tokio - The Chinese authorities have caught 35 Japanese in the province of Fujian on suspicion of fraud. According to the newspaper, The Nikkei is accused of involvement in telephone scam practices aimed at residents of the Chiba Prefecture in their home country.
An employee of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed the arrests Wednesday, but did not want to enter into detail. According to the newspaper, Japanese who are guilty of telephone fraud are increasingly looking forward to China to stay out of reach of the authorities in their home country.
Chancellors regularly try to hand over elderly people via a telephone call in Japan. In such a case, elderly people receive a phone call from someone who occurs as a child or grandchild, who allegedly needs urgent money. The intended victim is required to transfer the amount of the request or give it to a lender.
