Police have laid eighty charges against three men after they were arrested as part of a wide ranging fraud investigation.

Police will allege that the trio were responsible for porting 100 mobile phone numbers and using the details of about 200 people as a means of making over $1 million.

Officers executed simultaneous search warrants at properties in Kingsford, Rhodes and Waterloo early on Tuesday morning.

Designer clothing, electronic equipment, mobile phones, SIM cards, computers, MDMA tablets, and credit cards as well as $10,000 in cash were found at the properties, police say.

At the Kingsford search, a 28-year-old man was arrested and charged with a number of offences, including 25 counts of dishonestly obtaining property by deception.

The man was refused bail and will face Waverley Local Court on Wednesday.

The two other men were also arrested, one at a property in Waterloo and the other in Rhodes. They were also charged with multiple offences.

Both men are due to face Burwood Local court in June.
