    email from cbi?

    Has anyone ever gotten an email from the CBI? I did this morning from cbi@cbi.iq in response to my email about Warka Bank status but they ask for customer name, amount and account number. This has raised warning flags and I'm thinking probable scam. Any ideas how to check if the email is valid? I can't see who should be in the "from".

    checking header info showed it was sent from cbi@cbi.iq but couldn't see info about the forwarding or who sent it back to cbi. ip address was for Oslo Norway Teknograd AS which looks like a tech solutions company.

    Don't think I'll be replying to the email....

    I've been thinking that the longer this go-no-go malaise with Al Warka continues, it becomes more and more likely they'll be vulnerable to CYBER hacking.

    It looks to me like an attempt to fish for your banking information. Don't answer it. CBI will probably have their own network based somewhere other than Norway.

    for some reason the signature of who sent the email got mixed up under part of my original email:

    Qismah Saleh Ali
    Acting Director General
    Banking Supervision Office
    Central Bank of Iraq

    Have not been able to verify who the person is...and too leery to reply with my account info, balance etc

    Found a list of members of board of directors for cbi. Qismah S Ali is on it in the specified office. I am going to email him personally to verify the response to my email. Will update when i know more.

    further looking has found the ip address for cbi.iq is also in norway, so it looks like their website is hosted there. The list of board members I got yesterday has their CBI email addresses as well, not just the cbi@cbi.iq I replied to Qismah's email address listed in the board members document. Will update if I get a response.

    Warka emails came from Jordan
