Recently a friend of mine was on series of TV program in Japan this week, explaining about the romance scams. I am working with her as a group in Japan.
Japanese people are still ignorant about this kind of scam, and some are reluctant about believing that the scammers are from Africa or South Asia.
The arrest news from Malaysia and Thailand proved that these types of scams are usually run by Nigerians and Ghanaians. But this is not sufficient to convince the media in Japan.
I wish if I could find reliable sources with fact based and with numerical data. Where can I find?
