ALMOST £170,000 has been seized from the Scottish bank account of fraudster Ahmad Shhade, who persuaded people to transfer money on the false promise of a larger return.

Mr Shhade, who was born in Beirut, but whose current whereabouts are unknown, was involved in a sophisticated advance fee fraud in 2004, conning money out of people in the UK and US.
