A team of officers and staff from Nottinghamshire Police’s fraud and financial investigation unit have today arrested several people in connection with a major fraud investigation.
Nottinghamshire Police were assisted by City of London fraud squad officers, and warrants were executed at eight addresses, which resulted in six people being arrested. Two premises are also being searched in the north west of England.
This is part of an extensive investigation into suspected fraud, where it is alleged that millions of pounds of funds have been obtained through fraudulent mortgages for properties in Nottingham and the surrounding area.
Nottinghamshire Police is continuing to work closely with the financial institutions involved and is also receiving assistance and cooperation from a number of other professional agencies.
