Man allegedly siphoned $400,000 from woman’s bank account

A Sydney man has been arrested and charged with siphoning $400,000 out of a woman’s bank account.

Police say they received information relating to the allegedly fraudulent transactions against a 42-year-old woman back at the start of May.

Following investigations, officers stopped and arrested a 36-year-old man in a car on Leacocks Lane in Casual on Friday morning.


He was taken to Liverpool Police Station where he was interviewed and subsequently charged with dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception and driving without a licence.

He was refused bail to appear before Liverpool Local Court today.
