On March 11, 2011, an earthquake occurred in East Japan, and many people suffered extensive damage. Immediately after the earthquake, tsunami, and a nuclear accident, no rioting or plundering were witnessed. Soon after these disasters, however, some people began to commit fraud. In this chapter I analyze the phenomena of fraud and fraudulent business practices in chronical order through the use of articles by Asahi Shimbun, one of three major Japanese newspapers covering all over Japan. In addition, the fraud by Boryokudan (a group of Japanese gangsters) and remittance fraud by swindlers against the elderly are analyzed. Last, fraudulent business practices and scandals of bid rigging are explained, through which we can estimate the spread of corporate crime in Japan.
