Why Phishers Succeed

September 20th, 2004 | Tags:

If you have ever wondered which phishers succeed, have a look at this website which asks you for your: * Credit Card Number * The code on your signature panel * Mother’s Maiden Name * Your Current User ID * Your password

This isn’t a scam: it’s the real Citibank website for changing your password. (To get here manually, go to citicards.com and click on the “Forgot Password” link.)

At least the Customer Service representatives on the phone sounded indignant at the reference to phishing.
