Indictment: French-Israeli con men duped soccer team, French businesses out of millions

French-Israeli dual citizens defrauded a French professional football team and a number of other French businesses, as part of a multi-million Euro scam based in Herzliya, according to an indictment issued in Tel Aviv Sunday.

Two members of the alleged operation, Tomi Bellaiche, 34, and Robert Belhasan, 55, were indicted in the Tel Aviv District Court on Sunday. A further three remain in custody but have not yet been charged.

The alleged con artists would pose as an attorney or an official representing a corporation, and would contact the firms in France and request money transfers for deals that had been falsified.
