Gardaí have arrested three men during search operations in Navan and West Dublin today.

The arrests are linked to an ongoing investigation relating to suspected online romance and investment fraud.

A number of devices were also seized for examination during today’s operation.

It’s understood one of the victims in the case was convinced to transfer large sums of cash to accounts in Ireland, Turkey, Dubai and Vietnam over a nine month period, having met with fraudsters online via a dating site.
