“I accompany investors in their projects to give them the best advice,” he assures us in particular in an interview during “Millionaires Week” in a tropical destination.

However, Powell found himself in the sights of an OACIQ trustee for unknowingly imitating a childhood friend’s signature.

In early July, he pleaded guilty to one count that he instead signed six documents in 2018 and 2019.

According to the summary of facts, Powell signed this friend during the acquisition of land allowing the construction of an income building in Boisbriand.

The Guardian’s investigation into the purchase offer revealed that only his friend’s name appeared, but that it was Powell who actually signed. According to a report, Powell also acted as an intermediary in the deal.

In 2019, a friend of Powell said he realized his signature was forged after receiving an official notice from a company. He confirmed that he was not aware of the situation.

The syndicate stressed that “putting a false signature is equivalent to creating false documents.”

“These are inherently serious crimes. The Disciplinary Committee ruled that this type of disgraceful act undermines the confidence the public should have in members of the profession.

David Powell’s license has been suspended for 30 days.

The latter on his part told us that he had a power of attorney to sign in place of his friend.
