Hamilton woman facing fraud charges in connection to Lincoln long-term care home
A Hamilton woman has been arrested in connection to a suspected fraud involving a long-term care home in Lincoln.
In October of 2019, the Niagara Regional Police Central Fraud Unit says they commenced an investigation into suspected fraudulent activities involving a long-term care home in the town of Lincoln.
The investigation revealed that in June of 2019, the facility had entered into a contract with the Director of Divine Home Care, a company providing temporary Personal Support Workers (PSWs).
The Central Fraud Unit Detectives further learned that certain workers provided were not certified Personal Support Workers.
As a result of the investigation, on Thursday (May 28), Niagara police say they arrested 41-year-old Diana Ojesebholo of Hamilton.
Ojesebholo was charged with the alleged offences of:
- Fraud Over $5000
- Uttering a Forged Document (3 Counts)
Ojesebholo has since been released from custody, police say, with a scheduled court date in late July in St. Catharines.
There are no concerns for the well-being of the residents located at the long-term care facilities, police say.
