【Fraud Alert】Regarding fraudulent e-mails pretending to be from management people of Marubeni-Itochu Steel Inc.

Recently, we have received several inquiries from individuals and associations concerning suspicious e-mails which they have received under the names of our management. The contents of such e-mails are about an open position with the company and an inquiry to law firms in connection with possible representation of the company.

Please be advised that we do not contact individuals regarding job openings by sending an unsolicited e-mail. Further, the relevant Department within the company, and not top management, initiates any contact with a law firm in connection with legal representation.

In case you have received suspicious e-mail such as above, please treat it with caution and contact us concerning appropriate follow-up action.
