It sure as hell looks like a scam, but the web address is Citibank's real one...And [email protected] is their real domain for e-mails.

Maybe, Mr. chu-cheow just got here to America and hasn't quite mastered the english language yet.

e-mails can be redirected.... there were people doing the same scam with e-bay.... sending e-mails asking for bank credit card numbers and pin numbers.... just another internet scam.... I don't ever give any personal information over the internet unless I initiate the request.

The E-bay scam was quite ingenious.... It stated that in order to keep your account active... you had to give credit card information... all under the guise that the information was to separate real sellers from people posting ads and just taking money. Go Figure... but they sucked in a lot of people.
