Consumer Complaint: I continue to be harrassed and threatened by a person named XXXX XXXX at Citibank. I was a victim of identity theft over a period of years by a family member who is now dead. I have written numerous letters but they continue to assign various other debt collectors to harass me. I am a XXXX XXXX year old women who is quite ill from XXXX , and numerous complications. I can not sleep due to fear of these tactics. I have acquired identity theft protection from XXXX and XXXX, but Citibank continues to harrass me. I have reported the identity theft to the FTC. I will write another detailed letter to XXXX XXXX but I am currently terrified. I have sold my house to pay for as much debt as could possibly be mine. But, this card is not my debt, and I am so afraid of what will happen next. Surely, Citibank has other things to do besides terrify an older sick woman.
