[Important Announcement] Please be aware of an email fraud involving persons posing as Toyo Tires officers or claiming to represent the company or company group affiliates.

Toyo Tires has recently learned of an email scam involving persons posing as company officers, or falsely claiming to represent the company or company group affiliates, while soliciting the opportunity to become collection agents on behalf of the company.

Examples of solicitations are as follows.

(Examples)

  1. Payment of 3% of collected receivables and $3,000 USD monthly for expenses when signing an agent contract as an individual
  2. Payment of 5% of collected receivables and $7,000 USD monthly for expenses when signing an agent contract as a company

The company, its group affiliates and officers have absolutely no involvement with these fraudulent practices and do not make such solicitations.
Please be aware of this scam, and if you receive email solicitations from anyone posing as the company, its group affiliates or company officers that appears even remotely suspicious, contact us immediately.

Do not respond to these emails or communicate with the sender, and do not provide the sender with any personal or financial information. Also, avoid clicking on links included in the emails, or the attachments, as doing so may result in malware or a virus being loaded on the recipient’s computer.
