These types of crimes are on the rise. High unemployment and no jobs. Expect this sort of stuff more and more now folks. Keep ya doors locked all times and say goodbye to the safe old Japan.

Im gonna have to agree with ya southsaki. Expect what happened to Canada/US in the early 90s to happen to j land. A lot of break ins, thefts, and fraud!

before it happens third time, i would suggest to hire the services of ALSOK or SECOM (!) But, nothing works if it's an inside job or insurance scam.
