    Default Be real careful these days when you receive any emails

    Now adays, since internet is so much powerful, and today, I somehow received this Citi-Bank email asking me to click onto the link the update all my necessary details, this is a true professional scam job, the email and url even have the citi bank link, but one thing that stops me from going forward is that I don't have any Citi Bank account and that alerted me, so guys and gers, do be alert, always double check and don't just blindly follow what the email or any etc blindly. Even recently, Ebay also have been the scammer's ploy of tricking genuine users like me to click on to their fraud website, but luckily, I also didn't fall into the trap. Just to high light these cases to you ppls.

    Such scams have been going around for quite some time. The worst thing is that they make the site look so genuine, by linking all the graphics, etc from the original site. But once you enter your information into the bogus site's window, that's it.

    Nowadays, going by the jokeworld.biz exploit through IE, we have to be careful even when others forward innocent looking URLs.
