  • Introduction to Video Content
  • A woman from Vaughan, Ontario, was surprised to receive a bill from Highway 407 for three trips taken in April. However, upon checking her calendar, she realized that she was on vacation and not in the city at the time. It was later revealed that her license plate had been cloned, leading to fraudulent use of her plate on another vehicle.
    The woman, Obiama Dikea Vaughan, was shocked to see a bill for multiple trips on Highway 407 when she returned home. Confused and certain that she had not used the highway, Dikea checked her schedule and discovered that she was out of town during that period. The bill indicated that the trips had taken place, which further confirmed her suspicion of fraudulent activity.
    Dikea's concerns went beyond the monetary aspect; she was certain that she had not used the highway and decided to inform Highway 407 about the situation. In response, the company sent her pictures of a car that looked like hers, complete with her license plate number. However, upon closer inspection, Dikea noticed that the vehicle in the photo was actually a different year and had different features. It became evident that someone had duplicated her license plates and placed them on a similar-looking vehicle, intending to deceive and impersonate her.
    Upon investigation, Highway 407 acknowledged that this was a case of fraud, where the person responsible had duplicated Dikea's license plate number. The company assured CTV News that they would reverse the charges for customers if they can confirm criminal misuse of their license plate.
    This incident serves as a reminder to always be vigilant and report any suspicious activity or discrepancies immediately. Cloning license plates has become a method employed by criminals to avoid payment and engage in illicit activities while putting innocent victims at risk. By promptly reporting such incidents, individuals can help authorities catch those responsible and prevent further fraudulent acts.
  • Subtitles section
  • If you drive on the 407, you can expect to get a bill with toll charges for using the highway.
  • But a woman from Vaughan was shocked to get a bill for multiple trips, even though she was sure she never used the highway.
  • Pat Foran has our story on Consumer Alert, Pat.
  • Nathan and Michelle, the woman was surprised to get a bill from the 407 for three trips taken in April.
  • But when she checked her calendar, she realized she wasn't even in the city at the time.
  • It turned out to be fraud.
  • Someone had copied her license plate.
  • I just came back and I saw a bill at my door and I picked it up and it says 407.
  • Obiama Dikea Vaughan says she was baffled why she would get a bill from the 407 for three trips taken in April.
  • When she checked her schedule, she noticed she was on vacation at the time.
  • The bill said the trips took place.
  • This doesn't seem right.
  • I wasn't around.
  • I wasn't in the city.
  • And this was like multiple crossings.
  • The bill was for $61, but for Dikea wasn't just about the money.
  • She was positive she didn't use the highway for the trips, she told the 407.
  • So they sent her a photo of a car that looked like hers with her license plate number.
  • They sent me the pictures and I was shocked to see that it was exactly my plate number.
  • But what Dikea also noticed was that while the car was similar to hers, it was actually a different year with different features.
  • Someone had duplicated her license plates and put them on a vehicle very similar to hers.
  • The suspect vehicle was in fact trying to impersonate the victim's vehicle.
  • 407 ETR told CTV News this appears to be a case of fraud where the person's license plate number was duplicated.
  • 407 ETR will always reverse charges for customers if we can confirm the criminal misuse of their license plate.
  • There are other issues with license plates peeling, fading and even being hidden with remote control devices.
  • Police say drivers have also been caught altering their plates to avoid red light cameras and toll charges.
  • We have seen it in the past and we certainly don't want this to continue.
  • And those drivers that do that will certainly be held accountable under the law.
  • After the 407 investigated, Dikea was told she didn't have to pay the bill.
  • She did have to change her license plates and called the situation frustrating.
  • This is not my fault that this happened.
  • So again, it's costing me money, it's costing me time, it's costing me grief.
  • And if you get a 407 bill and you're sure you didn't use the highway, you should contact the 407.
  • If your plates have been duplicated, call the police and report them as lost or stolen and return them to the Ministry of Transportation.
  • On your side, I'm Pat Foran.
