And NTT is going to reimburse their customers for their loss?

Quick get the cyber security minister, oh that's right he is now busy with the Olympics that won't happen. Leadership with out precedent.

Docomo needs to be raided by the police and investigated for such a crappy system which was probably outsourced 10x and made within a month.

In the recent cases, third parties are believed to have obtained the victims' bank account numbers and passwords, and used them to register with the e-money service to transfer funds.

How do they do this and is it the fault of NTT Docomo?

According to NHK NTT Docomo has said such (they will reimburse customers). I am not sure if any additional information has come out but it seems none of the major banks were impacted.

I am wondering if this is a result of phishing.

Quick get the cyber security minister,

Isn't the cyber security minister the same guy who said he does not know how to use a computer?

This is a pervasive pain silently borne by many banks in many countries.

Silently !! Because not many of us would admit of having been conned, much less the embarrassment and customer mistrust that could ensue for banks. A good Image is everything. And still, silently, they'll continue to haemorrage cash.

Does make sense if they weren't going to reimburse the victims. Hasn't etransfers been around for ever, should have these measures down tight.

My guess is that this happened over a free WiFi system. Their phones were probably hacked into.
