The frauds and scams using Japanese name, Japanese address, and Japanese Bank Account are increasing at high pace. Japan Trade Organization (JTO) would like to alert all companies and personals to be smart and confirm about all companies before any transaction. Be extra careful as chances of recovery after sending money to fraudster are almost zero. In almost all fraud cases, criminals immediately fled out of Japan after receiving money from victim.
How to Prevent Fraud in Japan:
Take maximum steps to research a company or person in Japan before sending the money.
Check if company or person in Japan asking you to send money has passed scrutiny of JCTO and is verified by “Japan Company Trust Organization” or not.
Where to report fraud complaint in Japan:
If you are fraud victim from a company or person in Japan, report your case to Fraud Report Center of “Japan Anti Fraud Organization“.
Chances of recovery:
As mentioned earlier, chances of recovery of defrauded money are very low, as most fraudsters immediately fled out from Japan after getting money from the victim.
