Dismantled a group specializing in CEO fraud

Spanish National Police officers, in collaboration with Europol, have succeeded in arresting the alleged perpetrator of a Nigerian criminal group, specializing in CEO fraud, at Barajas airport, which has been accused of fraud and money laundering.

The investigation began in November 2018 when, through Europol's official dissemination channels, a complaint was received from a Dutch company that revealed the existence of a criminal group specialising in swindling the CEO.

The investigation has made it possible to judicially block nine bank accounts. In addition, it has resolved the fraud reported for an amount of 122,000 euros and has prevented, with the arrest of the main investigated, that the money defrauded reach higher figures.
