Man charged over online medical advice

A Sydney man faces numerous fraud charges for allegedly providing dodgy medical advice and treatments for a variety of illnesses on the internet.

The charges follow a raid on a Cecil Hills home on July 23 last year, where officers seized computers and documents.

NSW Police said it launched the investigation following a tip-off from a law enforcement agency in the United States.

A man, 27, from Cecil Hills, was served with a court attendance notice via his solicitor on Monday, police said.

“The court attendance notice is in relation to 16 counts of publishing a false statement with intent to obtain money, knowing that the statement was false,” police said in a statement on Tuesday.

He will appear at Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on June 11.
