Hi Sherry,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Never pay someone to send you money. I'll repeat: NEVER pay someone to send you money. It's always a scam.
Unclaimed property is handled by the state, not the federal government, so there's no reason that the federal reserve bank would ever contact you about unclaimed monies. The federal reserve banks process transactions but do not contact consumers.
The NY Comptroller's website allows you to search for free to see if anyone is holding unclaimed funds in your name. If there is, there is NO COST to you to collect it.

If you want to know if Citibank specifically has any bank accounts in your name, call the customer service numbers listed on your website. But the person who is contacting you is not affiliated with Citibank.
