After disputing a rather large erroneous charge on my account Citi reduced my limit by 50%. The charge made my minimum payment increase.
Since I make the payment automatically, I don't check the statements every month. The card is rarely used so there was no reason to suspect this would happen. Even so, the extra $11 that was due was less than 30 days late. The credit limit reduction letter I received mentioned 4 possible reasons for the change.
When I called in, the rep couldn't tell me which one was the actual reason. Convenient since its impossible to dispute the unknown. The best part, I cant request a change to my credit limit for 6 months and yes, that includes when they do something less than fair or even honest. No requests for 6 months after any limit change.
But hey, they said I can call back in 6 months and they will look at it. Getting ready to buy a house.
This should help.......
STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! becasue the change
