Sony alerts consumers of fraudulent spam e-mail
by Mirko Zorz - Friday, 4 July 2003.
Sony Electronics reported that it has become aware of an unauthorized and deceptive spam e-mail that has been sent to consumers with the subject title "Sonystyle user and email address."

This fraudulent e-mail requests personal information - e.g., user

name, password and e-mail address).

Mike Fasulo, president of Sony Electronics' e-Solutions Company LLC said: "This message is not from Sonystyle.com or any other Sony Web

site or entity. The privacy of our customers' personal information is a top

priority and we have been working with the appropriate authorities to quickly contain and resolve the situation."

Fasulo added that the company has taken great measures to ensure the

security of all Sony Electronics Web sites and that there is no indication of any compromises to Sonystyle.com or the security of the site's data.

The company is urging consumers that have received this e-mail to discard it. If, by chance, consumers have responded to this fraudulent e-mail they should visit www.sony.com/news for more information.
