LCBO sues former staffer and his bouncy castle operator friend over alleged fake diplomat fraud
Earlier this year, we learned about former LCBO staffer Francois Agostini, who allegedly got rich by forging fake sales of booze to diplomats who didn’t actually exist. Now, the LCBO is suing Agostini for $2 million, claiming that he made off with $1.6 million worth of cash and booze between 2005 and 2011. Also implicated in this whole mess is Andrea Smallwood, a bouncy castle operator (no, really) who allegedly aided Agostini in his scam by posing as a Ukrainian diplomat. According to the Post, the LCBO is reportedly trying to seize Smallwood’s business. So be forewarned: if you steal from the LCBO, they might just come after you for everything you’ve got, whether it’s millions of dollars or, you know, bouncy castles.

This is so typical. The LCBO allows this to go on and then goes after the women this pondscum befriended to the bars, restaurants, pubs that he frequented. How does this happen? Used to see this guy at all of the high end restaurants and typically, he looks homeless and then would go on and on how he was “head of the lcbo” Right, a guy with a rat tail down to his waist and looked like a biker is employed by the LCBO and stealing from them and they have no idea?!? I would bet anything there were other employees of LCBO involved in this and probably the management.
Does anyone else wonder why booze prices are so high when events like this go on inside the LCBO
First Healthcare, then Orng Air and now this? How much more do we, the taxpayer, not even know about
Our government is a complete joke and the fact they are pinning it on women this scammer lied to is absolutely horrific.
Disgusted to have to pay taxes today….
