Cybercriminals were using a fake Citibank website to steal debit card and social security numbers in order to access bank accounts

An email scam, claiming to be from the American bank, included a link to what appears to be an authentic-looking website with 'update-citi .com' as the domain address.

The fraudulent site was tricking victim's into entering their online banking credentials and then request their personal information - the site was found on Wednesday and immediately shutdown.

Users are asked to provide their full name, address, date of birth, last four digits of this social security number, their debit card number and other card information that is typically requested like security codes, according to BleepingComputer.
