Police hold man over internet fraud

NSW police say they have cracked the multimillion-dollar, so-called Nigerian internet scam based in Australia, arresting a Sydney man, 39, yesterday.

The scam involved fraudsters sending out spam emails that con people into believing they could claim millions of dollars.

Detectives from the state crime command assets confiscation unit arrested the man during a search of a property in Nyngan, in the NSW central west.

I expect an email any minute now claiming to represent a business associate arrested recently in Sydney.
