Consumer Complaint: Good afternoon, I had a XXXX credit card account which I closed for bad customer service back in XXXX. In XX/XX/XXXXI started to receive calls from their Collections department that I owe money on the card. I was on the phone with different representatives from fraud department, security investigations, and disputed the charges that appeared on my card as I was not familiar with. Since then I am told that charges are either taken care off and are disputed or other times when I call Im told that I accepted the charges. I keep telling the representatives that I did not accept the charges and I want to have them disputed. Every time I call I ask for the representative name, id no. and department. Sometimes I get the name but the ID number I do n’t. Sometimes I get disconnected. Other times I get a fake id no.
Here are some of the times I called Citi and after long hours on the phone nobody helped me.
