Protection against Fraud and Scams
Japan Partner helping to fight fraud
Japan Partner Inc. actively supports initiatives aimed at fighting internet fraud and scams.
We have helped individuals defrauded by internet scams on several occasions to reclaim their money by referring them to the appropriate law enforcement bodies here in Japan and also abroad.
While there are ways to reclaim funds if you have been defrauded, you should think twice before parting with your money. Before making any transfers to a company that you have never dealt with before you should ascertain that you are dealing with a legitimate business.
There are good reasons why many leading banks encourage their clients to be extra careful when dealing with an internet business and very often require a reconfirmation before carrying out any remittance request.
It is of course best to prevent becoming a victim of fraud in the first place.
How can you know if a company is "real"?
There are a number of things you can do to find out if a used vehicle exporter located in Japan is a "real" business and reliable:
Japan Partner is doing all possible to prevent and stop Internet Fraud related crimes. In the past we successfully terminated attempts of the criminals to take advantage of internet media with the purpose of deceiving customers and making them transfer the payments for the goods they never possessed. We have the latest technology recommended by the cyber police division to make sure that all attempts for criminal action are intercepted within the shortest possible time.
We recommend you to report any cases of internet fraud taking place here in Japan and report them to us sending it to the following email account email@example.com If you are reporting a fraud case please be specific with such details as names of the people you were dealing, internet address, bank account you transferred the payment. There are two effective police forces in place to fight internet fraud and we highly advise you to report your case to the professionals:
In case the fraud is coming from US based company, you can report it to FBI affiliated organization called Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC Center) The Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). IFCC's mission is to address fraud committed over the Internet. For victims of Internet fraud, IFCC provides a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of a suspected criminal or civil violation. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at all levels, IFCC offers a central repository for complaints related to Internet fraud, works to quantify fraud patterns, and provides timely statistical data of current fraud trends.
Here are our recommendations how to reduce the chances of being a victim of Internet Fraud. At the same time we advise you not to be paranoid about internet fraud as the vast majority of the companies selling cars on the internet are real companies (it is another issue what they delivery and the quality of the goods they deliver).
Here are basic things that you need to have in mind:
As a result of our continuous efforts to both deliver reliable and quality service and help defrauded customers dealing with bad experience – Japan partner itself gets under fire from dishonest people around the world.
Some people do not know the boarders of decency and use all means possible to wrack havoc in the minds of good people.
Scam, Fraud, Shady dealings, Hoax, Fake – are the means that are often used against us as well.
Over the years, our competition has actively tried to use the Internet in undermining our efforts to be the best car exporter in Japan.
Through legal means, we have taken down a number of these websites claiming that Japan Partner is a fake or a fraud; a scam or a hoax.
It is unfortunate that other companies resort to these 'dirty-tricks', labeling us a fake, a scam or a fraud, in the hope of having an advantage over Japan Partner.
We continually work in order to compile the most relevant information on the subject on this site : http://www.japan-partner.com/internet-fraud-watch.php
Scams and frauds are rampant throughout Japan's car export industry, but we believe in setting the standard as we take on all comers and accept the challenge of setting an example for other car export businesses to follow.
Japan Partner's company policy is to be transparent in all our business dealings, as we understand the potential difficulties that surround our customers when doing transactions online. We always go the extra mile and ensure that our clients get the best personalized customer service that we can offer, all the time.
For over 15 years and more than 40,000 vehicles sold, these 'tricks' are not new to us. We have always risen above.
