Another example of fake (either counterfeit or altered) passports being used for financial fraud in Australia. At a $300,000.00 fraud, most of which is no doubt gone, it has been a healthy return for someone.
The fact that these passports are not genuine would be detectable on a number of levels, and they could have been challenged before the financial loss.
