Organized crime officers in Greece are investigating what is suspected to be the biggest financial crimes case in the annals of Greek history, worth an estimated US$350 million (307 million euros).

Five people have already been arrested in Attica and the Peloponnese in connection to a suspected international pyramid scheme that scammed millions of euros from Greek and Ukrainian investors, including a Greek broker.

Cases are also being built against another 25 suspected members of the racket.
