2 mn euro worth computer crime

Date: July 28, 2006

Fraudulent activity on the internet worth 2 million euros has been uncovered by the postal police of Catania, which has arrested six people on the arrest warrant issued by the preliminary investigative judge.

Those under investigation must answer to charges of criminal association concerning falsification, fraud and undue influence on persons not compos mentis.

The inquiry involved some sales sites on-line, managed by those arrested, who did not have any official residence: the latter complicated the work of investigators, forcing them to take four years to reconstruct the swindle.

The investigation started in Catania but it is where the first reports for fraud were registered, but victims have also been found in Palermo, Rome, Milan, Turin, Ancona, Reggio Calabria and other cities.
