    Nice Try

    I recently was looking through my email and got this email. First problem I see is half the damn words are spelled wrong second the Actual web address, and third and most importantly. "I DON'T HAVE A CITI BANK ACCOUNT."

    This goes on my nice try of the week list. I am going to telnet in later and look at the header for this.



    Dear citi_bank Members,

    This leter was sent_ by the Citi-Card _server_ to veerify _your_ email_ adderss_.
    You must complete this process by clicking on_the_link below and enttering
    in the smmall _window your Citi_Bank Debbit Card Nummber and card pin that
    you_use in_the _ATM_. That_is done for-your protection -i- becaurse some of our
    _members_ no_longer have access to their E_Mail _address_es and we must verify it.

    Disturb there are people that stupid. I can only think back to the Best Buy one, that was alot better then this one. But none the less hit a crap load of people. I personally have always believe that if you are going to do a scam atleast make it a good rip off of the origional.

    They could atleast make the site some good. I mean come the hell on. That is just a really sad rip off. I mean damn, my little brother that knows nothing about computers could come up with a better rip off.

    It's pretty funny actually, almost sad. They can not even spell or attempt to make it look official in any way.

    The funniest part of it is that these morons think they are 1337 and they don't even know how to use a damn spell-checker.......

    Worthwhile to visit this website to keep up to date on various phishing attempts and to forward phishing attempts so that others will learn/be aware.

    Sadder yet is the amount of Morons who will actually think it is legit and give their info to these clowns.
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?
