A former West Ham player has been charged with fraud and money laundering.
Blair Turgott is due to appear in court later this month following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police's fraud and linked crime online unit.
The 22-year-old, of Ravensmead Road in Bromley, faces one count of fraud by false representation and one count of converting criminal property.
Turgott made one first-team appearance for the Hammers, in the FA Cup defeat to Nottingham Forest in January 2014.
The winger had risen through the youth ranks at the club and also had loan spells at Colchester United and Bradford City.
He left West Ham to join Coventry City and spent last season with Leyton Orient. Turgott played for Bromley in the National League this season.
He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London on April 28.
