<b>Dear Citibank Customer</b>,
<p> We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to
<p><i>The login attempt was made from:<br>
IP address: 173.97.087.24<br>
ISP Host: cache-89.proxyserver.cis.com</i></p>
<p> By now, we used many techniques to verify the accuracy
whom you are dealing with. The system is called CitiSafe
the most secure Citibank wallet so far.</p>
That's a pretty nice bit of dumb-user engineering. Couple of spelling
mistakes in the actual phishing pages (wget + less = wonderful), but
otherwise quite well crafted. I'd swear I even see a browser URL overlay or
similar to give the impression of a different site to the real one.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
