The Japan Anti Fraud Organization (JAFO) has received many inquiries from overseas asking “how to report scammer in japan” or “how to report fraud in japan”. If you have been scammed, defrauded or experienced cyber crime in Japan, you can report fraud or cybercrime by filling form at below. After review, your report will be forwarded to Cybercrime Center of Japanese Police Department. This Embassy has recently been inundated by requests from many Kenyans seeking assistance to recover monies allegedly paid to unscrupulous Japanese Companies for the purchase of second hand Motor vehicles. In trying to assist the unfortunate victims, the Mission has uncovered the following:

While Japanese car dealers generally used to be known as trust worthy and reliable this may no longer be true. Unfortunately, the used car export business in Japan has been invaded by some criminals. The global economic difficulties and cut- throat competition in the industry have translated into low profitability and an increase in illegal exports. These include the sale of stolen vehicles, illegally rebuilt units or even re-modeled vehicles. The tendency thrives on the known reputation for excellent quality and reasonable prices associated with Japanese used motor vehicles. Kenya is clearly amongst the targeted and lucrative markets for unscrupulous internet- based motor vehicle fraudsters. This may be informed by the size of the Market, the 8-year Rule, and the demand by citizens for cheaper cars. Dishonest individuals have exploited the internet marketing & advertising model to lure un-suspecting customers from Kenya including senior government officials. Unfortunately, most victims have in the past suffered silently and this lack of publicity has served the fraudsters very well. They are assured of another opportunity to defraud one victim after another without the fear of detection. In trying to track down the bogus used cars exporters, the Mission has found some interesting trends. Firstly, these heartless vendors are hard to trace as they change their telephone numbers immediately they sense danger and will not respond to email enquiries. Since the transactions are mostly transacted via on-line via internet; the fraudsters need no office or even a sale yard. The vehicles displayed on their websites are merely Motor vehicle pictures taken from some legitimate yards or the many vehicle auctions. They then use computer graphics to display their banners over the Fake yards or the cars themselves. Wirth regard to their Bank accounts to which Kenyan victims have wired their monies, the Mission has found that such accounts are phantom accounts opened solely for purposes of fraud for a particular period of time. You cannot easily track down these master criminals because Japanese Banks can accommodate ATM withdrawals of up to 1,000,000 Yen or more than Kshs. 1,000,000). Since they use fake names and identities to open the accounts it’s hardly possible for one to trace them. According to available records, hundreds of Kenyan might have fallen into this trap annually and something must be done urgently to stop the trend. Our engagements with the local police, government departments and the Japan Used Motor Vehicle Exporters Association (JUMVEA) have proved that once paid to the criminals, it is almost impossible to trace the perpetrators due to the legal technicalities here. The Police and related agencies have been categorical that the Japanese law classifies the offence of defrauding a client in a business deal as a civil offence. This means that the Metropolitan Police has no powers of arrest or prosecution for such offences. Such litigation is left to hired professional lawyers. In view of the above, it’s anybody’s guess how many Kenyans can afford to travel to Japan and to hire a lawyer to pursue USD 10,000. Even if the lawyer is hired, what are the chances that the criminal can be found when the only address available on the websites ends up being a public car park, a garden or an empty space? Way Forward In view of the above this mission recommends the following: Potential vehicle importers should be extremely cautious before ordering a Motor vehicle from Japan via internet. All importers should be weary of super bargains or unusually cheap vehicles- for the sweeter the deal the stronger the pain. Before buying a Motor vehicle online, kindly check from http://www.jumvea.or.jp/ if the online vendor is a legally registered business in Japan. Members of the Japan Used Motor Vehicle Exporters Association (JUMVEA) are legally registered & licenced Used Car Dealers, are vetted for legality and credibility and are committed by Association values. In case of any further advice or enquiries, kindly feel free to contact us at the Kenya Embassy- Tokyo using our email address: kenrep@kenyarep-jp.com or trade@kenyarep-jp.com The number of the Internet scams has been increasing all over the world, and Japan isn’t an exception. Fact is, fraud is commonly practiced while making purchases from different sources of long-distance Internet sales. Car businesses have also been suffering from fake, “one day” so-called Japanese Car Dealers. We have analyzed Internet fraud cases, and also learned from our current customers and clients being scammed by other dealers. Japan Partner, as an export company who has been in this business for nearly two decades, would like to provide security to people who are planning to purchase used cars from Japan. Here are some signs of potential fraud that are divided into six large