A 28-year-old man was arrested in Thessaloniki on Saturday for fraud over the internet.

Police said the detainee uploaded sale advertisements for high-technology products, including television sets, PCs and cell phones, on websites on the Internet, but failed to send the products to buyers, who deposited the money asked in a bank account, or sent products of substantially smaller value.

A search of the man's work premises turned up two cell phones, a hard disc drive, two credit cars and 1,000 euros in cash from the bogus sales, which were all seized.

The detainee will be led before a local prosecutor.
