JERUSALEM – Israeli police say they have caught a group of Israeli citizens, including French immigrants, suspected of tricking European companies into sending the group millions of euros in recent months.

Police say the group of eight posed as individuals known to the companies, and convinced company employees to transfer them money. They say the group then tried to hide the funds. Police arrested the group members last week.
