[That may be a scam masquerading as “benefit”! ]

According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, we are cautioning that we are beginning to get suspicious e-mails and telephones trying to find out accounts and PINs by piggybacking on a special fixed amount benefit of 100,000 yen in cash.

Please note that the government or municipality does not send emails to personal computers or smartphones and does not inquire about accounts or PINs by phone regarding special fixed benefits.

If you feel any suspiciousness, please contact Katsushika Police Station (03-3695-0110) or Kameari Police Station (03-3607-0110) .
