Do not rpely to this email.

okay, first off, unlike this guy (and obviously me) i would like to think that citibank uses SPELL CHECK to catch words like “veerify” (bought one too many vowels there, bud) and “clic” (for the record, i just cut and pasted this out of my email so don’t feel i’m to blame for the bad typing, although for those who suspected it i understand why). but SERIOUSLY…just go to the link, put in your ATM and PIN? reminds me of a scam that they pulled on the elderly on the simpsons, where grampa replied,

“oh, it’s not a scam…what you do is, see, you send them ALL of your credit card numbers, and if one of them is lucky, you in a PRIZE!!!”

and what’s all the more amusing, i don’t even OWN a citi bank atm card. or a citi bank credit card. in fact, i’m pretty sure i still owe them money. so, if you DO have citi ties, and you got this mail, and you fell for it, i wish you all the economic misery in the world…

(unless you’re over 60 and therefore just gullible to this type of thing; so kramer, you’re excused).

it’s called mental darwinism, folks – learn it, love it, live it…
