Japan Company Trust Organization: Online Fraud

October 19, 2016

Whilst the vast majority of websites in Japan are of genuine business companies, but it is also a sad fact that online scams and fraud are alive, well and are very big business in Japan and rest of the world. It is very important to be smart and stay safe by exercising all due precaution and do not become a fraud victim.

One of the most troubling concerns of today's economy is the possibility of internet fraud. If you plan to buy a car, machinery, instrument, electronic, or anything from an exporter in Japan, it is strongly recommended for your own safety to verify any Japanese website or company's status under the "Japan Company Trust Organization". The most important thing before sending the money is to verify reality of a company, as online frauds and scams are increasing rapidly.

Since Japanese companies are respected for honesty, fraudsters take advantage of good reputation of Japanese enterprises. Many criminals in Japan has launched fake websites by showing them as legitimate business to gain victim’s trust and pretending to be real business. When somebody sends them money, they simply disappear. The internet fraud is damaging business of real Japanese companies. Since Japanese law is very strict against the fraud, this Organization reports all fraud attempts to the Japanese police department.

Online frauds take different forms to direct consumers to a fraudulent website that looks legitimate. Such websites claim their credibility and honesty and then commit a fraud. Those websites are designed by the professionals and even a very careful person can be a victim. Always remember if you are a professional business person, impostors are fraud specialists. They have such high tech that sometimes you will never realize them. A fraud website can appear legitimate, but you can verify on JCTO database, which will help you avoid being deceived.

For your own protection, the Japan Company Trust Organization warns you to reconfirm a website or company's reality at our database before any purchase. Just by typing company’s name in JCTO’s search box and you will find reality of that company. The Japan Company Trust Organization is an anti-fraud organization in Japan, fighting against the online-fraud.

This Organization has a close connection with Japanese police, and all fraud-attempts are immediately reported to Japanese Police Department.  Before registration, JCTO verify the company’s profile including registration, license, and physical address. Japan Company Trust Organization warns you NOT to remit money to any so-called Japanese company without verification and your full satisfaction.

A heady combination of Chinese, Indian, Malay and Western influences, Singapore is truly a cultural melting pot. Delicious food, high street shopping, contemporary arts – find all this and more. Here’s a three day itinerary to experience the best of Singapore.

Day 1

August 8, 2016

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba Adds To The Fun Factor With New Family Activities

Jordan’s leading family resort, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba, has enhanced its family offering further by creating several new activities for parents and children to enjoy together, including ‘Famolympics’, treasure hunts and private cooking classes with the resort’s chefs.

The resort’s 150-metre stretch of private beach is the location for the ‘Famolympics’, which tests a family’s teamwork, agility and coordination at five stations involving mind games, relays, swimming and sandcastle-making.  Treasure hunts make the most of the resort’s Red Sea beachfront location and see teams of parents and children work together to find hidden treasures. Both activities are available at the weekend.

For families who enjoy cooking together, the resort’s first-class kitchen is the perfect place to learn five-star culinary techniques. Supervised by professional chefs, the private midweek cooking classes give families hands-on cooking experience as they create one of three local Jordanian dishes: Maqloobah, Sayadieh and Mansaf, the country’s national dish.

“Family holidays are perfect for enjoying quality bonding time, while creating memories together to take back home,” says General Manager Beat Peter. “When introducing new initiatives, we focus on the dynamics of our guests, try to understand what they want and then work on something that fits with the resources and location that we have. Our beach and beautiful outdoor areas are definitely highlights, so activities that give our guests the opportunity to enjoy this are high on our agenda. We also want to be remembered for more than just our delicious food in the restaurants and the private cooking experience is a way to combine this with a cultural element. Only in making long-lasting moments can we set ourselves apart from others.”

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba is the only property in the Kingdom to be included in TripAdvisor’s Top Hotels for Families in the Middle East.

Tips for Backpacking through Southeast Asia by Bacall Associates Travel

March 21, 2016

Southeast Asia is among the most famous destinations in the world for backpackers. It's possible for you to discover lots of charm in every state, so it is a must see for many. If you are already residing in Asia, it is possible to adjust to any states within this subregion, but you could get a culture shock if you’re from a foreign land like USA or Europe. So performing a research is essential before the journey. Bacall Associates provide important pointers to take note of before you begin your journey to prevent any disorderly scenarios.

 

Don’t be afraid to haggle

Most westerners are shocked to learn that this was a common practice in the subregion, for them, it looks like an unfair deal to the sellers. But no more worries because most of the time, it’s not. Some foreigners just accept the first price stated by a seller and will not bother arguing about it. But in most cases, the first price was worth much more than the regular price. Bargaining is not a confrontation, so there’s no need to be scared of, just smile and ask the seller nicely, and eventually, you’ll find it very interesting to do.

 

You don’t need to book in advance

It will be really nerve-wracking and tiring to visit various locations at once, and then going back to the hotel you’re staying. It would be better to find a place to stay to the place you fell in love with during your travel because it will be easier to discover that particular place and enjoy its surroundings. You can have a flexible schedule if you’re going to do this rather than booking rooms in advance of time, simply because you’ll have more freedom to decide where to stay. But occasionally, booking ahead is recommended if you know you’re going to be exhausted from an extended flight, bus or train ride, or if you’re visiting a place during a major event and you don’t have time to roam about.

 

Transportation: Don’t be in a hurry

Expect to wait more minutes or hours in the estimated time of the arrival of a bus or train if you’re planning to go somewhere in Southeast Asia. Don’t get frustrated in this situation, but simply believe that this could bring you some favorable impact such as learning to restrain your misery and raise your patience. But there are some cities in the region that have efficient and developed transport systems, and one of which is Singapore.

 

Be cautious of scams

Scams could be everywhere and it can occur to you. Unfortunately, tourists becoming victims of various scams is nothing new in this region. Instead of being frightened, you need to be more cautious when traveling to Southeast Asia, or any part of the world. Before you begin your journey, you need to teach yourself with the most frequent kind of scams. If you know what to avoid, you can have a safe journey.

 

Properly manage your visa requirements

There are various visa requirements for each country in Southeast Asia, and Bacall Associates needs you to be educated of those. You cannot be accepted to every border by simply showing up your passport.

 

Stay hydrated

Showering two times a day might not be enough for you because Southeast Asia is quite hot during the coolest time of the year. Bacall Associates wants you to stay hydrated all the time because you’re going to sweat like never before, and during the hottest time of the day, find some shady spot and relax there for a bit.

 

Don’t get too excited on street foods

Some tourists experience having excruciating stomach pain due to food poisoning or eating undercooked food. Target stalls that have a line-up because you can be sure that the food is freshly cooked and not sitting under a heater all day.

 

There’s so much beauty to witness in Southeast Asia, and it’s not just about partying and beaches, the region is also rich in culture, and each of its countries deserves all the synonyms of the word “breathtaking”. Its simplicity and slow pace of life will undoubtedly capture your heart.
