The Foundation for Taxpayer & Consumer Rights paid a skywriter to etch part of the social security number of Citigroups CEO in the sky over Manhattan, to protest Citi's lobbying against new consumer privacy legislation.
"Citigroup has gotten off pretty easy for advertising that it protects peoples' privacy, when in fact it has been not only sharing information among its many affiliates, but also spending $4.6 million lobbying in the first half of this year on this bill," Court said. "Their customers have to know that all those ATM fees they're paying are going to work against them. Citigroup has to face the fact that if they keep this up ... there's a good chance that one day they may face a boycott."Link Discuss Next post
