A cautionary tale as a senior gets tangled in extortion scam
International scam artists took less than a month to shake down 78-year-old Gulshan Ladhani for more than $50,000.
The Toronto senior gave them everything she had, then in desperation, scrambled to borrow money from three different banks after the threats against her family kept coming.

But after losing all that cash, Ladhani found herself facing a whole other threat: legal action from those same banks demanding repayment, plus interest and fees.
“Where I get the money to pay them?” said Ladhani, who is originally from Uganda.
“I don’t have any money. I don’t work. I’m a senior, an old lady.”
After inquiries by Go Public, one bank has dropped a lawsuit against Ladhani and two others have offered to help.
