419 Scam – "Yokozuna Financial Consultancy / Nera Wang"
"Yokozuna Financial Consultancy / Nera Wang" is one variant of the "dead customer" scam. The scammers claim to be a lawyer or bank employee whose former client died leaving millions of dollars in a bank account. The conmen ask for help in defrauding their government out of an inheritance.
You are asked to assist in moving the money out of country by posing as a relative. You are promised a large percentage of that amount for telling a lie. This is a scam and whoever falles for it will never see a cent from that (non-existent) bank account. Instead he/she will be bilked for legal fees / "inheritance tax" / various documents / "bribes to officials", etc. It's a classic advance fee fraud.
Dont't trust any images of passports, bank documents, government certificates, etc. presented to you by the scammers. These are all fake.

WHY INVEST IN JAPAN ?
There is tremendous investment opportunity in Japan, provided one takes the time to dig through the superficial media hype and colored analyses. While there is no shortage of accounts of what is happening in Japan, there is a dearth of relevant facts, considered interpretations, and clear-headed analysis of developments and events that answer key questions about your investments in Japan. Moreover, even in the age of instant communications and the Internet, the majority of information that is being discounted in Japan's financial markets is simply not available in English. We try to solve these problems with our vast knowledge and 20 years experience.