groups: Website contents and company information Make sure that you are contacting with a JAPANESE COMPANY! Avoid contacts with newly established and non-Japanese Car Dealers; Avoid contacting Japanese Dealers whose website requires immediate registration while trying to get access to their website; Make sure that you get comprehensive information on the Japanese Dealer, address, contacts, business history, company profile, information on management and operational structure; A real Japanese Dealer’s website must contain all information on procedures including car search, car purchasing procedures, shipping information and costs and Car Search Engine/ Japanese Car Auction System. Office, address, personnel Make sure that your dealer owns and operates out of an actual office with a clear address, and not just a small room and few people in their staff; Some large companies may have several offices. For example, Japan-Partner Inc. has three offices: a main office in Nagoya city and two field offices in Kanie town and Aichi prefecture; Try to google and check whether Japanese dealer’s address is correct and is not the address of another company or person; Check whether the staff or personnel of the Japanese Dealer are multilingual. Usually, managers working for the Japanese Car Dealer must speak at least two to three languages; Japanese, English and the language of the country the manager in charge of (Russian, German, Kyrgyz etc.); Surprisingly, some managers working for so-called Japanese Car Dealers can’t read Japanese. While choosing a car from the auction, make a phone call and ask to translate auction sheet. If you don’t get a proper translation, you are possibly at the edge of being scammed. Communication Use all possible communication mediums including e-mail, SMS exchanges, phone calls, video conversations, Skype, LINE, WhatsApp, Viber and other applications. Avoid those Dealers who prefer only phone conversations and short mail applications; Do not send your money unless you are convinced that you have chosen the right Japanese Dealer for your purchase; Be careful when you receive too many phone calls and messages with hot/cheap offers and fast shipments; Google search and find the time difference between Japan and your country. If you receive phone calls or messages very early morning or late night, you are possibly dealing with a non-Japanese Car Dealer and potential scammer; Ask the staff/personnel from the Japanese Dealer to show their face, office, infrastructure (land, parking, repair, paint, dismantle and diagnostics shops) by having live video conference by Skype or any other live video application; Be very careful with those Japanese Dealers that avoid video contact and not picking up phone or not responding to your e-mails; Make sure that there are Japanese personnel at the office. Most of scam is coming from companies founded by foreigners. Stock cars and car prices Avoid those Japanese Dealers that offer very cheap prices. In majority of cases, scammers make car prices at the lowest possible prices to attract potential victims; Also avoid those Dealers that give very big discounts and fast shipment; Japanese Car Dealers take as many photos of their cars/stocks as possible, and from different perspectives. If you see stock cars with few photos only, you are possibly looking at a fake and nonexistent car; While choosing cars from the stock ask the dealer to provide additional photos and a copy of Export Certificate; Each car purchased from the Japanese Car Auctions must have an auction sheet, therefore ask your dealer to provide a copy of the auction sheet. Remittances Before you send a deposit either for your car or for an Auction Service make sure that you are wiring your money to the Japanese Bank. If your Car Dealer says to wire money to the bank which is in another country, don’t do it! This is 100% a scam; If your Dealer ask you to send money in other currencies such as Russian Rubles, Pakistani Rupee or other unfamiliar currencies and send to non-Japanese bank, you must not do it. Others Ask your potential Dealer to provide contacts of the Dealer’s current/recent customers from your country for references and personal experience; Check with your potential Dealer whether you can come to Japan and visit the Dealer’s office. If you get a negative answer, the company is a potential scammer.

TTW (Kenya) Hello,Thank you very much for your response. Unfortunately I already lost my money. The company was fraudulent. I realise there is little you can do to stop fraudulent websites that are not even in Japan or pretending to be good people, but maybe you can consider a legal requirement in japan that any bank account holder who receives money in a fraudulent transaction be guilty of assisting in fraud. This may help protect the Japanese Used Car market. While it is a big market and people will always buy cars, imagine the amount of revenue your members miss out when someone like me who had only enough money to buy one car is cheated, and as a result, I will not be buying a car anymore because I have no more money. That money could have benefited a genuine Japan Used Car seller. It is revenue lost for the good people of Japan. If such a law was there, it would make people fearful to open a bank account for fraudulent purposes. It is just a suggestion. But I appreciate you writing to me. Best Regards. WN (Kenya) Dear Sir,Last year in October we were defrauded by Mr.*** of *** company. We reported the case to interpol but nothing has come out of it.

