We’ve seen a variety of scams arise over the past couple of years, with scam artists becoming more and more proficient in their scams. 

But we never thought we would see scam artists airing their scams, let alone detailing how to perform a scam on social media.

Mai Watanabe is a self-proclaimed con artist and recently got arrested for detailing her methods on how to scam ‘sugar daddies’ through paid dating. 

“25-year-old Watanabe, who hails from Nagoya, Japan, was arrested in August for selling a number of dating scam manuals to her social media followers. Featuring titles like ‘Textbook for Sugar Babies: The Right Profile and Magical Words to Make Men Pay,’ these books went into great detail about the right way to approach vulnerable middle-aged men and get as much money from them as possible.” (Oddity Central)

“Watanabe started selling her scamming manuals last year, for prices between 10,000 yen ($67) and 20,000 yen ($134), with private lessons available for an additional fee.” (Oddity Central)

That’s between R1,200 and R2,500 in our currency.

“Police started investigating Watanabe after arresting a 20-year-old woman who they believe managed to swindle a total of 10.65 million yen ($72,000) from two men in Aichi Prefecture using tactics from Watanabe’s books.” (Oddity Central)

Watanabe admitted that she did in fact knowingly help her customers commit fraud…
