Notorious conman extradited to NSW

Convicted conman Peter Foster has been extradited to NSW to face charges over an alleged international sports trading scam.

Dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, Foster was escorted straight from the tarmac at Sydney Airport to the back of a police van, and was then taken to Mascot Police Station.

Detectives are expected to interview him and lay charges over his latest scam on Monday night.

The 57-year-old was nabbed while strolling a Port Douglas beach on Thursday.

Hours before his arrest, the scam artist posted about going on a diet and looking for love on social media.

“I am on a quest to lose those 20 kilos before Christmas so I may find a new love to kiss under the mistletoe,” Foster wrote.

Foster has been in and out of jail since 1995 for fraud offences including a multi-million dollar weight-loss scam.

He sparked turmoil for former British prime minister Tony Blair in 2002 when – acting as a financial advisor – he helped Blair’s wife Cherie buy two discounted apartments.
