    Watch out for this one.. it claims to be from Citibank, but is actually hosted somewhere in China and seems to be to collect names and partial banking details:

    That's a new one. I keep getting that paypal one.

    I often wonder how many people are actually fooled by those e-mails and respond.

    It's hard to see the scam, it gets your name plus the first four digits of your account. Probably there's some follow-up thing.

    I tried to report it to Citibank but they have no contact details, no globally accessible 24-hour contact number and no request form. Crappy.

    I click on nothing that has a visible '@' in the url. I got that scam proposition and noticed it.

    Click this harmless sample: http://www.ebay.com@www.yahoo.com/

    I've seen it several times. Looks pretty innocent: The above sample looks like it's going to ebay, but really lands you at yahoo.

    Consistency is the key to a winning season.
