Yesterday morning, I read a link on MSN called "Spoof alert: Online buyers beware." I hadn't heard the term "spoof email" before, it is where criminals send very official looking emails that appear to be from a reputable sight but are just a way to steal personal info. Last night I go in to my account dammit if I don't have two pretty convincing looking emails from and (ok, this one wasn't so convincing), both asking for info you shouldn't be asked for. The faux-Citibank email asked for my ATM and pin#... uh, I DON'T THINK SO! I checked both sites and sure enough, they were fraudulent.

Rat-bastard criminal spoofers.
