Citibank-imitation phishers tout solutions to "identity theft"
Here’s another wrinkle today on phishing. I get an email from Citibank, or was it Citicards (where I have an Master Card account) titled “identity theft solutions”. Inside is a not very transparent attempt to get personal information. This one didn’t both to copy the trademark (which the Bank of America phishers do.)
The abuse department of Bank of America always responds to forwards of phishes, but I haven’t found that other banks (Wells Fargo and Citibank) respond.
