Two men have been arrested by police in Sydney in connection with the McDonald’s EFTPOS skimming scam that has so far raided West Australian bank accounts of more than $5 million.

The WA Police major fraud squad said the breakthrough in the investigation was achieved through cooperation with national and international law enforcement agencies.

Both men have been charged with conspiracy to defraud over the scam, which targeted EFTPOS machines at WA McDonald’s restaurants in October.
