Five men in the Kristianstad region are suspected swindling up to 70 businesses in trades involving white goods, worth up to 4.2 million crowns. According to SvD. businesses were conned in to sending goods such as home movie sets, mobile phones, furniture and bubble baths to a previously "clean" company.

Three men have been charged so far and the court proceedings are expected to take a while "due to the amount of documentation that must be presented by the prosecutor", explained SvD. Businesses across Sweden, Norway and Finland have been affected.
