“We have blocked Pavillon des inventors du Québec and we intend to confiscate it as criminal proceeds,” Christian Warin said in a Montreal court on Tuesday.
The 64-year-old groom was a Charlotte who led the Confederation of Inventors in Quebec. From 2015 to 2018, without knowing anything about the process, he tricked inventors into paying dollars to help him file a patent.
But with his attractive website, it was really just an empty shell, able to win the trust of people who could pay thousands of dollars to get help from a fraudster.

However, the groom’s fraud paid off. In fact, he had built himself a luxurious $ 1.3 million pavilion, which he rented on the Airbnb platform for a hefty price.

“We are going to hear the sentence of imprisonment [soit de plus de deux ans] Nicholas Amerlon added.
The next hearing is set for May.
