Hamilton couple charged with defrauding ODSP The Hamilton Spectator February 23, 2018
A Hamilton couple is facing criminal charges for allegedly defrauding the Ontario Disability Support Program.
Hamilton police began its investigation after a tip in late 2017 from ODSP workers that a local couple may be defrauding the system.
Police allege the man was receiving disability benefits but was also working and that he failed to report his earnings. ODSP estimates he was overpaid by $130,000.
The police investigation also revealed that he allegedly forged documents for a mortgage application enabling the couple to buy a house valued at more than $500,000.
Rahaman Al Jabri, 48, is charged with fraud over $5,000 and using a forged document.
Shaymae Ali, 38, is charged with fraud over $5,000.
Both are scheduled to appear in court Feb. 26.
