Alert: Beware of fraudulent emails that pose as messages from the company's executives

Jun. 23. 2016
Marubeni Corporation

In June 2016, we became aware of a person posing as a Marubeni officer to send emails which requested payment for a fictitious acquisition, and asked the recipient to provide information as directed by a third party posing as an attorney for that person.

One feature of these messages was that their email addresses appeared similar to legitimate company email addresses.  We caution all to confirm sufficiently the senders and contents of suspicious emails you may receive.
