NBI Arrested Japanese National Mastermind of Largest Telco Fraud Syndicate

The operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested a Japanese national allegedly mastermind of the largest telco fraud syndicate.

At a 5-star hotel in Paranaque City, the NBI-Special Task Force arrested a Japanese national. Wayanabe Yuki, also known as Kenji Shimada/ Shi Shimada, was named as the said foreigner by NBI OIC-Director Eric B. Distor.

Yuki has gone into hiding in the region, according to Distor, because of his involvement in various crimes in Japan and other countries. It is also accused of running syndicate operations in the Philippines, such as online fraud and extortion.

Yuki is also said to be the “big boss” of the world’s largest telecommunications fraud ring, which has operations in Japan and the Philippines. When the NBI-STF discovered the suspect’s location, it immediately contacted the Bureau of Immigration (BI) and waited for him to be apprehended.

Yuki was joined by two other Japanese nationals, Tomonobu Saito and Kousuke II, who were detained after failing to produce their passports and ACR. They were all taken to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) for verification and booking procedures.

Yuki tested positive for COVID-19, while the other two tested negative, according to a swab examination. They were also given to the NBI-Security Management Section (NBI-SMS) for temporary custody so that they could be separated and quarantined properly.

In the meantime, the BI sent a commitment order to the NBI. Yuki is charged with Undesirability (Fugitive) and Illegal Entrant in that commitment order, while Tomonobu Saito is facing a Summary Deportation Order.

The BI, on the other hand, released a release order against Kousuke II because there was insufficient proof to determine probable cause. His tourist visa is valid until May 2021, according to the BI record, so he is not an overstaying alien.
