Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s top economic chiefs have failed to agree on a contentious corporate tax cut amid lingering skepticism that the move will bolster the deflation-mired economy and amid pressure on business leaders to raise wages.

 

Abe, Finance Minister Taro Aso and economic and fiscal policy minister Akira Amari met Friday to put the final touches on an economic stimulus package, including the corporate tax reduction, in an attempt to soften the blow to the economy of the planned sales tax hike to 8 percent next April from the current 5 percent.

 

But Amari, a proponent of cutting business taxes, told reporters after the meeting that the details of the package “have yet to be decided,” indicating the three were unable to meet halfway over the issue...

Facebook ID fraud case on the rise


The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Avanti Group (Sept. 02 2013) - Identity fraud on the popular social networking site Facebook has been surging recently, with fraudsters hijacking accounts or masquerading as real friends or acquaintances. Some victims have had their personal information stolen after approving fake friend requests from acquaintances.

 

Familiar name

“These are some pictures taken by my friend. If you don’t mind, please vote for them.”

 

A 48-year-old male company employee from Chiba city, the capital of Chiba Prefecture, received this Facebook message in June from a female company employee in Kashiwa, also in the prefecture.

As she was an acquaintance from more than 10 years ago, he did not think twice before clicking on the URL. The link took him to another site with several photos of scenery.

 

When he tried to vote for one of them, he was asked to enter his cell phone number.

 

Thinking this to be strange, he contacted the woman, who said she had not sent any such message.

 

She logged into her Facebook profile and checked with her friends on the matter, only to find her account had been used by an unknown person.

 

Similar messages had been sent to about 60 of her Facebook friends.

 

The woman had been using the same password on several different websites. “My password must have been stolen from some of the sites and used maliciously,” she said.

 

“My account may have been hijacked. I’m terribly sorry for causing my friends trouble.”

 

Antiviral software company Trend Micro Inc. said it had confirmed five cases in which Facebook users were tricked into visiting websites using a similar technique and actually entered their cell phone numbers. READ FULL ARTICLE AT THE-JAPAN-NEWS.COM
