Unfortunately, we are unable to process a fee reversal
to your account. Your account has been assessed
$33.00 for a sustained overdraft. When an account
remains overdrawn for 7 consecutive banking days, a
$33.00 Sustained Overdraft fee is assessed on the 8th
day and then every 4 banking days thereafter as long
as the account remains overdrawn.

The fees assessed to your account are in accordance
with the Citibank Statement of Fees. The Statement of
Fees is located within Citibank’s Account Rules and
Regulations, which is distributed at the time of
account opening or during a bank conversion. All
modifications or updates are disclosed to you 21 days
prior to implementation through a statement mailing.

I have neither a Citibank bank account nor a credit card through them. Strange that they don't use my name anywhere in this courtesy notification; just my email address. Guess I better follow that link and input whatever info they require in order to give me access to my account and keep it from generating a new $33 charge every four banking days.

I hope you report it to Citibank.

It is "Attempted Fraud" and hurting their carefully created, paid for and nurtured good name. I think if they can trace the sender, or set up a dummy account to trap him, they'll try and if successful use their considerable leverage to get 'the book' thrown at that person.

I have been receiving a number of those lately. Most cases are similar to yours, i.e., I don't have an account with them. In a few instances, where I have some type of account, I had been initially notified that they would not contact me by email, phone, or any other means, other than direct mail. And even in that case, they would not ask for sensitive information. I have also received threats of losing "my domain name" if I didn't respond. The only problem is that my domain is maniro.com and the one I'm in danger of losing is maniro.net or maniro.org or even maniro.us.... Maybe I'm just more aware of the scams going on because of the Katrina disaster, but it seems as if there has been an increase in fraud attempts recently.

That happened to my mom. She got some paypal e-mail saying there was problems with her account and she needed to update her credit card information. She called Paypal and they sai they never sent anything like that. She happened to look at hte URL and it said www.paypai.com. She almost didnt notice the i instead of the l. Scary stuff.
