A BRITISH man has appeared before magistrates in the UK charged with two counts of conspiracy to defraud.

Anthony Muldoon, 65, is being held in connection with an alleged €7.4 million internet escort and debt elimination scam said to involve 15,000 victims in the UK.

The timeshare entrepreneur was picked up in Fuengirola following a long-running investigation by police and trading standards in Suffolk.

The Briton is the third person to be charged in the case, along with a 59-year-old Scottish woman and 28-year-old man from South Africa, after all three were arrested in Spain under European Arrest Warrants.

Muldoon has been remanded in custody until June 28 when he will appear before Ipswich Crown Court.
