Notice about fraud
Jun 9, 2014
We would like to notify you of a fraudulent use of our corporate/group name, and domain name including the character of “MUFG”.
We have recently become aware of e-mails sent under the name of "Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc." from an address that seeks to mimic a legitimate “MUFG” domain address, an example being “mufg-mail.com”. Our group name and logo are also used in the attachments of such e-mails without our consent. These e-mails appear to have been used fraudulently to promote sending an advance payment of funds to some escrow account in order to enable huge sums of stock sales profit to be released/transferred to the email recipient.
"mufg-mail.com" is not an authorized e-mail address of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. It is not authorized by any company within our group including The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., and there is no record of such a message having been sent from the e-mail server of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group companies.
Such e-mails are in no way associated with any of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group companies, and they have been sent without the knowledge or consent of the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group companies.
We appreciate your understanding.
