-Alert: Beware of Fraudulent Emails Claiming to Be from Sumitomo Rubber Industries-
May 29, 2015
It has come to our attention that fraudulent emails are being sent, sometimes through social networking and job-search sites, from some person or persons claiming to represent Sumitomo Rubber Industries. Purporting to be for recruiting purposes, these emails offer employment as a "sales/payment representative" who will "retrieve overdue payments from customers who are located in your region" and promise high monthly payments and bonuses for "only a few minutes of your time daily." These emails are often signed using the names of actual employees without those employees' knowledge.

Any emails of this nature that you may receive are fraudulent and you should not respond to them in any way. We believe that these emails involve illegal activity.
