The Job Scam (Case #1) is the case to take on the Cortonith Island, which was created by Erikah. This is the first case to deal with at the Tripea Bay district, as well as the very first case of Erikah's cases have been made.
An alumni named Brian Anloki has been found dead at the entrance area of the Tripea Bay. With the help of the witness Ayako Witherwood, Rei Turney and Simon Scamwell were suspected of murder at the time where Ayako noticed that Brian was killed. After gaining enough evidence, Simon Scamwell was found guilty of first degree murder. Although Simon Scamwell admitted his motives of killing Brian Anloki (by luring him by means of "hire" as a police officer, and killing him, he stole all of Brian's money afterwards), he was jailed for 30 years, with a chance of parole of 15 years.
Since this case strictly works as a "tutorial case", the player was then permitted to move on to the next case (although they can elect to interrogate Rei Turney later) as gratitude for completing the case.
