A 55-year-old man has been arrested in Invercargill following a Fair Go investigation into replica military medals.
Three customers of the man expressed their concerns to the TV ONE programme in May after bad experiences dealing with the medal conservator who advertised through online auction site Trade Me.
One man told Fair Go he paid $512 for a pair of replica medals to honour his father.
"I decided to rebuild the replica set because I think it's important that on ANZAC Day those medals are worn and shown."
He, along with other customers, never received the medals they paid for or were given unconvincing replicas worth well below the paid price.
Today Invercargill Police arrested and charged the 55-year-old with 24 theft and fraud charges relating to military medals belonging to New Zealand Returned Serviceman and their families.
The man will appear in the Invercargill District Court on Thursday.
