My wife's mom died in March of 2003. Citibank (and their strongarm collections department) continues to send letters to my wife, despite calls, letters, faxes, and legal proof of death, Citibank (and their contracted collection agency, Northland Group) continues to send letters to our address. Her mother never lived here. In fact, my wife didn't even live here (nor did we even know one another) in March of 2003. How they got my address, I'll never know.
I really wish they would take the hint and piss off. The woman died with very little to her name, and now the collection agency (WHO KNOWS SHE HAS PASSED ON) insists that my wife is responsible for paying off the account, and even goes so far as to offer to "settle" for "only" two payments of "only" ~$700 apiece within the next 60 days or they will take action against us.
I consider this not only harassment, but piss poor service.
