Invested man The transfer of the promise is delayed from 2 years after the purchase

A man in his thirties in Aichi Prefecture, who had invested more than 11 million yen in conjunction with "Nishiyama Farm," responded to NHK's interview.



Five years ago, a man introduced to an acquaintance explained that Nishiyama Farm's business could be "worked as a side business."



A product such as fruits specified by Nishiyama Farm is purchased with a credit card, the company sells the product overseas, and the company makes a few percent profit on the purchase price of the product from the company to the customer by the card withdrawal date of the next month. The amount of money added was to be paid.



I thought that men could do it without the funds to pay for it, so I bought a product worth 300,000 yen with a credit card.



The following month, the amount was paid as explained, so he decided to continue purchasing.



The man said, "Payment continued smoothly for about two years. A search on the Internet revealed a real farm, and the pamphlet explained that the business was proceeding smoothly, so I was relieved to believe in Nishiyama Farm. It was a material, "he said at the time.



However, about two years after I started making the purchase, the transfer of the promise started to be delayed.



Even so, as I continued to purchase, Nishiyama Farm contacted me about the repayment plan.

Even after that, the money paid will not be refunded, and the amount of damage to men is said to be about 11 million yen.



The man said, "I was working with the idea of ​​supporting the business while doing a side job, but as a result, only the debt remained. I would like Nishiyama Farm to repay it properly."
