A man has been charged over an alleged superannuation scam targeting dozens of people.

It is alleged the 33-year-old was involved in the management of victim's self-managed super funds and was acting as their investment manager.

The Grattan Institute says Australians have more than enough superannuation.

Police allege the investments were sent to overseas locations and were lost without victims being able to access them. Victims were then allegedly asked to provide further funds to recoup the losses.

Following enquiries, officers attached to SA Police Cybercrime Investigation Unit attended a Hills residence yesterday and arrested the man.

He was charged with 69 counts of deception and refused bail, due to appear at Adelaide Magistrates Court today.
