Citibank Account Update
disguised link leads to bogus web content - submitted form data is captured by a script located ont he same web server as the bogus page
Bogus Web Content?
True URL of web pages - resolves to web space in China

1. Another example of forging the Location (address) bar in the browser to fool page visitors that they are at a genuine Citibank domain. See also - previous Citibank Scam
2. Right click in the toolbar area and switch the Address Bar back on, and you will see the genuine URL of this forged Citibank page.


This bogus Citibank email leads to a page which has its Address (Location) bar spoofed to trick users into thinking that they are at a genuine Citibank web 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.


The Spoof Email ...

Dear Citibank Member,

This email was sent by the Citibank server to verify your E-mail
address. You must complete this process by clicking on the link
below and entering in the small window your Citibank ATM/Debit
Card number and PIN that you use on ATM.

This is done for your protection - because some of our members
no longer have access to their email addresses and we must
verify it.

To verify your E-mail address and access your bank account,
click on the link below:


Thank you for using Citibank
