We have recently become aware of reports of false offers of employment by Marubeni Corporation circulating widely in China by way of e-mail which uses Marubeni Corporation's name and corporate logo. Such false offers of employment are seemed to be used in order to fraudulently obtain funds for the costs associated with training activities. Marubeni Corporation and our subsidiaries in China never use personal e-mail addresses for the purposes of recruitment. We have not referred such recruitment activities to any external third parties and any such offers of employment have no connection with Marubeni Corporation.
Although we are going to take all the necessary steps to halt such false offers of employment, it is difficult to eliminate all such activities. We ask that you please be alert to all such false offers of employment.
