Israel's National Fraud Unit arrested seven Israelis and Americans on Monday morning on suspicion of a large-scale scam against US tax authorities. According to an initial probe, the Israeli suspects fraudulently obtained millions of dollars in tax returns for the American suspects, and deposited the money in local bank accounts. Police will ask the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court to extend the detainees' remand.
