The case involves a 34-year-old male from Parkes facing charges of 10 counts of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception in relation to offering to sell product to a total of seven farmers.

The farmers are located in the Dubbo, Parkes, Yass Valley and Moulamein districts, and while police are yet to hear of any Victorian farmers being affected, they may well be among additional victims.

Investigations started in January.
