There were several operations around the time when the fund was pulled out including the financial fraud case. I wrote the instigation case about the gold smuggling and money laundering which were ones of those around that time.
It is ordinary for the intelligence agency to conduct a sting operation against the target, a basic of the antipersonnel operation, which is basically well planned with a profound research to frame you under the situation jumping on the fraud. Each operation was not one day mission but continuously adjusted until its final success or failure.
I realized one of the cases was a fraud as the money amount was irregular. I had a career working as a prop trader hence I knew the limit of personal discretion of each trader in the financial company. If not, I might have jumped on these fraud cases.
There was another fraud case when I went to Guam in 2009 and there was also another financial fraud in 2010, which were created by real crooks and spies, as there was no way that I fell on those sting operations.
They did not understand a profile of mine that there was no way to be involved with the normal financial fraud as I am basically too cautious and brush up my judgment of the risk by gut as well, which makes me away from the sizable loss.
Contrarily saying, there were many businessmen from the financial industry framed by those traps as the majority of them are not positioned to take the risk, who are not trained to judge it. After they were instigated to conduct a crime, the Japanese police intelligence or CIA confronted them with an evidence to ask them working as an intelligence asset, which is one of the main purposes of the intelligence agency.
However, this outcome has been a little dangerous to our society as they become an intelligence asset as a result of their crimes. They essentially do not care what is legal or not and they eventually get a legal exemption as far as working as a spy, hence they have escalated crimes including the financial scam to have created a big social problem.
The CIA, Japanese police intelligence or others have left them at large, but this should not be just a result that they worked for the intelligence community; i.e. that crime money has been highly likely reimbursed to the intelligence officers.
This is the fact of the intelligence community that I have not fallen in.
