In British Columbia, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of a 46-year-old man who has scammed the life savings of yet another unsuspecting woman. Faris Namrud, who goes by several aliases, posed this time as Franco Nemro Loranzo, operator of Miami Home Renovation. Namrud is charged with defrauding Kasandra Harfield, a woman in her 60s, out of $88,000, which was her cash deposit to convert an East Vancouver garage into a home.
This is the eleventh time Namrud has been charged with fraud in 10 years. “I was incredulous. It was mind blowing really, because I did not expect it. I never suspected he would not do the build,” said Harfield. “That was all the money I had for retirement and I was going to be able to live in Vancouver where I wanted to be.”
