It shows a screen that demands 99,800 yen every five minutes. The app gathers the personal details of the users such as their phone numbers and e-mail address which they can use for coercion.

Because the app developers obtained their personal information, it is then displayed on the screen together with the demand for payment. The criminals will get in touch with the users to demand the amount needed to be paid.

The senior police who investigated the case revealed that 211 users lost their money from the app. The users were forced to pay about 21 million yen. The acquired money came from made-up fees set up by people who created the app.
