      Please report it Citibank before your account is hijacked and used fraudulently by cybercriminals.

    My goodness they are getting good at this!!! I used to be able to tell the fakes by hovering over the link itself and could see it was some off the wall website that I would be directed to should I click on it, BUT this one LOOKS authentic!!!

    I forwarded it to Citibank spoof email as directed-but sure hope no one falls for this ??.

    These low life's make me so mad. AND sad. Thanks for staying on top of this!

    This particular email comes from alerts@citibank.com.

    Thank goodness I know enough that ALL banks WILL address customers by name.

    Hello fellow victims! I just received this lovely email from "Citibank", that was word for word as shared above. This is outrageous! I recently sent a moneygram to a relative, and it seems like ever since, my Spam folder is bursting at the seams!

    I was a little too trusting, it seems. Add insult to injury, I received a phone call from "Walmart", saying about a giftcard for all these savings! Like a TOTAL IDIOT, I somehow got duped into sharing my credit card info--I told myself it was ok, and only for a small fee of about $20.This fee was to sign up for magazines at a huge discount, and some energy saving vouchers.

    After signing up for only a "trial", I would receive my $150 giftcard from Walmart or Target, etc.If I changed my mind, I could cancel at any time, and only be charged with approx $3.I got an identical call a week later from "Walmart" again, and when I told the girl about wanting to cancel, she had to transfer me to someone to do that difficult task.

    I was in fact hung up on! And when I redialed the number, I got the greeting, and two options:

    1.) To speak with someone, or
    2.) To be taken off call list.

    To my shock and disgust, after pressing #1, a recording of a robot lady told me that my option was not valid. Omg, I'm screwed.I got the emails over the next week from the two companies I KNOW about, which I then contacted and cancelled.Then that same week, I sent a stupid moneygram to my niece.I never even heard of moneygram, but ever since that transaction, about ten days ago, I have been pouring over a TON of different sites like this, just literally SICK with dread that I'm going to be drained of everything!

    There needs to be more "direct hits" with Google (or whichever search-engine),like this page. I was blown away that it was literally verbatim. Well, I'm getting a reality check here. Our "protected information" is only a "GREAT OFFER!" a key punch or mouse click away from being snaked away in the Great Beyond of the Net.

    They are still phishing. I just received the same email today. I never open ANY email that says alert, warning, urgent, etc.instead, I call the company that the email references. I've be scammed before. Now, I don't trust anybody.

    I just got a message from them yesterday and I told them I knew they were fake and I was reporting them! I've seen Citibank alert before but just the way it was worded sounded so suspicious! I feel like my money is unsafe anywhere. I'm on disability and if these people stole from me I'd be totally done, this has happened before and it needs to stop. I had someone in Hollywood California drained my account, not $80 and they took it, It could've been worse, Citibank now asking if anyone had my account number and access to my card. I don't know who they managed to get my number! Not Good
