Fradulent E-Mail Activities

By 1. October 2021 No Comments

Dear Valued Customers and Visitors,

We obtained information that fraudulent email activities are currently taking place, in which sender pretends to be a company of Kyocera Group. The sender sends e-mails to random recipients by using our company data.

Such Business email compromise (“BEC”) is one of the most financially damaging online crimes.

These emails attempt to make email receivers transfer money to a fraudulent bank account and might include questions about outstanding / open invoice with KYOCERA and apparent changes of notification payment process.

Please note that no personal data was disclosed by KYOCERA and pay special attention to BEC.

Please be especially careful with points below when you receive any emails which suddenly, urgently instruct you to transfer money to an unusual account. This includes particularly the following signs of fraud:

  • Unfamiliar Sender
  • Unmatch Sender and “Reply To” addresses
  • Email contents which you don’t feel right

If you face with any doubts might relate to BEC, please contact your usual contact person immediately before taking any action at your end. Our staff was made aware of these issues and we are ready to help in any cases of doubt.

We appreciate your understanding and high attention on this matter.
