Japanese man who pretended to be a 17-year-old to get social support is arrested
According to police, he used a false name to be under the care of the Westside Child Guidance Center in the city of Nagoya from June to August. There, he received a free place to stay and three regular meals a day, wonderful, right?
However, a member of the facility’s staff found an item left by Fujiwara that seemed to question his age. The reports don’t say what the team member found, but it appears he likely left his HitClips lying around.
The employee then contacted the police, who began an investigation that concluded that Fujiwara was 28 years old. However, the suspect denies the accusations against him saying the following: ”I’m 17 years old, so I don’t remember anything”
Let’s take a look at Japanese reactions online?
”Talk about a baby face…”
”He’s 28 and looks 17?!”
“I could imagine a 38-year-old pretending to be 27, but there’s no way 28 can pass for 17.”
”They didn’t even bother to check his identity?”
”He’s 17 years old in his soul!”
”It’s a crime, but it also exposes a major weakness in this system” ”He’s forever 17”
It’s true to say that some Japanese have some strange quirks. How did a 28-year-old guy end up slipping through the system? It’s really intriguing.
