Toronto police are investigating after five people alleged they were victims of rental fraud after connecting with a man on Kijiji.

It was reported that between Oct. 23 and Nov. 28, five people responded to an ad about a condo at 2200 Lake Shore Boulevard West.

The alleged victims claimed they were met by a man living in the unit who claimed to be a real estate agent and were given a tour.

It was reported that the victims all signed rental agreements and handed over first and last months rent.

Police said the man has since fled and didn’t have the right to rent the unit.

The suspect has been identified as Olufemi Abiodun Agunbiade, 33, of Toronto, who also goes by the name “Femi.”

Police said they have interviewed other people who have allegedly fallen victim to this fraud and are urging any others to come forward.
