"There's actually two warrants out for her," he added.

Longueuil police had been looking for Oguntoyinbo since February, when she allegedly used a stolen identity to purchase a Mercedes-Benz, register the vehicle, then try to resell it to an unsuspecting buyer.

Earlier this month, Boudreau says, he saw a CBC News investigation that detailed how she is accused of stealing the identities of at least 20 women, creating forged identification documents and racking up big bills, including buying cars and leasing homes in their names.

Boudreau says he has reached out to police in the Toronto area in an effort to see if Oguntoyinbo can be returned to Quebec for prosecution.

Police in Ontario say they continue to investigate Oguntoyinbo in an effort to piece together the scope of her alleged crimes.

The man said he was suspicious because Oguntoyinbo appeared to be wearing a prosthetic baby bump on her stomach to make her appear pregnant. It's not clear if she actually was pregnant.

As a precaution, he texted his girlfriend the licence plate number on the SUV Oguntoyinbo arrived in.

Two days later, he says, Oguntoyinbo returned to buy his car and handed him what appeared to be a BMO bank draft for $24,500. He says Oguntoyinbo also provided a driver's licence so she could transfer the vehicle into her name.

He says he took the bank draft to RBC, where he banks, and a teller accepted it. The funds were credited to his account.

But three days later, he found out RBC had determined the draft was forged. That's when he called police.

Boudreau says he reached out to Ontario's Ministry of Transportation to check the name on the driver's licence Oguntoyinbo is accused of providing to the Mercedes-Benz owner.

"They informed me a colleague from Toronto police was doing an investigation into identity fraud regarding [that] stolen driver's licence," he told CBC News.

Toronto police passed on Oguntoyinbo's name as a possible suspect, he says.

Boudreau says he then obtained a photo of Oguntoyinbo as well as other information.

He says he took the photo to the Mercedes-Benz owner and a Montreal woman Oguntoyinbo is accused of trying to resell the car to.

"They positively identified her in a photo lineup," according to Boudreau.

However, Quebec police couldn't locate Oguntoyinbo to arrest her. She's known to have used numerous aliases, according to police.

RBC partly to blame, car owner says

The Mercedes-Benz owner says the alleged fraud could have been prevented had RBC done a better job identifying the forged bank draft.

"That's their job, that's why we pay fees," he told CBC News.

He also says the bank never informed him the bank draft was fake, and that the $24,500 was being pulled from his account.

"They didn't even tell me. RBC, did not reach out to me in order to inform me that they had taken the money out of my account, I reached out to them," he says, after noticing the money was gone.

RBC spokesman AJ Goodman declined to answer specific questions about what training RBC tellers receive for spotting forged documents.

"When [the car owner] presented the draft he received for the purchase of his vehicle at our branch, we followed our established procedures and took the appropriate actions to protect him and his accounts from fraud." he said in an email to CBC News.

"This included asking him about the source of the funds; advising him to visit a BMO branch right away to have the draft validated; and ultimately placing a four-day hold on the draft to allow time for the draft to clear."

The car owner disputes that.

"No, the employee did not ask me to go and validate the bank draft at BMO," he told CBC News.

He also says a manager at RBC later told him that the teller should never have accepted the draft.
