Scammers are using increasingly sophisticated methods to trick people into handing over personal information.
Citibank customers were targeted by the address bar scam
The latest con uses a fake version of a web browser's address bar to hide a bogus site set up to collect Pin codes for cash machines.
The address bar stays in place and could be used to steal information about other sites too.
Security experts said users should be suspicious of any e-mail that asks them to verify confidential information.
So-called phishing cons have become increasingly common recently among tech-savvy criminals keen to steal cash from gullible users by making them hand over sign on or account details.
Most phishing attacks involve an e-mail that purports to be sent out by a legitimate organisation, such as a bank, that asks users to enter information on a special site.
Anyone following the instructions will unwittingly be handing over details to conmen who use them to empty the account of cash.
Often the fake websites are difficult to spot because they do a good job of reproducing the website of the company they are impersonating.
Now the Anti-Phishing Working Group has come across an even more sophisticated attack that targets Citibank customers.
When users click on the web link in the e-mail of this latest attack, the site they are taken to detects what browser they are using, suppresses the real address bar and generates a fake one to take its place.
This fake browser bar shows the real web address of the firm being impersonated rather than the address of the scam site the user is actually visiting.
"The biggest problem you have when trying to fool people is what appears in the address bar of the browser," said Dave Brunswick, technical director at Tumbleweed and a member of the APWG.
But, he said, this attack removes that problem.
The address bar even acts like a real part of the browser and will direct net users to other website addresses that are typed into it.
The website also fakes the appearance of the webpage code used to create it to make it look more convincing.
One of the few clues that it is a fake is the fact that it does not show a locked padlock icon for the supposedly secure web-browsing session it is supporting.
The grammar and style of the original e-mail is also slightly suspect.
Mr Brunswick advised people to be suspicious of any e-mail message that asked users to supply key login or personal information.
"The idea is to be cynical and ask: 'Why would my bank be sending me this e-mail?'" he said.
There were 60% more phishing attacks in February than January according to the APWG.
