    This is a story from somebody else .. no aunt of mine has died .. err.. yet


    My aunt died this past January. CitiBank billed her for February
    and March for their monthly service charge on her credit card, and
    then added late fees and interest on the monthly charge...the
    balance had been $0.00... now was somewhere around $60.00) I
    placed the following phone call to CitiBank:

    Me: "I am calling to tell you that she died in January."

    CitiBank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and
    charges still apply."

    Me: "Maybe, you should turn it over to collections..."

    CitiBank: "Since it is 2 months past due, it already has been."

    Me: "So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"

    CitiBank: "Either report her account to the frauds division, or
    report her to the credit bureau...maybe both!"

    Me: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"

    CitiBank:"...excuse me .....?"

    Me: "Did you just get what I was telling you.... The part about her
    being dead?"

    CitiBank: "Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor!"

    (Supervisor gets on the phone)

    Me: "I'm calling to tell you, she died in January."

    CitiBank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and
    charges still apply."

    Me: "You mean you want to collect from her estate?"

    CitiBank: ".....(stammer)"

    CitiBank: "Are you her lawyer?"

    Me: "No, I'm her great nephew." (Lawyer info given... )

    CitiBank: "Could you fax us a certificate of death?"

    Me: "Sure." ( Fax number is given )

    (After they get the fax. )

    CitiBank: "Our system just isn't setup for death..."

    Me: "Oh..."

    CitiBank: "I don't know what more I can do to help..."

    Me: "Well... if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just
    keep billing her...I suppose...don't really think she will

    CitiBank: "Well...the late fees and charges do still apply."

    Me: "Would you like her new billing address?"

    CitiBank: "That might help."

    Me: (Odessa Memorial Cemetery #### Hwy. 129 and plot number given.)

    CitiBank: "Sir, that's a cemetery!"

    Me: "What do you do with dead people on your planet?!!"

    Me: "Click" ( Hang Up )
