Toronto police have charged a woman for allegedly fraudulently portraying herself as a nurse and giving Botox injections.

According to police, the woman used Kijiji on July 7 and possibly other websites in the GTA to attract clients.

She allegedly met the clients at their home, business or a hotel and was paid thousands of dollars in cash for the service.

Most recently, police say she was providing injection services in a business in the Kipling Ave. and Queensway area.

Police say it’s not clear if the injected substances were Botox or if the medication was stored safely.

Two victims have sustained adverse reactions and possible long-term damaging effects from the procedure.

Shiva Ashkani, 30, of Brampton, was arrested on August 23 and charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm.

She appeared in court on August 24.

Police believe there may be other victims and are urging anyone who has received this type of treatment from the accused to seek medical care.
