SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, August 06, 2017) – Seventy seven people believed to be suspects in an online fraud have been rounded up in Fiji and flown to China.

It is alleged that the suspects are involved in more than 50 cases involving close to $US 900, 000 that targeted victims in mainland China.

The online news says Chinese police sent a team to Fiji on July 2, and the suspects were arrested on July 18 in raids that destroyed five dens and saw mobile phones, computers, bank cards and other equipment confiscated.
