Oh, look, a message from Citibank House, USA

How very British – having correspondence from “Citibank House,” somewhere in the state of North Carolina. It’s like the address for the British Broadcasting Corp. was simply BBC, Bush House, London, for many decades. The building’s street address, 30 Aldwych, was not needed.

There are lots of other clues that this is spam besides the silly address. That the Citibank Customer Service is writing from either an email in Japan, or from an email service provider GMX, is another. And what about that FUND name? In any case, this is a scam. Nobody would contact you about an inheritance this way. Delete such messages, don’t reply to them.

Greetings ,.

We have FUND here in your name. We have been able to confirm that the money was deposited here as your Beneficiary/Inheritance Fund. The Fund was stopped for about 3 years now but it has finally been released by the Treasury for processing and payment to you. Get back to me if you are still available on this email address for release details.

Have a blessed day. I await for your reply soon.

Yours sincerely,

Deborah Geist
