A 30-year-old woman from the Sedgley area of Dudley, suspected of defrauding over 100 brides-to-be through an online wedding service company, has been arrested by police today.
West Midlands Police have arrested the woman following a number of complaints from customers who allegedly purchased goods from an online wedding service that were never delivered.
And when customers tried to contact the company, which advertised its services through Facebook, it is claimed that their calls and communications would go unanswered.
Trading Standards and police have launched an investigation after the disgruntled brides complained through Action Fraud, the new online fraud investigation service.
Police and Trading Standards have interviewed the woman and she has now been bailed until January whilst further enquiries are made.
Investigators from the force’s economic crime unit are appealing to anyone who think they may have been a victim to contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
