A 27-year-old woman will face court on Saturday over an alleged $9 million fraud and money laundering scheme that targeted Thai-Australian communities.
Police will allege in court the woman claimed to be a registered remitter and transferred money on behalf of clients. They will also allege she used social media to advise inflated rates for the transactions.
On Friday morning, police searched a home and unit in Strathfield South and seized 15 pairs of high-end women’s shoes – from luxury brands Gucci and Louis Vuitton, designer handbags, mobile phones and electronic devices.
The woman was arrested and taken to Auburn police station where she was charged with three counts of dishonestly obtaining a financial advantage through deception.
The woman was refused bail and will appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.
