Three men have been charged over real estate sales that allegedly netted $6.3 million fraudulently.
A 70-year-old York man and a 43-year-old South Perth man have been charged with six counts of causing a detriment to a person by fraud.
A 45-year-old York man has been charged with four counts causing a detriment to a person by fraud.
The charges relate to the sale of six rural properties from 2008 to 2011, mainly located in the Mid West Region.
It will be alleged the true offer from international investors was not provided to the seller.
A shelf company was allegedly used to purchase the properties at a lesser value and the difference of the initial offer kept from the international investors.
The profits were then allegedly funnelled through a series of shelf companies.
It will be alleged that the value of funds fraudulently obtained is about $6.3 million with the total value of properties sold being about $17 million.
All three will be appearing in the Perth Magistrates Court on October 31.
