It has come to our attention that a person or persons unaffiliated with the SBI Group is sending emails to people impersonating the SBI Group. In at least one instance, they sent out an email stating that the SBI Group is offering employment. As a part of that offer, they sent a check in certain amount. They requested the person to deposit that money into the person's bank account and then electronically transfer the same amount back to their bank account.

Please be vigilant about and disregard these types of emails impersonating the SBI Group. We do not issue checks as a part of our hiring process, nor do we ask the candidate to electronically transfer funds. If you receive an email similar to that described above, please contact us at inq-all@sbigroup.co.jp.
