Gift card scam could ruin your relaxing getaway, spa warns

  Gift card scam could ruin your relaxing getaway, spa warns A spa in Chelsea, Que., is warning customers about a gift card scam that could ruin their attempts to find rest and relaxation. Nordik Spa-Nature says it's seeing customers trying to redeem gift cards purchased through buy-and-sell site Kijiji from third parties who obtained them using stolen credit card information.Once those fraudulent transactions are detected and cancelled, however, the gift card is rendered useless. Spa spokesperson Marianne Trotier said sometimes guests show up at the front desk, cards in hand — only to discover they're worthless."We think it's really unfortunate," Trotier said.

The Ryerson Students' Union (RSU) has asked Toronto police to investigate alleged financial mismanagement by former union heads.

The scandal first emerged in Jan. 2019, when an RSU credit card bill with approximately $250,000 in questionable spending was revealed by The Eyeopener, Ryerson's student newspaper.

The spending allegedly took place over an eight-month period dating to May 2018. The bill included purchases at LCBO locations, a shisha lounge, Casino Rama and a credit risk company, The Eyeopener reported.

Former RSU president Ram Ganesh was impeached following the allegations. His replacement, Maklane deWever, announced that PricewaterhouseCoopers would lead a full forensic audit of the expenses in March 2019.

The union was seeking to regain students' trust following the spending scandal, deWever said at the time.

The forensic audit is now complete and the RSU has filed a report with Toronto police.

"We look forward to the Toronto Police Service becoming an important partner in our organization's effort toward delivering justice to the students we represent," the RSU said in a statement.

The RSU says it will provide more details about the forensic audit during a meeting on Feb. 3. It will also be available to view online following that meeting.

Toronto police confirmed to CBC Toronto that a report was filed on Monday, but an investigation has not yet started.
