A Windsor man is charged with fraud for allegedly bilking five victims out of over $1 million.

The Windsor police financial crime unit arrested the man for fraud on Nov. 2, stemming from an investigation that started in March, 2015 after police received several fraud related complaints. 

Police say the investigation revealed that the suspect claimed to be a partner of a business that made financial investments that averaged yields between 10 to 12 per cent. 

The suspect gained the trust of victims and convinced them to invest their money.  Police have identified five victims who collectively gave the suspect over $1 million to invest.

Police say the investigation has shown that the funds were never invested by the suspect. 

Officers are asking anyone with additional information to call.
