they left a message on my office number that could be picked up by anyone in the office. they left the information as to why they were calling and my secretary or anyone could have listened to the message.
i believe in new york state i would have to have signed the application to be legally responsible for the debt. i never did that which is why citi never responded to my husband's request for a copy of the application with my signature. citi never put me on any corresondence regarding the debt with my husband. the only thing citi did was put the debt on my credit report and i believe they removed it after the third letter to them.
thanks. i'll call the collection company and see what they say and have my husband contact citi again if i get nowhere.
i can't contact citi myself because they are actually my client so it's a bit of a messy situation for me. i may just get someone on the phone who either knows me or knows my name.
