Are you getting calls from the number 859-283-8071, and now you want to know who it is? This is a legitimate number that you may want to answer.
Citibank/Citi Card/ AT&T Universal Card
This is almost certainly the Citi Cards nag line because you missed a payment. When you call 859-283-8071 back, you will receive the following message:
Thank you for calling Citi Cards, servicing Citi and and AT&T Universal cards accounts. For assistance in English Press or say 1…
It’s not uncommon for a credit department of a reputable business to use a number other than their national phone number. Ford Credit, for example, typically calls from a 313 phone number instead of their main line.
If you don’t have a Citi or AT&T Universal card, they are probably calling an old number they have on file. In this case, you can just block/ignore 859-283-8071. If it were me, and I had a Citi or AT&T Universal card that was late, I would still err on the side of caution and log onto their known website or call the national number to make a payment.