Cars In today’s world, with car prices sky rocketing, it is like a dream for most of the people to buy a brand new car from the showroom. So the next best option is to import used Japanese cars from Japan as they are reliable and has durable in the long run. Japan is a hub when it comes to car exporters regardless of vehicles being new or used. Large number of used vehicles are exported from Japan all around the world. Japanese cars dominate the automobile market by offering the most consistent and convenient cars at very reasonable prices. As the technology is advancing, it is becoming easier to import used cars from Japan. There are numerous reputable and reliable used car exporters in Japan, who help importers buy top quality vehicles at the most economical prices. But with technology comes risks, such as scam and fraud exporters who try to cheat customers to make money. But majority of the exporters are legitimate dealers and Japanese exporters are well known for their service and honesty. Let’s have a look at the most common frauds these days that most of the customers complain. 1- Tampering the odometer: This is a very common fraud where the dealers tamper the odometer to hide the actual mileage of the car, so you end up purchasing a car at a price well above its worth and also suffer losses due to higher maintenance costs. Also, it is a myth that the digital odometer cannot be tampered as it is easy to tamper digital odometers in comparison to analog meters. Every year, billions of dollars are lost by the customers due to odometer fraud and thousands of miles are reduced from the vehicle’s clock, when odometer roll-back takes place. 2- Hiding Engine Problems: Another very common problem with used cars in hiding the faults in the engine. When a used car engine is having issues, diesel oil or diesel fuel is put in the engine to hide faults temporarily as diesel oil is thicker than any regular oil. This is a common problem that mechanics have identified the most. 3- Title Washing: Title washing is a scam which hides the history of a vehicle that’s been salvaged. Salvage titles are assigned to cars that are deemed a total loss by insurance companies. So, some of the dealers rebuilt the vehicle and sell it with a new title. This is known as “Title Washing” as the title of a car has been cleansed by the seller. In order to avoid such scams, always look at the history of the vehicle. Examination of title document is also required to see if it has been physically altered. 4- VIN Cloning: This crime has been newly discovered in which stolen vehicles are sometimes sold with Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) that have been taken out from a similar legally registered vehicle. This can be avoided by matching all the VIN’s on the vehicle. Curbstoning: According to the state law, private citizens are prohibited from selling multiple vehicles. Curbstoning is when a used dealer poses as a private seller and buys and sells vehicles in order to gain profit. Frequently, curbstoners sell vehicles with hidden problems that can affect both the safety and the value of these vehicles. Curbstoners are generally people who buy cheap cars, fix them and sell them to earn swift gain. Misinterpretation Vehicle condition: A lot of times, fraud dealers sell used vehicles to buyers, even though the vehicle has a lot of problems. These fraud dealers deliberately sell defected vehicles just to earn profit. Dealers sell the car “as is”, misinterpreting vehicle’s exact condition. Airbag Fraud: Once the airbags are installed, it is difficult to replace them; however in some cases they are irreplaceable. It is also very difficult to know whether or not airbags are present or not in the vehicle as airbag covers can be replaced on the dashboard, therefore there is no evidence that whether or not airbags are present or not. There are cases where airbags in a used vehicle are non-functional; they are either outdated, or made of badly chosen materials. These are the most common frauds that used vehicle owners experience the most. It is advised that the importer should have complete knowledge regarding the exporter they are dealing with. Always do your research in order to avoid any such scams or frauds when thinking of buying a used car from Japan.

Other companies can supply the same vehicle for 270,000 including theirs. I have heard reports of exporters rolling back odometers (and have been asked to do this), and repairing accident damaged vehicles without mentioning it. In order for most dealers to compete in the market, they have to do these things or risk not being competitive. So if buyers only purchase from the scamming exporters who are dishonest in their services then I am not really surprised that they are being conned themselves. The cost of purchasing from the lowest price exporter has it's down sides and this is one of them.

. Not everyone selling cars in Japan is honest! 7dishonest-car-dealer2I know it may sound unbelievable, but not all car dealers are honest and that goes the same in Japan. They can be dishonest in various ways: about the quality of the car, about the kms of the car, and even perhaps about the very existence of the car. That is why we recommend, strongly, that you buy through the auctions. The auctions give an independent evaluation of the vehicle. The auctions have a tracking system to prove whether the car has had its odometer tampered with. You need no proof of the existence of the vehicle when you see it in an auction. We also recommend, before you purchase your vehicle, that the company you are purchasing from is registered with JUMVEA. 2. Just because an exporter is a member of JUMVEA (Japan Used Motor Vehicle Export Association), it doesn’t guarantee honesty from the exporter. 7logo-jumveaJUMVEA is not a policing institution for the exporters but rather an institution created to help the exporters. They have neither the ability nor the manpower to check on the honesty or integrity of the exporters. 3. Japan recognizes the age of a vehicle, not when it was made but when it was first registered. Sometimes these dates vary by a large degree. 7classicA vehicle may have been made and then be sitting on a dealers yard for a year before it was sold. Once it is sold, then it gets its official age, and that age starts on the date of sale (or more literally “registration”). If date of make is important to you than date of first registration, let us know and we can find the date of make for you before you purchase. 4. Just because a dealer has pictures of a car, even many pictures, doesn’t guarantee he has a car to sell you. 7no-carUnfortunately, we have heard many stories of people buying a car from a dealers stock, transferring money to him, and then never hearing anything afterwards. It does happen. Some of these so called exporters even go to the length of hiring an official office to complete their deception.This is why we recommend purchasing through the auctions, cars YOU can see. 5. There is usually a reason why a car is cheap. 7cheapcarThere is always a reason why a car is cheap. Some real reasons can be “flood history”, “crash repair history” or “adjusted odometer”. Again, purchasing from the auctions protects you from all of the above. You may have to pay market rate for a real vehicle though. 6. Rust is not an issue in Japan for a warrant of fitness, but it may be in your country. 7rustycarBe very careful before purchasing to know that the car is free from rust underneath. Especially cars from the northern areas where salt is put on the roads to melt the snow in winters. 7. Odometers are digital now, so there is no odometer tampering? 7odometer-fraud_00No, don’t believe it. It has just become more difficult to trace tampering. With a diagnostic computer many cars exported from exporters “stock” could have been tampered. Again, buying from an auction guarantees your exporter has not tampered with the odometer.

