Beware of anyone who falsely claims to be Embassy staff or working for any of the Japanese governmental agencies

Recently, the Embassy has learned that there is a person who, despite not being a member of Embassy staff nor a member of any governmental agency, falsely claims to be working at the Embassy/working for a Japanese governmental agency. That person makes these claims when submitting job applications, requesting information from companies and in order to harass other people. If you have contact with such a person and have any suspicions in this regard, please do not hesitate to contact the Embassy. If these harassments continue, it might be deemed appropriate to contact the local Police, as needed.
