A KOREAN national was stopped from boarding a plane at Sydney Airport on Saturday (October 4) after he allegedly took more than $360,000 from a woman’s bank account.
Police begun investigations into the 27-year-old in March when a woman, who is now 89, reported multiple suspicious transactions from her bank account.
On Saturday, police were notified that the man, who had been in Australia on a working visa, was booked on a flight to South Korea. A warrant was issued, and the man was arrested about 8.40pm that evening.
He extradited from NSW yesterday (October 6) and will face 27 charges of obtaining property by deception at the ACT Magistrates Court on fraud charges.
Police will allege a total of $363,020 was taken from the victim.
INDIGENOUS leader JULIE TONGS writes that we have to face the awful truth – the worst-performing government in Australia, when it comes to locking up Aboriginal peoples, is the ACT government. And enough is enough.
