Man and woman arrested over €28k 'romance fraud'

A man was conned out of the cash on a dating website.

GARDAÍ HAVE ARRESTED two people as part of an ongoing investigation into romance fraud.

Officers launched an investigation after it was established that a man based in the east of the country was defrauded €28,000 on a dating website.

The money was laundered through the accounts of two people based in Tipperary and Dublin.

The man’s bank account was also used to launder the proceeds of a separate invoice redirect fraud, perpetrated upon an Irish-based company.

Last Thursday, a man in his 20s was arrested and detained under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 in Tipperary Garda Station. He was later released without charge and a file will be prepared for the DPP.

This morning, a woman in her 40s was arrested in Dublin. She is being held at Finglas garda station.
