Web Site Security

January 18, 2007
Anyone ever had this happen before? This is new to me.

At lunchtime, I visited Citibank's Citicards Web site to check my balance and see if my Vonage and NetFlix charges were posted yet, so I can pay my card balance off.

The moment I arrived on Citicard's Web site, however, Firefox (my browser) popped a message on me that it had been reported that the site was being hijacked by fraudsters, and warned me not to enter any personal information (user name and password) onto the site, because it could be used by criminals. I retried three times and received the same message each time before I gave up. This afternoon, the message was gone and I was able to successfully log in to my account.

I'm not sure if the problem was truly with the CitiCard site, or whether it was Firefox being overzealous. Or whether it was due to fraudsters trying to defraud me by warning me about fraudsters. How fraudulent.

Better to be safe than sorry, I guess.
