Approximately 20 million yen suspected of fraud for oleore fraud Arrested four boys including former high school students October 20, 12:31
Four people, including former students who were attending a public high school at the time, were arrested by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department for deceiving about 20 million yen in cash on a phone fraud that pretended to be their son.
A total of four people were arrested: an 18-year-old boy who attended Saitama Prefectural High School, two 16-year-old boys who attended Tokyo Metropolitan High School, and a 17-year-old boy who was unemployed.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, in December last year, the four called to the home of a couple in their 80s living in Shizuoka prefecture, pretending to be their son, and said, "I dropped a checkbook worth 10 million yen." There is a suspicion that he cheated about 20 million yen in cash 20 times.
The four were divided into roles, with a former student at a prefectural high school acting as a director, two former students at a metropolitan high school acting as cash receivers and withdrawals, and an unemployed boy acting as a recruiter.
According to the investigation, a former student of a prefectural high school out of the four has reserved approval or disapproval, saying "I will not speak anything."
In addition, the two metropolitan high schools have already been probated.
The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the details of the situation, assuming that there are other members who have called.
