Gardaí have arrested a man and a woman as part of an ongoing investigation into 'romance fraud'.
A man based in the east of the country was defrauded of €28,000 on a dating website.
The money was then laundered through the accounts of two people based in Tipperary and Dublin.
The Garda National Economic Crime Bureau led the investigation.
It found that the man's bank account was also used to launder the proceeds of a separate invoice redirect fraud targeted at an Irish-based company.
On Thursday a man, aged in his 20s, was arrested and detained at Tipperary Garda Station. He was later released without charge and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Today a woman, aged in her 40s, was arrested in Dublin and is currently being detained at Finglas Garda Station.
A vehicle was also seized during this arrest operation.
Gardaí say the investigation is ongoing.
