Three men are facing charges after they fraudulently obtained credit cards using personal information that was stolen from a number of victims.
Officers from the Toronto Police Service Financial Crimes unit say they began an investigation into the alleged fraud in August.
According to police, the suspects stole personal data from their victims and then used the data to apply for credit cards.
Those credit cards were then used to make a number of purchases.
All three suspects were arrested on Oct. 14.

Kelly Lyndon Kingsley, 47, of Mississauga, is charged with four offences, including fraud under 5,000.
Ryan Nuez, 28, of Toronto, is charged with two offences, including fraud under 5,000.
Police say they are concerned that there may be other victims who have not yet come forward.
