                       All subjects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

On April 22 2016 a male and female entered a retail store selling quality jewellery in the downtown Toronto, ON area.  A high end item was purchased using a credit card for payment.  It was subsequently determined that the card used by the female (shown upper left) was fraudulent.

On May 24 2016 a male and female entered a retail jewellery store located on Cornwall Road in Oakville, ON.  A high end watch was selected and purchased using a credit card for payment.  Again, it was subsequently determined that the card used by the subjects (upper middle) was fraudulent.

In both cases the subjects are of Asian descent and between 20 and 30 years of age.  Both subjects speak fluent English.  The male (upper left) is approximately 5'11" tall.  The female does not remove her sunglasses while in the store.

It has been suggested that the female subject shown above right (Reference JVC Bulletin 2015-2011) may be the same female shown in the two adjacent photos above, Vancouver Police (604) 717-3321, File #15-177682 and Calgary Police Service (403) 266-1234, File #15-401645.
