Many "trick" scams in Japan
The Japanese embassy has issued many warnings that draw attention to the fact that many Vietnamese students and victims are misled by some unethical brokers.

High school students in Hanoi. The company advises high school students to visit a designated Japanese school in Tokyo for the first two years, after which they receive a scholarship for the next four years, equal to 60% of the tuition fees. However, a scholarship certificate with the name of FUKUI University is considered fake.
Some students trust and sign a consulting contract and pay for this company with mediation costs of several hundred to several thousand dollars.
According to a warning from the Japanese embassy: the number of trainees in skills and overseas students entering Vietnam is increasing rapidly. But at the same time, the situation that many young people in Vietnam are being misled by a number of unethical brokerage houses, bear the indebtedness of the Japanese, do not pay and as a result of illegal stay in Japan are arrested the rise; is also a concern.
In particular, the number of victims not only increases between skilled trainees and foreign students, but also for engineers (technicians). Many companies insist "like not paying the costs right away, they will not go to Japan" to ask employees to pay a high fee.
The relocation of these companies is to discuss "entry with a short stay visa, then switch immediately to a permanent residence visa and work in Japan for 3 years", and then ask to pay a large sum of money. Victim pays the company 300 million, to Japan with tourist visa, no work, only the debt is there. Another option is to deposit and pay a few thousand dollars a month and wait for work.

It is strictly forbidden to collect deposits, to prohibit the collection of funds from trainees before trainees have received a certificate of residence status.
