Comment on this story
ND BRADLEY 2 (26513551) INLSA Bradley Rogers, 28, has been arrested for his suspected part in an alleged multimillion-pound scam.

Malaga, Spain - A Durban man has been extradited from Spain to the UK to face charges for his suspected involvement in an alleged multimillion-pound scam involving escort and debt-relief websites.

Bradley Rogers, 28, a former Queensburgh Boys’ High pupil, wept as he was charged with two counts of conspiracy to defraud and one count of money-laundering.

He was remanded in custody before his expected joint appearance with Briton Toni Muldoon, 65.

A Suffolk county trading standards officer said: “This has been a complex and lengthy investigation into advanced fee frauds.

“We think we are looking at about 15 000 victims and in the region of £6 million (R79m) has been made from the alleged frauds.”

Muldoon, also extradited from Spain, has been charged with two counts of conspiracy to defraud in relation to about £1.8m.

He is suspected of being the mastermind in a Spanish telesales operation that is said to have duped victims into paying advance fees.

A source has described Rogers as Muldoon’s “right-hand man”.

Rogers began working on Spain’s Costa del Sol for a cruise boat, Caribbean Lady, owned by Muldoon, in 2010.

For the past four years, the former Durban man has been living in southern Spain, where his brother, Clive, is also understood to reside. - Daily News
