To victims of fraud.
January 14, 2023 Saturday morning was cloudy with a hint of rain in the afternoon, with a temperature of 9 degrees and an expected high of 15 degrees, a sign that winter is taking a break.
This week we had a very shocking incident. It was one of the saddest events in the history of my family.
A mother became a victim of the Oleore scam.
She received 1 million yen on January 10 and 2 million yen on January 11, totaling 3 million yen. When we asked her about the circumstances of the incident, she told us that her house had been fixed.
When we asked her about the circumstances of the incident, we learned that a man claiming to be me called her on her home landline and asked her for money as a settlement because he had gotten the daughter of the company president pregnant. The mother said her voice sounded different.
When the mother told him that her voice sounded different, he replied, “I have a cold, that’s not important.” She switched to a “I have a cold, that’s not important.
When I asked him to tell me my wife’s name and my children’s names, he replied, “I can’t talk much in a crowd right now, that’s not important.
He was so upset that he was told that he would be in trouble if he did not get the money in a hurry.
The important thing was that I was working during the day and had my cell phone turned off and could not be reached. I wondered whether I should contact my wife, but she was hesitant because of the circumstances (she had gotten someone’s daughter pregnant), and in the end I could not contact her.
After repeated contacts with the scammer, he told her that he knew her home address, which startled her and made her believe him.
On the 11th, she finally went to a coin-operated parking lot by a certain train station, which was designated by the perpetrator, to receive the money, but he told her to come to a different location because it was a one-way street. I was told to come to a different place.
The perpetrator probably confirmed from a distance that there were no police and that he was alone, and led the victim to another location.
At the other place, he gave money to a man in his 30s, who was believed to be the receiver.
On the 12th, I gave him more money, and on the 12th, I received a call at 13:00 and 17:00, but I did not check who was calling me, and at 19:00, my mother called me and I finally realized it was an Oreore scam.
It was too late, I had already handed over a total of 3 million yen in two days. He instructed his mother to write down everything she could remember about the incident on a piece of paper tonight and report it to the police the next day.
The next morning, the mother cooperated with the crime scene investigation and interrogation from 9:00 to 18:40, and had a detective specializing in fraud stand by at her house for two hours to teach her how to answer the phone waiting for the call. The detective also called her eldest son, who was able to learn various things from her. They are also going to work hard on the decoy operation.
The mother said that she usually picked up the landline phone after it went to voicemail, but only on the 10th did the devil get in the way.
According to the detective, most scams with detailed personal information, such as addresses, are done with a “graduation list.” The detective recommended that he change his landline number.
Finally, I am ashamed to say that I would like to briefly introduce my own mother’s character. (Let me share it with you as a trait of someone who might be vulnerable to scamming.)
Born before the war, in her 80s, the eldest of five siblings, and a middle school graduate. She lived in a government housing in Ofuna until I was 3 years old, then she built a house next to her parents’ house and settled there since then. After marriage, she worked as a full-time housewife and did dressmaking and other domestic work until her children were in junior high school, after which she occasionally worked part-time to gain social experience. Since there was no internet in those days, information outside of her own area is of a different dimension.
She is cheerful and talkative. Even now, she still feels like a child at heart and gets upset over the slightest thing. His strength is that he is healthy (his bone density is quite young). He is not an academic person, and his only sources of information are the radio, TV, and chatting with acquaintances, and he is not the type to do research on his own initiative. He has managed to learn how to use a cell phone to some extent with the support of his children, but he has given up on using LINE. She is emotionally dominant and easily influenced, and has lived alone since the death of her husband in 2018.
She is fond of saying, “Girls don’t need to go to college.” ～She is one of those rare people who still talks about the situation in the early postwar period. This is a generation that is in a different dimension of information gathering on the internet.
Her mother has no management experience such as investing, selling or buying big money, and her husband’s retirement fund may be the biggest money management in her life (I imagine). When I met her at her parents’ house, she told me that she had lost several hundred thousand yen, I am not sure how much, after purchasing a risky product recommended by the postal savings office. Such is the attribute of literacy.
I will write about future countermeasures in my next article.
Please, please, please, please pray that there will be no more victims by this criminal.
No bad money will be wasted.
