Onna Village group targeted in internet scam operation

Date Posted: 2008-12-18

The Global Foundation Gaea Club in Onna is in the crosshairs of Okinawa Prefecture Police who believe the Onna Village group is engaged in a deceptive money scam operation.

Okinawa Prefecture Police say the Gaea Club, operating on the internet with promises of “getting ¥1 million after ten weeks if you pay a ¥31,500 principal and a ¥30,000 registration fee” isn’t living up to its promise. Club owners have told police there are an estimated 20,000 club members across Japan, with another 3,000 in Okinawa. The trouble, police say, is that Gaea Club stopped paying the promised dividends to members last December, and members can’t get their initial investments back, either.

Global Foundation Gaea Club, in its internet pitch, says “I am planning to build a United Nations Tower Asian headquarters here in Okinawa, and your money will be used for tower construction money.” Irate club members say they’ve done their own investigation, and found Gaea has no registration company for the foundation, and that there’s no company in existence at all.

Members say they were getting dividends at the beginning, starting with ¥1,000 the first week, then ¥2,000 a second week, and ¥4,000 the third week. The problem came when it was time to get the big money, and the internet site announced “if you didn’t get new members within 30 days, you will not get dividend money at all.”
