What is "Phishing"?
"Phishing" is an internet scam whereby fraudsters send emails with the intention to collect critical personal and financial information. These "phishing" emails look genuine and appear to be coming from a legitimate bank. They always contain a link to a "spoofed" website asking you to provide an update to, or confirm, sensitive personal information and/or have a warning stating that your card/account has been suspended and that you need to click a 'secure' link to activate or restore your card/account.
How to Protect Yourself from Phishing?
Please note that the U.S. Government has in place sanctions against certain countries, related entities and individuals. Under these sanctions, Citibank N.A. is/will be prohibited from engaging in transactions that may fall within the guidelines of the sanctions and is compelled to reject such transactions and block the related funds.
Thank you for being a valued client.
Amid ongoing concerns about the Coronavirus COVID-19, Citi is closely monitoring the latest reports from the Local Health Authority and has taken a number of precautionary measures for the health and safety of our customers and colleagues.
I wanted to personally reach out and share a few of the ways we are here to serve you, our customer, during this time:
We encourage you to access your accounts from home 24/7 using Citi Online or the Citi Mobile App to check balances and statements, make bill payments, transfer funds, or find the nearest ATM. We've made a number of enhancements that make it easier than ever to manage your account digitally, such as the Citi Mobile token so you can easily make secure transactions anywhere. Watch out for scams related to Covid-19. Stay alert, and check out the detailed tips on our security page.
Our branch teams are available to serve you, as always. We’ve augmented daily cleaning procedures with the use of stronger disinfectant products on high-touch surfaces, have made hand sanitizers readily available, and are educating branch teams on best practices recommended by the Local Health Authority.
Should you need our support, we’re here to help. To simplify your banking needs, kindly note the following:
For Retail Customers: We have made fund transfers free via our mobile app. This is effective till Thursday, 30 April 2020. Instead of visiting a branch or ATM to withdraw money or request a transfer, we encourage you to complete your local transfers from the convenience of your home.
For Credit Card customers: You don’t need to visit a Citi ATM or Branch to pay your credit card bill. You can easily pay anytime, anywhere using your laptop or smartphone from your Citibank Account or even from your non-Citibank Account. Click here for easy instructions on how to pay.
We won’t stop here, we are also donating 0.5% of all debit card spends in the month of March to help with the efforts to combat COVID-19.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our customers and communities as needs arise.
