Who Is 866-535-9492 ?

866-535-9492 belongs to Citi Bank. They’re a debt collector reporting a collection account on your credit report.

This can mean 2 things:

  1. They’ve purchased your debt from the original creditor (such as a credit card company), and they’re now calling you to collect that debt.
  3. They don’t own the debt themselves, but are being paid to collect on behalf of another company.

The worst part is you now have a collections account on your credit report, which will be hurting your score. It also lowers your chances of being approved for credit (at least with good interest rates).
