North Bay woman faces fraud charges
A North Bay woman faces charges following a North Bay Police investigation into suspected fraudulent activity related to Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) housing benefits she received over a period of several years.
From December 2007 to December 2013, it is alleged that the accused falsified submissions to the ODSP related to rent, resulting in the ODSP overpaying her over $25,000.
As a result of the investigation, North Bay Police have charged Tanya Jane Spurvey, age 38, with one count of fraud over $5000, five counts of uttering forged document, one count of possession of property obtained by crime, and one count of attempt fraud. She was released from custody with a court date scheduled for November.
