Subject: Citi: PIN Update!Well, Wilbur, that's pretty interesting, isn't it. I mean, I don't have a Citibank ATM/Debit card, much less a PIN for one. You'd think a company like Citi-Bank would know what kind of card I possess, especially since I get billed by you people on a monthly basis.

Recently there have been a large number of identity theft attempts targeting Citibank customers. In order to safeguard your account, we require that you update your Citibank ATM/Debit card PIN.
This update is requested of you as a precautionary measure against fraud.NO. NO. NO. This isn't "a precautionary measure against fraud", Wilbur, this is the first step in perpetrating fraud.
Please note that we have no particular indications that your details have been compromised in any way.Wilbur, this is code for "please don't notify anyone at Citi-Bank that I am trying to steal money out of your bank account via your debit card".
This process is mandatory, and if not completed within the nearest time your account may be subject to temporary suspension.What the hell does "within the nearest time" mean, Wilbur? I mean, I know the American education level is horrible, but I'm willing to bet Citi-Bank can afford to hire people who can write in English.
Please make sure you have your Citibank ATM/Debit card and recent statement at hand.Wilbur, did you know that GeoBytes puts 18.104.22.168 in Shenzhen, China, in the Guangdong Province? Now isn't that interesting? The message comes in via a HamRadio Organization in California, and I'm supposed to send my account and PIN numbers to you in China??? I mean, I know out sourcing exists, but somehow, I don't think Citi-Bank will want me to send my financial information to you in China. In fact, I don't think Citi-Bank wants their customers to respond with their financial information to an unsolicited email.
To securely update your Citibank ATM/Debit card PIN please go to:
https://www.citibank.com/signin/citifi/scripts/login2/update_pin.jsp [links to 22.214.171.124/Verify/]
Please note that this update applies to your Citibank ATM/Debit card - which is linked directly to your checking account, not Citibank credit cards.Of course you don't want my credit card information, Wilbur. You'd have to leave a serious electronic trail if you used my credit card. And then, based on my credit card agreement, Citi-Bank would bring the forces of the law to your doorstep. Just wiping out my bank account is so much safer, as the responibility is mine, and you are counting on the fact that I can't afford to bring that level of pressure to bear.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter and thank you for using Citibank!I'm sure it's an un-monitored alias. Wilbur, that is the only true statement you've made. What the hell? Head of Citi>? Identity Theft Solutions, somehow, again,I think Citi-Bank can afford a proof reader before sending out crap like this to their customers.