If you are unable to get around the city or around your town easily, you will have trouble finding work and sticking to a tight schedule. Not only that but when employers look for candidates, they will often try to determine if you have your own method of transportation or not. Being able to drive yourself is a necessity in order to succeed in life. Buying a new car can be a huge investment that not many people are able to afford. Sure, you can finance the car across a large time period, but do you really want to be paying someone for years to come? The financing might not even be zero percent, meaning you will be paying an exorbitant amount more than if you were to buy the car straight up. car history Image Source: Pexels What is the solution to all of this? Used cars. Used cars are great as they still accomplish the job of getting you from point a to point b but in a much cheaper fashion. There are hundreds of models out there as well, allowing you to get the car of your dreams at an extremely low cost. There are some downsides to getting a used car though. You do not know what it has been involved in and how it was treated during its life. You have to know what you are getting into before you purchase the car. Here are some things that you can learn about a used car by looking into its history. Accident History The most important thing that you have to determine when buying a used car is finding out if it has been in an accident at all. You can do this in a variety of ways. First, just inspect the car. Walk around it a few times and look for anything that is out of place or scratched. If some parts are not stock parts, it is an indicator that they have been replaced for some reason. If there is no noticeable damage or changes to the outside of the car, it does not mean that it is accident-free. The experts at CarHistory.online mention that many sellers will make the car appear as it has never been in an accident before. They also say that there are a variety of websites out there that will inform you if the car you are looking at has been in an accident at all. This means you can determine exactly how many accidents the car was in, and where the vehicle was damaged. Why is this important to determine? Car accidents don’t just affect the aesthetics of the car. Things like the suspension or the integrity of the car can be severely damaged in car accidents. Even if things feel like they are driving fine, there might be underlying problems that will creep up on you quickly. This means that you will be paying thousands of dollars in repair costs trying to get your used car to work properly. As a car owner, you will quickly find yourself in a nightmare as you never know if your car is going to work properly or not. Always check the history of the car and see how many accidents it has been in before purchasing. Mileage Mileage plays another huge part when determining the price of a used car and seeing if it is worth buying. Typically speaking, the more mileage on a car, the shorter its lifespan will be with you. Just like above, cars with tons of mileage will need plenty of repairs soon as the car will have been pushed to its limit. If there is plenty of mileage, the owner should be looking to charge much less for the vehicle. As a potential buyer, ensure that you are always checking the mileage on the car before purchasing so you can get an idea of how much longer the car is going to last on the road. car key Image Source: Pexels Product Recalls Every now and then manufacturers release cars that are defective and have to be called back to the lot. While some people bring the car back to get fixed, some keep it and don’t get it updated. By checking out the car model online, you can see if there have been any recalls or safety issues surrounding this car. This is information that typically would not be available to you in person at the sale, but can carry the most weight when it comes to buying. Would you want to buy a car that has been deemed not safe by the manufacturer who made it? The last thing you want is to spend thousands of dollars and then learn about the disaster of a purchase you just made. It is often hard to get someone to buy back their used car or give you the full amount that you paid back. By failing to do your research, you are putting yourself in this position. Don’t forget to check if the car you are purchasing has any manufacturer defects or product recalls. Previous Owner’s Checking the history of a car online can also show how many people have owned the car and through how many hands it has passed. While you might not think this is important, it can reveal a lot of hidden information. If a car has been sold several times, you have to ask why is that the case? Are these people who just want to get another car, or is there an underlying problem? You have to be very suspicious if the car has been owned by many people. By following all of these tips, you should be able to make a good and fair appraisal of a used car that you are looking to purchase. Never buy without getting an idea of its history and how it has been driven. If there are any defects, consider if that is something that you want to put your money into. If the car is everything that you wanted, congratulations on finding a great car and saving money while doing so.
