S. Korea arrests Indonesian for Japan tsunami fraud
Police have also asked Interpol to arrest three other suspects -- a 33-year-old Malaysian woman, a Nigerian and a man thought to be American.
The Malaysian last year sent an email to a South Korean man through a pen pal site, claiming she worked for a bank in her country.
She said a Japanese client with a $4.2-million deposit at the bank had been killed in the disaster, along with his whole family.
The woman suggested that the South Korean claim the money by posing as a relative of the deceased, and share it with her.
Police said the woman then obtained 110 million won ($96,000) from the Korean, claiming this was needed to forge bank and family documents.
But the Korean, impatient at a lack of progress, reported the affair to South Korean police in April this year.
He invited an Indonesian go-between in the scam, a 33-year-old woman, to Seoul with the promise of more money, and police arrested her on July 4.
"This is the first time that we arrested someone in a fraud taking advantage of Japan's tsunami disaster, but we are getting more reports about similar attempts these days," Kim Gyoung-Hee, a police investigator, told AFP.
He said the Korean would not be arrested since he had not committed a crime.
Some 19,000 people died after the disaster on March 11, 2011.
