A NSW woman is facing more than 130 fraud charges, accused of being part of a criminal syndicate that used a SIM card swap scam to steal people's identity.
In January 2018, State Crime Command's Financial Crimes Squad established Strike Force Naiooka to investigate identity fraud offences by a criminal syndicate in Sydney's inner west from 2016 to 2018.
Detectives arrested a 37-year-old man in Redfern in November 2018 and he remains before the courts facing 162 fraud-related charges.
After further investigations, strike force investigators arrested a 32-year-old woman in Tamworth on Monday afternoon.
She was charged with 132 fraud-related offences involving identity theft and dishonestly obtaining property by deception and dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception.
Police say the woman was involved in a criminal syndicate that dishonestly obtained information on people through a mobile SIM card swap scam and used it for financial benefit.
The woman was refused bail to appear in Tamworth Local Court on Wednesday.
