A recent news reported a city in Japan is facing a shortage of ninja performers and offering job candidates a maximum annual salary of ¥9.45 million (S$115,121). This news resulted in email applications from people at least 14 countries overseas. When the annual salary of ninja performers is US$23,000 and US$85,000. In a statement issued in Japanese, English and three other languages, the city tried to squelch the hopes of applicants, adding: "Please be careful about fake news."
Our assessment is that the intent of publishing such a news is perhaps more to bring attention to the city and does not appear to be malicious. We would encourage our reader to check for the source. If no source is mentioned, it’s a clear case of fake or doctored news
