Former bank employee arrested in fraud investigation

Police investigating a suspected bogus investment and currency scheme have arrested a former bank employee.

The 39-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of fraud and money laundering offences. She was later released on bail.

It is believed the scheme may have promised clients an unrealistic return.

The offences are thought to have occurred mainly in the Andersonstown area of west Belfast, but may also have taken place across Northern Ireland.
