Торонтская полиция и их смежники (HLS, RCMP, пограничники и полиция прилежащих к нам регионов) накрыли шайку жуликов, торговавших всякими подделками, в том числе токенами (жетонами) для подземки. На общую сумму шесть с половиной миллионов. Расследование началось еще в августе.

Токены шли из Китая в палках для штор:

Вроде говорят, что сквозь автомат с таким токеном не пройти, но если опускать в ящичек, где сиидит кассир, то кто ж там будет смотреть? Как следствие, они циркулируют.

Двенадцать человек арестованы, состав многонациональный, в основном китайцы, но есть также Igor Stepanov, 48, of Richmond Hill и Bohdan Shunevych, 32, of Mississauga. Не стоят соотечественники в стороне.

Пресс-релиз (в PDF):
In August 2013, the Toronto Police Financial Crimes Unit commenced an investigation
dubbed "Project PACE" (Partners Against Counterfeiting Everywhere) which spanned across
Canada and the United States.

The joint force operation, involving law enforcement and private industry, targeted businesses
in Toronto, Peel Region, York Region, Durham Region, South Simcoe and Windsor. These
businesses are alleged to be manufacturing and selling counterfeit products.
Law enforcement is fully aware that counterfeit items fund international organized crime and
terrorist groups.
During the holiday season, the Toronto Police Service and its partners want to inform
consumers of the potentially high risks of buying counterfeit product. The majority of
customers are unaware they are purchasing low-cost, unreliable, fake goods that could pose
serious health and safety risks to the public.
Search warrants resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of counterfeit luxury goods,
fraudulent cosmetics, clothing, electronics, prescription drugs and TTC tokens that valued
over $6.5 million.
The success of the project is attributed to the combined efforts of multiple law enforcement
agencies teaming up with the private sector.
