Fraudulent activities by unknown persons impersonating Deutsche Bank Group / Deutsche Bank Group Employees

A number of reports have reached Deutsche Bank Group in recent months of incidents involving a person or persons unknown impersonating its employees. Some impersonators claim to be asset managers soliciting financial products or capital investments. Other impersonators claim to be Deutsche Bank Group’s overseas employees and deceive residents of Japan by use of forged documents into remitting money overseas in the form of legal fees and other costs. In these impersonating behaviours, some reports reveal that forged Deutsche Bank Group business cards or forged Deutsche Bank Group logos were used. Also, recently there have been a number of reports about suspicious emails using Deutsche Bank Group’s name. The sender of the suspicious email impersonates Deutsche Bank Group employee and informs that payment is pending and requests to respond to the email to release the payment. If the receiver of the email respond to the email, another suspicious email is sent and it requests to pay charges with cryptocurrency, etc. In these suspicious emails, it has been reported that pictures of Deutsche Bank Group logos and Deutsche Bank Group employee were used. These incidents have no connection to Deutsche Bank Group and we kindly ask the public, our customers and our business partners to beware of the actions of this person or persons unknown.

If you suffer losses as a result of such fraudulent activities, please contact the police or Consumer Affairs Agency.
