File # 2019-37620

Jordan LUNNY, age 37 of Langley, has been charged with a total of 19 counts of Fraud stemming from a comprehensive investigation by the Langley RCMP. As previously reported, LUNNY was charged on November 26th, 2019 for Fraud and providing misleading receipt after he was alleged to have defrauded Victim(s) of a deposit on a rental property that he did not own or control.

He will appear in Surrey Provincial Court on February 20th.

Original News Release (2019.11.18):

Langley residents may recall a situation in June where a male was defrauding individuals of money as a ‘deposit’ on a rental property that was not actually available for rent.

The complainant had found the rental property through a classified advertisements website and made contact with the property reference to view the property. The victim met him at a nearby coffee shop. He explained there were currently tenants in the residence and with new tenants named, they would be evicted. The complainant provided the first month’s rent. After a few days, the complainant noticed the property was still advertised as available for rent. It was then they realized they had been defrauded.

Investigators were able to identify a possible suspect and subsequently charges have been laid. Jordan LUNNY, a 37 year old male from Langley has been charged with Fraud and providing a misleading receipt. He will next appear in Surrey Provincial Court on November 26th.

It is possible more people have fallen victim to a similar scam and not yet reported the situation to police. We would like to encourage those individuals to come forward and make a full report so investigators can follow through with any possible charges.
