Phony cop woos women for money, marriage

Date Posted: 2007-06-08

Tomohiro Kawamitsu is in plenty of trouble.

He is in jail, charged with deceiving four women with promises of marriage. Not one, not two, not three, but four women have brought their charges against a Cassanova who not only promised to marry them, but persuaded them to give him nearly ¥20 million.

The 24-year-old Tomohiro passed himself off as a police chief as he met the women and played his con game. The first of his fraudulent love schemes began in 2005, when he met a girl on an online dating site. After a month, he began asking for money, claiming to be Yuuki Kinjo, telling her “I’m a police chief. In fact, I’m the youngest police chief in Okinawa.”

Officials say the suave Tomohiro was simultaneously courting the three other women. His promise to marry a 24-year-old Nanjo City woman was accompanied by her giving him ¥120,000. She wasn’t the first of his conquests.

To another, he was asking “Please help me. I have a foreign passport and I can’t get a loan from a bank. Can you get money from your bank for me?” That woman forked over ¥3.5 million, leading her father to begin worrying.

“Why is your boyfriend asking so many times to get money from you?” the father kept asking. “Isn’t there something wrong with him?” The daughter kept insisting “it’s all right, because he’s promised to marry me, and I believe him.” Dad wasn’t buying the story, meeting with Tomohiro to demand “to see your police officer ID.” The fast thinking con man said “Sorry, I don’t keep my ID with me. It’s in the police station”. The father insisted they go to the police station, and they did. A trip to the Prefecture Police Headquarters was next, but on arrival Tomohiro said “Sorry, father. You wait here while I go inside by myself.” He got out of the car, went into police headquarters, and disappeared.

The irate father went into headquarters as asked for Yuuki Kinjo, the police chief. “There’s no such person in our offices,” he was told. That April 20th incident sent police into action, presumably angry at the deception.

Meanwhile, another woman notified police about Tomohiro, and he was apprehended at her home. “Oh my God. He promised to marry me” she exclaimed after being told about his marriage trickery. The police investigation says they’ve confirmed the ¥20 million conned from four women, but say they’re convinced there are more.

Tomohiro, calm as ever, told police “every lady believed me. If I say I’m a police chief, they gave me money so easily. Not one ever suspected me. Ladies are so simple.”
