A Vietnamese woman has been extradited from Indonesia by Interpol to be investigated for fraud committed back in 2015.

Nguyen Thi Anh Nga, 36, was extradited to Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Airport and handed over to Vietnamese police on Wednesday.

Police from the Mekong Delta’s Dong Thap Province reported Nga borrowed money from several people in 2015 on the grounds that she would use it to buy land and for other purposes. In reality, Nga used the borrowed money to lend it to other people and profit from the resulting interests, according to investigators.

Nga later could not pay back VND3 billion ($127,524), so she fled to Cambodia. She was then charged in Vietnam for the crime of "obtaining property by fraud."

In March, Nga was caught by Indonesian police via an international warrant. Following negotiations between Vietnamese and Indonesian Interpol forces, Nga was extradited back to Ho Chi Minh City.
