A man has been extradited to NSW from Western Australia after being accused of defrauding a vulnerable man of more than $400,000.

In June 2020, NSW detectives from Cumberland Police Area Command began investigating reports that a 58-year-old man had been defrauded with a large sum of money.

According to police, the man, who has an intellectual disability, had befriended a colleague who took him to a bank several times between November 2014 and January 2016 and forced him to withdraw money.

Realizing that more than $435,000 had been debited from his account in early 2020, the man went to the police.

Last month, detectives received a warrant for the arrest of a 52-year-old man living in WA.

With the help of WA Police, the man was arrested Monday at a house in the Perth suburb of Kelmscott, and NSW Police requested his extradition.

The 52-year-old man will appear at the Downing Center Local Court on Thursday (pictured)
