A man accused of buying items bought over the internet with fake bank cheques in Sydney and regional New South Wales is to face the Wollongong Local Court today.
The 40-year-old was arrested at Port Kembla yesterday after Police searched a unit on Wentworth Street and a house on Poplar Avenue at Albion Park Rail.
He is facing 30 fraud charges for paying for cars, jewellery and cameras with fraudulent cheques.
The offences were committed over the past six months in the Sydney metropolitan area, the Blue Mountains and Orange.
Chief Inspector Mark Lavis says Police are expecting that the number of charges will rise.
"And they would be asking anyone who suspects they might have been a victim of a similar fraud to contact the Lake Illawarra Detectives," Chied Inspector Lavis said.
