Lithuanian accused of bank fraud in Sydney

AAP logoAAP 6/08/2016

A Lithuanian man has been extradited from Perth to Sydney to face bank fraud charges involving more than $230,000.

The arrest by Australian Federal Police officers last week was done on warrants stemming from NSW Police investigations into suspected fraudulent transactions at a financial institution at Potts Point in Sydney.

Police allege a criminal syndicate fraudulently accessed online bank accounts, transferring more than $230,000 into their own accounts in November and December 2014 before transferring the funds by wire exchange to Eastern Europe.

A 31-year-old Lithuanian man was arrested by AFP officers as he attempted to board a plane to Singapore in Perth and he was extradited to Sydney on Saturday.

He was wanted on 13 counts of dishonestly obtaining property by deception and recklessly dealing with the proceeds of crime.

He has been refused bail to appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday.
