HKT48’s Anna Murashige almost scammed by porn website

Looks like HKT48 member Anna Murashige seems to enjoy the perks of being 18 years old. On the final day at the annual AKB48 Request Hour Setlist Best 100 Anna shared an entertaining story during one of the MC spots. 

Anna revealed that since she’s finally 18 years old she’s become of age to legally look at some porn sites, after finding an unnamed porn website she registered and clicked on a video from the “hitozuma” (married woman) genre. The video didn’t play, suddenly a pop-up appeared with the text “50,000 yen for 30 minutes”. She quickly cleared the screen but another message appeared asking to call the displayed number. Anna called the number giving the operator her name, also telling him she wants to cancel her account. The operator told her canceling the account would cost an additional 420,000 yen.  After explaining her situation to the operator he felt bad about trying to charge an 18 year old that much money, so he lowered the ” cancellation fee” to 60,000 yen. After telling him 60k was still too much he replied with “I believe in you, Anna. You can do it”

Naturally that response made her a bit uneasy, but she still thought a payment for 60,000 yen was required so she called her good friend, and fellow HKT48 member Sakura Miyawaki for help.  After hearing the predicament Anna was in Sakura yelled at her for almost falling for the websites fraud attempt, and that being forced to pay those fees was completely fictitious. With AV DVD sales still going strong in Japan perhaps Anna’s wota will keep this story in mind when looking for fan-gifts to purchase.

Meanwhile, HKT48 are currently preparing for the release of their 9th single Bagutte Iijan which will be released on February 15th, 2017.

      • lovehello

        You are so gross. What kind of teenage girl is going to ask her dad for porn? And what kind of dad isn’t going to be weirded out by that? That is not a normal situation ever. It’s not okay to be willfully ignorant

        • you really don’t have the connection between the absurdity of the story and my comment, right?
          that’s fine…
