Warning about Hoax Emails (phishing scams)

Recently, we have been made aware of an ongoing social engineering scam where an individual or individuals have been purporting to be representatives of Mizuho Bank, Ltd. or Mizuho International plc, in order to conduct external scams.

  • Please be aware that we do not provide retail investor services in the EMEA region, or anywhere outside Japan; therefore, please be cautious if you receive a phone call or electronic communication related to the offering of any type of consumer based service. 
  • Please be aware of an ongoing scam where details of Mizuho vacancies are being re-posted by a third party, directing people away from our genuine application process. With this in mind, we remind you to be vigilant at all times and to protect your personal data. Before you upload your CV to an online recruitment site, take a moment to review and possibly remove some of the personal details included on your CV, and also look into the reputation and legitimacy of the site you are using. Mizuho Bank, Ltd. and Mizuho International plc utilize LinkedIn for selected roles, but our vacancies will always be posted alongside our logo on the platform.

Warning about companies identifying themselves as companies of the Mizuho Financial Group. Companies calling themselves "Mizuho Mergers & Acquisitions," "Mizuho Investments Inc.," "Mizuho Investments Beverly Hills," and "Mizuho Financial Global" have established websites and are engaged in activities on the Internet, identifying themselves as companies of the Mizuho Financial Group. Please beware that those companies have absolutely no relationship or association with Mizuho Financial Group.

Recently, business activities have been promoted by entities identifying themselves as "Mizuho DKB Brokerage," "Mizuho Corporate Global," and "Mizuho Holdings (6 Battery Road ♯12–01 Singapore. 049909)." Please be advised that these entities are not part of the Mizuho Financial Group and their affiliates have no affiliation with this business entity.
