Toronto police are trying to track down a Markham man suspected of defrauding three women of more than $1,000,000 in a romance scam.

It’s alleged Randolph Aquino contacted women on dating websites that included Match.com, Ourtime.com and Chemistry.com.

The victims were misled into believing they were involved in a relationship with a wealthy person who was in trouble in a foreign country and needed cash.

They wired the money into a business account with the name “Tresa Group Ltd.”

Investigators believe Aquino may have fled to the Philippines.

He is described as 46 years old, clean-shaven, five-foot-seven,180 pounds with short hair. He dresses well and describes himself as a professional in the financial services industry.
