Fraud Investigation Arrest

One person has been arrested in connection with the money defrauded from the States of Guernsey.

A small amount of the 2.6 million pounds lost has already been
recovered.

The Guernsey Police Commercial Fraud department has begun an
investigation into how the States were conned out of millions of pounds.

It is after the Treasury and Resources Department received a genuine
looking letter claiming to be from Lagan Construction advising that
their bank account number had changed - and the Department paid the
money to the fraudster instead.

As a result of the investigation an arrest has been made in the UK, and
Guernsey Police are working closely with their counterparts on the
mainland and with the Guernsey Border Agency to establish who is
responsible. «

Islanders are hitting out at the States after they were defrauded of millions of taxpayers money.

Hundreds of people have gone online to talk about their disgust that it
was even possible, for �2.6 million pounds to be stolen from the States.

Two investigations have begun into how the States were conned out of
millions of pounds.

The Guernsey Police Commercial Fraud department has begun an
investigation as well as an internal inquiry into how it could have
happened.
