    Beware I just got this email I think it must be a scam as I'm sure no genuine bank would ask for your personal info like this.

    I did a whois and here is the info (right at the bottom) if anyone knows what it is best to do with it to try and get this scum either behind bars or dangling on the end of a rope.

    Gordon, Citibank should have an email address where you can send this type of thing to. It is definitely a fraudulent request to try and get your personal details. I've received something like this from someone posing as MY bank as well - in fact the bank has a warning on their website about it. There is a similar thing going on with somebody trying to get your PayPal details as well. One just has to ask "what is the internet turning into?"!! A nesting place for crooks and scam artists!

    Gordon,

    Make sure you send that message, headers and all, to CitiBank. Most banks have a very low tolerance for this type of activity, and they WILL go after the perps that send this cr@p out.

    Once CitiBank gets involved, the dipstick who sent you this spam will have sent his last!

    This scam has been around for about 2 years. I periodically get the same email.

    hi,

    The email PROBABLY used an IE/outlook vulnerability URL spoof. Using your regular internet explorer, you woulnt notice anything wrong, with the https + plus the citibank.com domain. this scam has been in circulation for quite a few years now (and quite successful)

    you can test your IEs and find out for yourself.

    be careful guys.

    I have gotten this email too, but at email accounts that have nothing to do with my citibank account.

    Gordon, if you actually typed in the citibank.com URL on the address bar then your fine, BUT if you clicked on the link on the email it will SPOOF the IE and you would see something like https://citibank.com (or anything they want) but thats not actually the real URL, thats the IE exploit URL spoof in action. If you wamt, you can review the link i gave earlier to see how this IE vulnerability is being exploited

    I see how you mean now prix yes,
    WOW! some guys are really on the ball in this game aren't they?

    I wonder when microsoft will fetch out yet another security patch? I feel like I've got more security patches than bloody explorer files on my comp and it is still so easy to hack or fool.

    There was an article in yesterday's newspaper about phishing - and they actually used the Citibank email as an example.

    Thay said citibank has some kind of warning on their site to let their cardholders know it's happeneing.

    But when you think about it, they probably send out millions of these - and they only need ONE sucker - that's too strong - they only need one person who isn't 100% tech savy, and they have a successful identity theft.
