~hrvster's review of Citibank customer service

GetHuman: So how would you sum up your experience for GetHuman's Citibank customer community? We'll censor any IDs, numbers, or codes and any inappropriate words here out of respect to the millions of other customers using this resource.
~hrvster: Citibank engages in "hide the money" scam with debit* promotional & rebate cards!*Citibank cards are used by companies to send a customer rebates & refunds. Citibank makes it difficult to impossible to locate those funds and restore them to their rightful owner- the customer. The "good thru" date on the card once reached drops from Citibank system and they make it impossible to retrieve the balance on the card. Citibank holds those funds in trust for the customer. Citibank violates that trust by taking those funds for their own use refusing to re-issue a new card and denying the card ever existed. This appears to be a fraud upon the consumer.
GetHuman: Let's quantify your experience contacting Citibank. On a scale of 1 to 5, how easy is it go get help on a Citibank problem?
~hrvster: I'd give them a three out of five for ease of finding your way to help.

~hrvster: I'd give them a two out of five on communication.

~hrvster: For that I would say five out of five.
GetHuman: And finally- any advice for other Citibank customers?
