    Hello I received the above message in it's entirety with one exception it states to contact managent at Citibank 3775 bluff Hernando, Mississippi, USA SENT FROM A JOHN WILLIAMS

    EMAIL

    johnwilliams0040@AOL.com

    morrisike85@yahoo.com

    when I look up

    Citibank.com/locations.. it shows a Citibank at that location with the bank hours as well as a bank phone number however when I Google Earth the above address it shows a large house/? With a tag off to one side saying Sid's grocery store but I find no Citibank as listed on the citibank.com website at that location on Google Earth... I have responded to this John Williams through email saying for him to provide undeniable proof and legitimate information that I cant take to the citibank nearest to me to verify the contents of your email to me then proceed with the payment transfer. Thank you. hat he is who he says he is to me, before I contact the management or anyone else at that phone number or address on the citibank.com website.

    He responded with....

    What exactly proof do you need? Please don't forget to fill the requested information because it is very important to avoid wrong delivery or transfer of funds, ok..

    That is the entire conversation I have made no other attempt to communicate

    But I find it odd that citibank.com shows the above address as a real Citibank location
