Consumer Complaint: My employer received a writ of garnishment on me for a credit card through citi bank. I did have a credit card in XX/XX/XXXX and possibly still owe the debt. However, the judgment is through XXXX XXXX XXXX through an attorneys office. The judgment date on the court document says XX/XX/XXXX but the order was signed XX/XX/XXXX. The card was last used in XX/XX/XXXX. However, the XXXX company could not provide me with any information other than it was a Citibank account. I offered to pay a settlement and they countered with a settlement I am not willing to pay. I was not notified in person, phone, or mail of this debt, only from my employer who received the writ in the mail. The statue of limitations should have expired in Arkansas. Also, the company has been unable to provide me with any information regarding my account with Citibank other than that I owe a debt.
Company: CITIBANK, N.A.
State/Zip: AR 721XX
