Scam Alert – 9-3-14

A SABOR member received several emails from a supposed buyer by the name Yoshika Joya based in Japan. This scammer told the REALTOR® he wanted a residential home priced between $500,000 and $1 million, with 4-5 bedrooms, 4-5 bathrooms and a 2 car garage, and that he would not be able to meet in person as he lives in Japan but to forward him the listing. He then explained he would be purchasing in cash and attached a copy of a fake bank statement and fake letter from his bank to show proof of funds for the purchase. There have been other reported scams from this name in conjunction with the purported New Japan Chemical Company, asking for companies to retain them with regards to a commercial debt collection. Please be advised to delete any emails coming from Yoshika Joya and do not engage in any business with this person.
