    Woman arrested for pretending to be Teru

    Post  eri401 on Thu Nov 04, 2010 8:20 am

    I read it here: http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/national/news/20101028p2a00m0na013000c.html?inb=tw

    Here is the article:
    Woman arrested for posing as member of 'Glay,' tricking fan into sending money

    MATSUYAMA -- Police have arrested a woman for posing as vocalist "Teru" of the popular rock band "Glay" and tricking a fan into paying large sums of money with promises of marriage.

    The arrested woman, Mayumi Saito, a 31-year-old housewife in Tomakomai, Hokkaido, is charged with posing as Teru on a cell-phone website created by the victim, posting messages such as "I think I'll be OK after about 10,000 yen more," and tricking the victim, a 45-year-old woman from Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, into wiring money 13 times in March of this year for a total of 98,000 yen.

    Police, however, say that the total amount that Saito scammed the woman out of over the last few years is much more. They say that in the fall of 2006, Saito began her scheme by accessing the woman's page and claiming to be an acquaintance of Teru. From around September of 2007, Saito began posing as Teru himself, writing comments such as, "I'm going to divorce, but I need money for the divorce payments. When it's all done, let's live together. I promise I will come to you."

    Police say that including the payments made in March of this year, Saito tricked the woman into sending money around 900 times to multiple bank accounts, adding up to a total of around 16 million yen.

    According to police, Saito has admitted to the accusations, saying she "used the money for living expenses." Police are investigating for accomplices in the crime as well as any other victims.

    cat Wow I feel really sorry for the woman in some ways, but in others you can't be that naive to think that a freaking Millionaire needs money for divorce payments....

    Still really sad tho.

    it's so sad that this happened, and it's been going on for such a long time.

    I can't conceive a thought as to how this woman could have fallen for it, but that there are people who are so evil as to violate the message of love that Glay is and use that as a means for personal profit at the expense of someone else is just an abomination in itself.

    I wonder if Teru was disturbed, I certainly was >:

    I remember this story. I feel so sorry for the woman, but at the same time I don't understand how she could be so naive. Somewhere deep down she had to have known it was a scam...

    I don't even feel sorry for her. How can anyone believe that TERU! from GLAY! would have no money to divorce his wife. That's just...
