MARSEILLE, France (AP) - French league club Marseille was defrauded of about 700,000 euros ($790,000) in an international bank transfer scam last year.

Marseille filed a lawsuit and a preliminary investigation has been opened by a court in Marseille. The club said Friday it has already recovered some of the money that was lost.

Police investigators have yet to identify and arrest the suspects but have established that the false transfer orders were made to various countries, including China.
