A MAN was arrested for fraud in Bogota, Colombia, following a police investigation in Palma.
The suspected Colombian fraudster, who is alleged to have operated worldwide, had reportedly assumed the identity of another person and used false details to transfer up to €48,436 from an account with the Bank of America, based in Miami, to his own.
A complaint made in Caracas, Venezuela, reached the Police in the Balearic Islands who were able to determine the identity of the account holder, who was living between Miami and Bogota. The combined police effort, led by Interpol, and experts from the Bank of America in Spain, resulted in his arrest before he was able to travel to Miami, based on a warrant issued by Mallorca judge Jose Castro. The judge has also requested his extradition to Spain and he is expected to arrive next month for trial.
