Phishing with Citibank Lures

Industry: Financial | Level: Strategic | Source: BleepingComputer

A widespread phishing campaign is luring customers of Citibank as reported by BleepingComputer and investigated by Bitdefender. Threat actors are spreading the phishing email attempting to capture the victim's CitiBank online login credentials and personal user information. The email urges swift action from the user to avoid account suspension with a link leading to a fraudulent CitiBank login page. Victim statistics for the campaign as tracked by Bitdefender has found targets are predominantly Americans (81%) followed by UK users (7%) and South Korean users (4%). An alternative CitiBank-themed phishing campaign occurred between February 11th and 15th, 2022 incentivizing victims with an opportunity to win monetary prizes that attempt to capture users’ personal information including “full name, address, age, phone number, and a scanned copy of their national ID card.”
