A Sydney provider of IT services was yesterday arrested by NSW Police over $220,000 in allegedly fraudulent transactions with a union.
The state police force has charged the 44-year-old Surry Hills man with 10 counts of fraud offences, as well as participating in a criminal group and receiving benefits from the group.
Police said the man provided IT services to the state branch of an unnamed national union.
They will allege in court that a number of transactions between the IT services provider and the union branch had been identified as fraudulent, to a total of more $220,000.
Police also charged a 45-year old man and 35-year old woman last Thursday as part of the same investigation.
The IT services provider was granted conditional bail.
He will face the Downing Centre Local Court on December 22.
