[advice to consumers]
* In the Olympics foundations, representative or location, contact information are not clear, and it is strongly doubted that there is not the actual situation of business (ticketing of the Tokyo Olympics). Even if there are ticket application for Tokyo Olympics and telephone about the purchase from person giving Olympics foundations and person concerned, it will prevent you from never accepting for hanging up immediately.
* "Your personal information appears in list of crime group." from person giving Olympics foundations and person concerned on the telephone "In this situation, your bank account is seized." Even if it is said, "you cannot get pension when bank account is seized.", and remittance to delete personal information is sought by the list concerned, you must never accept. Let's talk with consumer life consultation counter (consumer service centers) and the police before remitting.
* Company "must not talk with anyone." in case such as invitation It is trick of fraud to say, "you must not tell to family either.". Let's talk with family and consumer life consultation counter (consumer service centers) before doing contracts.
* Trick to let you send cash by home delivery to personal house is seen, but "individual's house" "sends cash by home delivery." remittance and As this is trick of fraud, please never send.
