A 77-year-old woman has been ordered by the Shizuoka District Court to pay ¥400 million in damages to a 79-year-old man who said he was tricked into lending her that amount of money over a 12-year period, it was learned Wednesday.

Presiding Judge Akira Adachi ruled Tuesday that the woman “used her sexual charm by bathing with the plaintiff at hotels and lured him to become close with her and borrowed money without having any will or ability to pay him back.”
