A chain of text messages has exposed a man who allegedly faked a rare form of cancer and fleeced $500,000 from the travel company he worked for.
Tony Petrovski has been charged by New South Wales Police with five counts of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception, Daily Telegraph reported.
The father-of-two, who has worked in the travel industry for 24 years, allegedly lied about having cancer and being treated in an Intensive Care Unit for which he requested to use 25 days of sick leave in December 2016.
Police allege Mr Petrovski swindled hundreds of thousands of dollars from his then employer Imperial China Tours in Sydney's CBD where he was reportedly employed for nine years.
