    Citigroup's Corporate & Inheritance Fraud: A rare Jewel‏

    24th DEC 2013
    Dear John Murphy, Vice President, Citi Security and Investigative Services, London.

    The letter below is a response from your colleague – Deborah Hammer, Vice President, Client Liaison, at Citigroup, USA.- It was a passionate and sincere response to the damning inheritance fraud at Citigroup. Please read how respectful and articulate she responds at the inheritance fraud at Citigroup. This is a direct opposite of your arrogant letter when compared to hers (view attached letter).

    John, you ought to be ashamed of yourself and your absurd approach towards those orphans and widows that had greatly been wronged and millions of dollars stolen from them at Citigroup.

    Deborah Hammer’s response, work/career passion is as follows:

    “Dear Mr. Bello:

    We are in receipt of correspondence that you sent to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The CFPB forwarded your communication to Citibank's Executive Response Unit on July 3, 2013 and your inquiry was referred to me for my review and response.

    I was sorry to hear of the loss of your father and I hope you and your family will accept our deepest sympathy. Please know that in situations like this, we are committed to managing our clients' accounts responsibly to ensure that accounts are liquidated legally and properly. Unfortunately, I am unable to research your claim without the name of your father, his account number(s) and/or his social security number. Could you also provide your brother's name and the dates of the disputed withdrawal(s)? It would also be helpful if you are able to provide the location of the Citibank branch where your father banked. If you have a copy of your father's bank statement, that would also be helpful. This information can be forwarded to my attention at the email address:

    In order for us to provide you with the disposition of the funds from your father's account(s), we need an original copy of his death certificate and the document that evidences that you are named as the Executor or Administrator of your father's Estate. The disposition of the funds can only be released to the individual named as the Executor or Administrator. If he passed away outside of the United States, we also need documentation with the Consulate seal evidencing your father's death. Original documents can be mailed to my attention at the below address. Please notify me by email when you have sent the documents so I will know when to anticipate their delivery.

    We appreciate your expeditious response. Upon receipt of the requested information, I will be able to continue researching your claim. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you with your inquiry.”

    This is what I call an intelligent bright woman; she is a woman of conscious with an IQ of a thousand intelligent men. A rare jewel at the notorious Citigroup. I would personally recommend she take over as the new Citigroup CEO as the Group is in desperate need of persons of integrity.

    Unfortunately, Deborah’s passion to help unravel the inheritance fraud at Citigroup was to be curtailed by the top Citigroup management, preferring to stick to J C Murphy’s arrogant-dubious-fraudulent letter (view attached letter).
