PIs have been involved in the intelligence operation against me and they are still around me, but I am not sure how deeply they are involved. As you can imagine, there is no money making opportunity just to tail me, hence they cannot run their operation by their own expense for this long.
It indicates they have been hired by some parties, though they cannot get all the intel if that is the case. They might recap their totaled information to reconstruct the big picture, which is the only way to understand what is going on.
They are not a mastermind, necessary to have a source of the income, one of which is apparently the CIA. However, the PIs’ activity has been sizable for a long time, which is hard to be supported by the agency, even though they are affluent enough. As you can imagine, if the operation has not worked well for years, the budget should have been cut and spent on others.
This logic implied PIs had another source of income to continue their operation, which is inevitably earned through the criminal act.
The PI network is one of the prominent crime infrastructures, which was why they have had enough fund to continue the supportive operation. Although, this continuation is motivated by another reason, which is a threat from the police department.
The police has availed this same network for their operation, which is one of the ways to run a covert illegal operation. In this sense, the police department has known that this network can be used for the crime easily. The data broker network is actually one of this, which created several social issues in the early 2010s in Japan.
They have sold a personal information, which was sometimes used for a murder. My personal information was also sold to the criminal organization, which was an incident in 2011, though its information was quite imperfect. I spent a majority of time outside the Japan in the last fifteen years, hence they cannot track me down properly.
My residence registration was untraceable as it occasionally showed going abroad without any address. In Japan, you can track down someone from these registrations, even though it is classified as an illegal and punishable.
However, there is another registration for the legal domicile, which was a point of the leak. It means my imperfect information was illegally stolen by a criminal who was legally entitled to obtain those and abused his access.
A couple of weeks later of my visit to the city hall, one of the judicial scriveners was arrested due to an abuse of his legal entitlement to access that personal information as a representative. He actually got them not representing the true principal, which was resold to this brokers’ market, eventually sold to the yakuza as well.
