SPOKANE, Wash. - Keep a close eye on your mail. What may look like a bill from Citibank, could actually be a refund.
One KXLY employee received a check yesterday for $2,019.01.
"I was completely shocked," she told KXLY. "This is a credit card account that has been closed for years. It's not even a card I still have. The letter said Citibank had been charging too much interest on the card for seven years."
As a result of a mistake that Citibank discovered, some cardholders who were eligible for an interest rate reduction didn’t get one. Others people received less of a reduction than they were entitled to.
If you’re going to get a check from Citi, there’s nothing you need to do, a bank spokesperson says. The refund will come automatically in the mail.
Keep your eyes open.
