Important notice on fake emails requesting money be wired to an offshore bank account.
Hackers have been exploiting Takeda’s name in fraudulent emails requesting that our vendors send them wire transfer payments.
In a recent case, a vendor was asked to make a payment to an individual’s account –not a corporate account. Takeda would never request that a payment be made to an individual’s account.
Please be vigilant and suspicious of such payment requests and never issue transfer payment to individual accounts.
If you do receive any suspicious emails, do not reply directly. Please immediately contact your personal counterpart at Takeda or reach us through the contact form on our website.
