JFE Advises Caution Regarding Unauthorized Emails

JFE Holdings has learned that many people outside Japan have recently received suspicious emails or instant messages from persons claiming to have close connections with JFE Holdings or a JFE group company. Some of the senders reportedly offer recipients positions at a JFE group company, saying that the group is slated to open a new office overseas. Others reportedly invite recipients to work with a JFE group company on a project.

JFE confirms that these senders have no relationship with any JFE group company and their offers are untrue.

Recipients of such communications are strongly urged not to reply, as this could lead to fraud or the improper acquisition/usage of their personal information.

Anyone concerned about the authenticity of communication sent in the name of JFE should contact:
