take steps to protect your identity: Be wary of who you share personal information with. Regularly check credit card reports, bank and credit card statements and report anything irregular. Shred documents containing personal information before placing them in the garbage. Limit mail theft by regularly retrieving mail. Notify the post office, financial institutions and other service providers of your new address when you move. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/prevent-title-insurance-fraud-1.6711615 and the last arrest: Three people have been charged after allegedly impersonating the owners of a Toronto home and selling it while they were out of the country. https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/3-people-charged-after-allegedly-impersonating-homeowners-to-sell-toronto-property-1.6249621 For more information on how to prevent identity theft, visit the following links: Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre Canada Revenue Agency Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada
I'm not talking about Harper, Mulroney, Martin or any one politician. I am talking about any and all politicians who uses their position to conceal felony crimes by having files sealed or investigations derailed, or refusing to fund an inquiry. Because they have authorities to control and manipulate investigative agencies and regulatory bodies and bureaus, they effectively can get away with a lot of graft and corruption. This is especially true when they can hand-pick the heads of these agencies who then run interference for them if their are "irregularites". So, since they have this unique ability to delay and derail investigations, should we not have a special law that eliminates he statute of limitations for their crimes, or at least do not start the clock until they leave office? A good example is the Schreiber scandal. Mulroney could not be criminally prosecuted because the statute of limitations expired. But we did not learn of the accusations for years because he made damn sure everything was so well hidden. I thnk such a law might make these pols realize that their impunity is only temporary and they might actually be held legally responsible for their criminal adventures - eventually. Politicians that are lawyers and know how to manuever the legal system and shop judges are even more likely to get away with super crimes. What do you guys think?
I am not drunk. The Law Society of Upper Canada is NOT a government entity. They are a private corporation. For years they have hidden the criminal acts of their members who pay hefty annual fees (money) for membership. Some call this "protection money". If you file a complaint against a lawyer with the Law Society you are warned not to discuss the complaint with any third party "including the police". Well, if your lawyer committed an assault, rape, extortion, grand theft, or some other crime, why shouldn't you notify the police? According to the police, you will forfeit your rights to mediation if you call in the cops! I call BULLSHIT on the LSUC. If you get ripped off or cheated by a Canadian lawyer, do not waste your time with the Law Society in Canada - file a police report. As you will see in the below links, the Law Society protects its members from public exposure and media scrutiny (because members pay annual dues to the Law Society that total in the millions). The Law Societies in Canada admitted publicly that less than 20% of the complaints they receive are even investigated, and less than 2% of the lawyers are punished in any way. In truth they are not protecting the public from bad lawyers, they are protecting the lawyers from the public. I did not make up these stories here that are shocking... http://projects.thestar.com/broken-trust/ http://www.canlaw.com/law-society/problem.html#.Vfe0U8uwrIU http://www.lawtimesnews.com/200511281146/headline-news/complainants-encouraged-to-contact-police http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...lleged-lawyer-misconduct-kept-quiet-1.2764948 https://lawsocietyofcanada.wordpress.com/tag/complaints/ http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/201...urs_questions_about_law_society_policies.html http://ethicsincanada.com/2015/06/1...-what-we-dont-know-and-why-this-is-a-problem/ http://www.realscam.com/f16/scam-al...our-complaint-against-dishonest-lawyers-4261/ http://lawsocietyofuppercanada.worpress.com http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/briti...lleged-lawyer-misconduct-kept-quiet-1.2764948 http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?...onceals-Crimes-And-Complaints-Against-Lawyers Where there is this much smoke there is surely fire my friends. In this actual complaint filed with the law society, take note that the victim gave overwhelming evidence including a witness list of 19 people, yet the unnamed Law Society investigator did not bother to contact even one of the witnesses nor even the victim, and arbitrarily dismissed the complaint without any explanation, report, nor reasons. http://gilmourlawsocietycomplaint.wordpress.com Many people including myself, wonder if there really was any "investigator" to begin with?!? The lawyer in this particular case was listed as a "member in good standing" even though he was just arrested for child abuse on August 14th, 2001! So if and when you get screwed by a lawyer in Canada file a police report and let the prosecutor and the courts bring the truth out into a public courtroom rather than in some back room of the Law Society.
