Mitsubishi UFJ Says Japan Police Probing Fake E-Mails to Clients

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. is working with Japan police to investigate bogus e-mails circulated to customers since November that led some depositors to give up personal information and lose money.

The banking unit of Japan’s biggest lender reported the matter to the Metropolitan Police Department and National Police Agency in November, Tokyo-based company spokesman Takafumi Miyamoto said by telephone today.

Mitsubishi UFJ posted a notice on its website on Nov. 18 advising customers to delete suspicious e-mails that ask recipients to click on a link requesting Internet banking login details and passwords. The bank also began e-mailing customers on Nov. 27 warning them about the scam, Miyamoto said.

Miyamoto declined to comment on withdrawals or the number of inquiries that Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. received.
