Takeda, a former employee of Yokado, was arrested

Under the guise of a meeting to discuss the remodeling of stores across Japan, Takeda exchanged about 24 million yen in bullet train tickets for cash over a period of seven years.”

The man made a statement to this effect during an internal investigation.

On October 5, Kojimachi Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department arrested Nobuharu Takeda, 57, of Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, of unknown occupation, on suspicion of fraud, etc. The suspect Takeda is a former employee of Ito-Yokado, a major supermarket.’ During the seven years from April 2003, he applied for 755 empty business trips and cheated the company out of 24 million yen worth of Shinkansen tickets and other items.

Takeda allegedly obtained 24 Shinkansen express tickets and train tickets (worth approximately 190,000 yen) by entering false information about business trips to Osaka and Aomori in the company’s application system around January ’22, when he was manager of the sales promotion department of the company. It appears that Takeda illegally cashed in the swindled tickets.

The company became suspicious of the excessive amount of business trips and conducted an internal investigation. In May 2010, the company dismissed Takeda, who admitted that he had used the money for living expenses and hobbies. The Kojimachi Police Station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department was consulted. Takeda admitted to the police that he had committed the crime, saying, ‘There is no doubt about it.

The general manager of TV Asahi also ……

Ito-Yokado is not the only large company whose employees have committed fraud. The following are some of the recent cases that have caused a stir.

In February 2010, a department manager in his 40s at TV Asahi (at the time, the same age and position below), A, was arrested by Osaka Prefectural Police. He was suspected of cheating 18 small and medium-sized companies out of 9 million yen in subsidies by falsely claiming that they had introduced IT tools to the government. The case involved the abuse of a government program to promote the use of IT by small and medium-sized businesses.

The subsidy program is designed to subsidize half of the cost of installing an IT system. However, there was no evidence that A had paid any expenses, and it was doubtful that the system had even been installed in the first place. Most of the 18 small and medium-sized companies that submitted false applications were represented by A. The total amount of illegal payments is estimated to be close to 200 million yen.

In June of this year, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department arrested a woman in her 40s, B, on suspicion of violating the Organized Crime Punishment Law (receipt of criminal proceeds). B’s husband is a former general manager of Rakuten Mobile, and he and his wife were arrested on suspicion of violating the same law (concealment of proceeds of crime).

Her husband began billing Rakuten Mobile in July 2009 for padded outsourcing fees for the construction of cell phone base stations, and apparently defrauded the company out of nearly 10 billion yen. Several subcontractors were allegedly involved in the fraud. B was the representative director of one of these companies. The executive compensation he received amounted to approximately 27 million yen per month.

The couple was living a luxurious life with a huge amount of slush fund, and a large number of ultra-luxury brand goods, including a Louis Vuitton vanity case valued at no less than 10 million yen, were seized from the top floor of the tower apartment where they were living.

The couple’s social networking site also shows their extravagant lifestyle. The couple’s social networking messages showed their extravagant lifestyle: “We bought a Chanel for 2.4 million yen,” “We ordered a Lexus (in addition to a luxury Ferrari),” etc.” (see above).

Because large corporations are large organizations, the amount of damage caused by fraud is also enormous. The suspects must have gradually lost their sense of guilt as they lived an elegant life cloaked in false pretenses with back taxes. It seems that they were unable to put a stop to it until the case came to light.
