Bad customer service. I came there and the manager who looks like russian didnot prove to be helpful but was stern and he gave me the impression (tustin branch) that he thought i was lying. What is worse, i got illega l charges that i dod not make nor withdrew any upon. Surprise! I got this letter from the law firm asking me to pay for these charges. It used to be a credible bank, but now its credibility has been reduced to utterly despicable!!!! I won't even pass that bank again ever!!!! The charges came from barranca, irvine branch. I was given the impression that how safe is our money now in this banking industry. Terrible, terrible situation!!!
CITIBANK REFUSES TO STOP SENDING PREAPPOROVED APPLICATIONS FOR CC TO MY MAILBOX. I HAVE WRITTEN TO THEM TO STOP NOW THEY SEND 2 PREAPPROVED APPLICATIONS PER WEEK WAS 1! PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW CITIBANK IS 1 OF THE MAIN REASONS WE HAVE IDENTITY THEFT MAYBE A LAWSUIT WILL GET THEM TO STOP THEIR CARELESS PRACTICES!
I would imagine many business owners like me have struggled with reduced cash flow over the past 18-24 months...what more appropriate time to make use of an existing credit line? I have two Citibank credit cards including a Citibank Driver's Edge card that I've had for over 22 years. Never was late on payments; often had a zero balance, received rebates on two car purchases, and systematically established a very substantial credit line. My interest rate in 2007 was 9.9% Over the past year I reluctantly allowed my balance to climb, as my rate also climbed to 14.9%. In November I was late on one payment and..... "bang!"..... late fees, reduction in credit line, and slammed me with a 29.9% interest rate! Discussions/pleas with the representatives are like talking to emotionless robots. Gee, thanks Citibank, for your concern about the hardship your 20-year Customer is experiencing. As if 14.9% interest isn't enough interest to make? Yesterday I withdrew enough money from my IRA to pay off both accounts; frankly I'd rather pay the 10% penalty and pay our government extra taxes that allow Citibank to exploit and benefit from my hardship. Fortunately the economy is begining to cycle-back, my income is growing, and I vow to never to do business with Citbank again; and will take advantage of any opportunity I have to disuade friends, family, and clients from dealing with this huge corporate theif.
