From: Citicards <Bxxxxxxxxe@radiomexico.com> To: Fsteele <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: CITI_bank e-mail Veerification - email@example.com Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 12:22:17 -0500 MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain Dear_ Citi-Card _Members_, This leter was sent _by the Citibank_Online server to veerify your_ _E-MAIL_ adress_. You muust ctmolpee this pcosres by clicking on the link bellow and enttering in the litle winndow your citibank_ _Atm full card-nummber and PiN that you use on_the local ATM.

Note that the link is actually above, not _bellow_. Note that this wasn't even sent as HTML mail, using Citibank graphics and web design. Note that the spelling, punctuation, and use of "the little window" are so comical as to render the scam harmless, even if the recipient didn't notice the "@radiomexico.com" domain of the sender. Presumably, Citibank doesn't send a lot of e-mail out from that domain.

You didn't mention the spelling, always the first giveaway of the amateur spammer.
