Consumer Complaint: In XXXX, I contacted Sears regrading my situation and told them that we got affected by hurricane Harvey and would like to see if they can assistance us in any way or shape. I told them that we are living in FEMA assisted hotel and my employment got affected by hurricane Harvey, so the customer representative at the time told me that he will try to help us. Upon checking in their system they told me that they have Fema program going on with which I wont have to worry about my both Credit Card payments until XXXX and I can start my payments at the somewhere around at the end of XXXX XXXX and that ‘s what I have been told couple of time. Then recently, I got call from Citi bank and the customer representative told me that my accounts have been past due from 60 days in which I informed him about our previous conversation that I have with several customer Representative. So he told me that the program was for only two months which I was n’t informed about and ; So I try to justified my point tell him that I was informed about about the program was till XXXX XXXX and I can start my payment around end of XXXX XXXX so he told me that he was sorry about the misinformation.
