McCann helper arrested for fraud

NOV 26, 2009

A suspected fraudster who was once hired to help look for Madeleine McCann has been arrested at a hotel. Kevin Halligen was held for a bill discrepancy when police realised he was wanted by US authorities over an alleged £1.2million fraud. The 48-yearold, from Surrey, tried to con a London law firm, US officials have claimed. The McCanns paid £300,000 to Mr Halligen to help the search for their daughter but ended the contract a year ago.
