Actress Rei Kikukawa, 32, was bestowed the title of "Remittance Fraud Prevention Chief" for a day this week by the Japan Bankers Association, at a financial crime prevention event held at Shinjuku's Takashimaya department store.
"Let's bring financial crimes down to zero (rei)!" she said, using a pun on her name for the campaign slogan.
Kikukawa called for people to always consult their family or police if they have doubts, before transferring any money.
When asked what kind of fraud she thought was scariest, the unmarried actress replied, "I guess it would be marriage fraud."© Japan Today
