Re: Beware~ CITI scam

Most (all?) of the legit places that I deal with indicate clearly that they will never call you on the phone nor send you an email that requires you to verify or divulge any info. Seems like an easy way to stay un-scammed is to just consider these phishing emails as humor.

Re: Beware~ CITI scam


geesh, I do not even bother to look at my accounts.

I think there might be 40,000 messages in an e mail account that I will never ever look at.

If something is that important they can CALL ME ON THE PHONE!
