I know most of you are savvy enough not to enter credit card info into a return email, just thought I would let everyone know that there is a scam similar to the PayPal one.

The C2it (Citibank) scam is very official looking with the right graphics and tells the receiver their account is on hold until they confirm their card and other information.

The email traces back to a hotmail account.

I received the fraud email today and had to phone citibank to get an emai address to forward it to as they had no contact email on their site. If you get one you can forward it to <snip>.

I believe there is another one floating around at the moment purporting to have come from Paypal requesting verification of CC details. It is always best to double and triple check any email requesting sensitive information.
