Customer Service

  1. A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February & March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and then added late fees & interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00, now it's somewhere around $60.00.



    A family member placed a call to Citibank:

    Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you that she died in January."

    Citibank: "The account was never closed and the late fees & charges still apply."

    Family Member: "Maybe you should turn it over to collections."

    Citibank: "Since it is two months past due, it already has been."

    Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"

    Citibank: "Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to the credit bureau; maybe both!"

    Family Member: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"

    Citibank: "Excuse me?"

    Family Member: "Did you just get what I was telling you . . . The part about her being dead?"

    Citibank: "Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor"

    Supervisor gets on the phone.

    Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you, she died in January."

    Citibank: "The account was never closed and the late fees & charges still apply."

    Family Member: "You mean you want to collect from her estate?"

    Citibank: (Stammer) "Are you her lawyer?"

    Family Member: "No, I'm her great nephew." (Lawyer info given)

    Citibank: "Could you fax us a certificate of death?"

    Family Member: "Sure." (the fax number is given)

    After they get the fax ...

    Citibank: "Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help."

    Family Member: "Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. I don't think she will care."

    Citibank: "Well, the late fees & charges do still apply."

    Family Member: "Would you like her new billing address?"

    Citibank: "That might help."

    Family Member: "Odessa Memorial Cemetery, Highway 129, Plot Number 69."

    Citibank: "Sir, that's a cemetery!"

    Family Member: "What do you do with dead people on your planet?"
