There’s an email purporting to be form Citizen Bank, claiming that due to numerous incorrect login attempts, your online account might be restricted. If your account is restricted you will no longer be able to withdraw funds, but you can make payments.

This is a phishing scam out to steal personal information from recipients who received this email. The web site is a fake and uses content, logos and other creative’s to mimic the legitimate Citizen Bank web site. The site is currently blocked by most corporate firewalls and has a poor reputation on Web of Trust (WOT).

The link in the email looks as though it goes to the actual Citizen Bank web site, but instead it goes to american-ways.com. The site is a forgery and should be removed from Google’s index.
