Swedish man arrested in Philippines for scam

A 28-year-old Swedish man, Kenneth Tobias Christoffer Moberg who is wanted in his home country for scam and swindling cases, has been arrested in Iloilo, Philippines on 11 February 2019.

Moberg was arrested by agents of the BI Fugitive Search Unit (FSU) and local police at his home in Iloilo and was identified later by Jaime Morente, Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner, on 14 February 2019.

Then, he was transferred to BI’s Bicutan detention Centre in Taguig City for deportation proceedings.

According to a Swedish Court, Moberg had an arrest warrant because he has been involved in swindling cases such as “gross fraud, attempted fraud and unlawful use of identity” in his home country.

The order for Moberg’s arrest was sent to BI by the Bangkok-based Nordic Police and Customs Cooperation. BI was told that Moberg “is the subject of a red notice from Interpol” said Morente.
