Arrest warrants issued for couple police allege defrauded clients of life savings

Toronto police have issued arrest warrants for a husband-and-wife team they allege defrauded some clients of their life savings as part of an investment firm they ran in Scarborough.

According to police, the pair ran a financial investment and mortgage brokerage company called Keystone Financial Services, which was located in the Warden Avenue and Sheppard Avenue East area, between 2014 and 2016.

Over that time period, the couple "encouraged clients to invest funds in various financial schemes that have since been shown to be fake," police allege in a news release.

Some of the investors lost their life savings, police said.

One investor called police after trying to call the Keystone offices and learning that the company had shut down.

Police have issued arrest warrants for:

- Khurt Comrie, 40

- Collett Comrie, 44

They are wanted on a charge of fraud over $5,000. Their last known address was in Pickering, Ont., police said.

Police are asking anyone who thinks they may be a victim or who may have information to contact Det.-Const. Stewart Fleming at 416-808-7318 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS.
