    The e-mail is genuine, aswell as the message source :) Had me gigglin' for a good 20 minutes here :D

    edit: Anyway, the english is not the main point. This is a scam-mail, used by various people to obtain sensitive info. The least they could do is type in proper english :)

    Got that one last night, very good clone of the proper signing in page,they have just replaced username/password with cardno/pin code.
    Might well catch out a few people.

    How they got to use Citbanks url I don't know, must be some sort of alias on top of a hidden one.
    Surely they can be traced with ease.

    You'd think if they could spend all that time making a clone website they could atleast spare 5mins to run the email through the ol' spell checker :rolleyes:

    IT's a hole in IE, that allows them to copy the url, IE can't display some chars on the address box, so they put these into their web address which contains citibank.com in the middle of it and IE nicely displays just 'citibank.com', Microshite have known about it for a month and have yet to produce a fix.
    Loads of big sites have been targetted this way, one Microshite spokesman actually suggested people never follow links on the net, but always type the url in themselves...no shit!

    Halifax Building Society were hacked a month or two back... All their online banking stuff was off, and people kept getting mails from "them" telling you to enter your back details, card number, pin. Same as Lloyds I believe - and they looked like the real deal - AND the English had been spellchecked.

    Deffo caught a lot of people out too I believe... Of course, I was impressed with the Lloyds one - I don't use them, never have. Oh, and the Halifax one was sent to the wrong account. And even then, I don't do bank stuff via email... hehehe
