Man arrested for 24,000 complaint calls

Recommended Posts


"An elderly Japanese man has been arrested after calling a phone company 24,000 times to file complaints about his contract.

"71-year-old Akitoshi Okamoto was taken into custody after making thousands of toll-free calls over an eight-day period to the customer service section of KDDI, a major telephone operator in the country.

"A police spokesman told AFP news agency: “He demanded that KDDI staff come to him to apologise for violating his contract. He also repeatedly hung up his calls immediately after placing them.”

"Mr Okamoto is also suspected of using public payphones to make thousands more calls to complain about the company and insult customer service staff."
