...report one of those oficial looking scam letters. Where do you report one to?
I got one this morning from "CitiBank".

email address was: CITI BANK ONLINE"

It said: This email is being sent by the citibank server to verify your email address. You must complete this process by clicking on the link below and entering your citibank debit/credit account number and the PIN number you use on ATM.
This is done for your protection....because some of our members no longer have access to their email address and we need to verify it.

To verify oyour email addres click on the link below.

Thanks, toolman
I do not even have a citibank account so I knew it was a scam.

I did a Google search on Citibank.
They had a form to report suspicious emails.

So I gave them the info. I could not forward it to them but did the second best typed it for them.
Funny it could not be copied with the copy and paste feature.

After I asked on here I got the bright idea to search for citibank and report it to them if I could. :-)

i figured you would be smart enough to know it was a scam , but it never hurts to warn folks as somebody else may come along and see , lots of old folks they prey on and some even get stuff like that in the mail and are supposed to add their info and mail it back, they get confused and go along , then their life savings is gone, it has been on the news alot up here lately, another thing they are putting a device into the atm machines and recording your info when you use it , or they stand beside you at the stores and talk on a cell phone while with the new phone with the video are viewing your numbers and sending them to someone to write down. it,s always the old , the poor , who seem to end up paying for this with their savings, ranks right up there with home invasions as far as im concerned , and the ones doing it should be given 5 minutes to get their affairs in order and make their peace with the MAKER, before they leave this world, sorry for the rant but i get really upset with these kinds of people.

Me too!!

Makes me angry.
I do not use an ATM ever,
do not have a PIN number threw it away.

I think the perpetrators should be locked up when caught.

yeap it's a scam.

Lenore your IP should have a scam link on your home page.

I use AT&T and it has a scam alert link on the AT&T homepage and in the email inbox both.

There is another scam going around from Shell Oil like the one you got and yesterday I got one of them supposed to be from AT&T and one Veterans Administration.

This came in on my yahoo email account, not on my IP mail account.
Should I report it to Yahoo instead?


Burrhead    Posted 07-24-2004 at 17:01:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
~Lenore I always report it to both accounts. I use excite and there is a blue zillion scams come thru it.

I have found that if I report them as a spam and scam both my AT&T account automatically blocks them from there too.
