Sears Takes Customer Account Security 80% Seriously

On Wednesday, April 9th you received an email with the subject line “Get $25 From Citibank”. We recently discovered that the email we sent to you incorrectly contained the salutation “Dear Donna Robinson” rather than “Dear MATTHEW F”. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused and want to assure you that the email is a legitimate Sears card email.

Oh Sears. Well, according to Matthew F, at least the account number was his.

(Thanks to Matt and Alberto!)
