A rather elaborate phishing attack: create a 2-week web-based course for security professionals interested in working for CitiBank. On the second week of the course, ask them to execute an Internet banking transaction to receive a payment into their checking account. (That is, get them to enter their account number, routing number, and identifying information.) Take their money.
