Alleged Fraudulently

A 27-year-old man has been charged with allegedly fraudulently obtaining more than $38,000 from six people between August 2021 to August 2022.

The Chief of Intelligence and Investigations Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sakeo Raikaci said the accused whilst employed as a sales executive at car and parts dealership, is alleged to have generated Sales and Purchase Agreements to six customers as an official receipt to confirm payment had been made.

ACP Raikaci said the 27-year-old then deleted the same Sales and Purchase Agreement from company records.

Company executives discovered the alleged crime after receiving numerous calls from customers regarding the non-delivery of goods.

The Chief of Investigations said officers from the Criminal Investigations Department arrested the accused at the Nadi International Airport while he was waiting for an overseas flight.

The accused has been charged with six counts of theft.
