Bail for man extradited in NSW fraud case

A man who faced a Sydney court over alleged fraud offences dating back almost 20 years has been granted bail.

Robert Melvin was extradited to NSW to face Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday after he was arrested in Melbourne on Thursday.

The 44-year-old has been charged with three warrants issued for fraud-related offences and possessing stolen items.

Police allege that in July 1999, mail was redirected from a Liverpool home to a Kings Cross address and a fraudulent loan application - under the name of the Liverpool home's owner - was sent to a bank and approved for $20,000.

It's also alleged that in April 2000, the accused man was in possession of car keys believed to be stolen.

He has been granted conditional bail and was ordered to face the Downing Centre Sydney on May 24.
