NICHICON CORPORATION and its world-wide affiliates, including NICHICON (AMERICA) CORPORATION (collectively, “NICHICON”), have been made aware of various unauthorized correspondences being circulated via e-mail from individuals or organizations (collectively, “Scam Artists”) falsely identifying themselves as representatives of NICHICON. It appears that these Scam Artists are targeting unsuspecting individuals and companies under the guise of requesting them to represent NICHICON in the United States. We have strong reason to believe that these solicitations are part of a larger fraudulent scheme. These Scam Artists may seek to obtain money and/or personal information from targeted victims. NICHICON has not authorized such Scam Artists to act on NICHICON’s behalf, nor does it have any affiliation with them.

NICHICON wishes to warn the public at large about these fraudulent activities being perpetrated purportedly in the name of NICHICON, and would appreciate your calling to our attention any suspect communications of which you may become aware. NICHICON considers these fraudulent (often criminal) activities a serious violation of its rights and intends to aggressively pursue all remedies available to it.

NICHICON strongly recommends that recipients of solicitations such as those described above exercise extreme caution. Financial loss and identity theft could result from the transfer of money and/or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondences. Victims of such scams should also report all relevant information to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action.

Should you have any doubts concerning the authenticity of an e-mail, letter or telephone communication purportedly from, for, or on behalf of NICHICON, please contact us at, before taking any further action with respect to the correspondence.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
