" Dear Citibank user, As part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance of fraud on our website, we are undertaking a period review of our member accounts. "... yeah right!...


A spoofed Citibank Bank email which urges recipients to complete a form using a link provided but the link will lead to forged Citibank web content.

The forged web form was located at which resolves to in the USA and clearly has nothing to do with at all.

The bogus page had been removed by the time we had received this report, but we would expect the forgery to have represented something very similar, if not the same, to recent Citibank email scams where pages have been scripted to open a 'pop-up window' (with forged content) in front of the genuine page.

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
