I receive many calls from this number, I usually just ignore the calls. This morning, however, the phone rang at 7:02am. Completely uncalled for. I called the number back and it was the automated message for a "talk to girls live" 800 #. I googles the name I heard and it sent me to this site. This call has been followed by three calls within 5 minutes from " unknown caller, unknown number." After reading a number of the post here, I am quite confused; as I have no accounts with Citibank/Citifinancial, and I have not financed anything in a while.
I've been trying to get in touch with Citibank about student loans...haven't talked to anyone FROM citi, but missed 2 calls from this #, and when I called back, left an 800 # to get in touch with "hot local ladies." I'd say this is definitely NOT citibank.
I got a phone call from this number as well. When I called it back, it said "Connect now with exciting local ladies" and that's when I hung up. I don't think this number belongs to Citi anymore.
This number called me at 4:29 pm I never answered because of the weird area code. I called it back later and it was an automated system that said to connect now to local exciting ladies call 1800 373 talk! Weird. I do have a Citi Sudent loan out but I doubt Citi Group would be affiliated with such a 800 number!
this person kept on calling every single day even twice a day. I've tried to call it but it's nothing no ring no busy line. this person needs a life badly.
i've gotten this call a few times but every time it sounds like the same lady (heavy indian accent) but it's static-y and every time seemed to cut out when she mentioned who she was calling on behalf, i never knew it was citi (maybe) until reading posts at this site. also i did recently apply for a citi bank account.
Citibank outsourced the New Accounts department to an indian Phone Center group called DAKSH, they in attempts to save money Internet Phone Service that gives them a local (201) area code.
They verify all types of new accounts, Loans, Financing, etc...
I believe the folks that are conucting the calls have heavy indian accents & work from a home office, there was a lady & one gentlemen in the background coaching her thru the script.

Called my cell & my husbands cell. Left no message either time. Tried calling back, never got a response.
Called with a scam to raise the mortgage rate 1/4 % on a mortgage held by Citibank. Seemed upset that I wanted it to go the other way :) so I hung up.
got a call. garbled message as well. citibank was mentioned.
very recently had to close a citi account due to an unauthorized withdrawal on my acct.
CitiBank rep called from this number but I couldn't call back. He left a message to call him but left Citibank 800#
Called my cell 3x, garbled message w/return # incomplete. I do business with Citibank but NOT car financing. Was recently victim of ID theft while leasing a car. Will notify Citibank re this.
I got this call as well. I didn't pick it up and there was no voice message.
I posted here on this number before. I got it again today and it is the same thing as before when I called back it was an auto response stating magazine had expired and would call later to verify we wanted to order.
India call center for Citi-Financial
new casr loan too will not answer calls that leave no message
Just got a message from them too...said that they were from citi financial. She said her name was Nicky Wilson (with a heavy Indian Accent)..I tried calling citi financial and they have no one with such a name working in their branch (local)...I just applied for a new account but I know that this would be processed via mail and not by phone.
I received a voicemail today, very static-like and it was in reference to an application. I recently applied for a loan, but expected a letter by mail. This individual, female, prvided an 800# and left an application #. I could not understand the message due to the static. When trying to call back, the number dud not go through.
The number comes up as 201 373 8362 and the company is DAKSH.
2x now a person with a very heavy Indian accent calls from this number leaves a garbled message and hangs up
I saw the other posters say it may be from Citibank so I called Citi direct and they said they it is NOT them and to NOT give DAKSH my personal info????
WHO ARE THEY May 09th, 2007
I dialed the number and got an auto response saying calling on expired magazine orders and would contact later to try to get subscriptions renewed
...and I also just refinanced a car with them.
Called 2x in a row, no message.
I received a call on my cell phone during the middle of the day no message and you can't call the number back. I too recently refinanced with Citifinancial. Who can we report this to?
just got a call today from them just like the rest of you i just financed a car thru citi does any one know who we can report this person to it must be someone pishing for personal info and need to be stoped before some poor soul screws up and gives them what they want
Just received this call as well. Did not pick up call and no message was left. I too just financed through citi-financial a week prior.
I've received two calls in the past week from this number, one on my cell and one at work; neither of which I answered and neither of which left a voicemail. I also refinanced with CitiFinancial, so I'll answer the next time to see what the problem is.
I recieved a few calls from this number as well, I don't answer number I do not recognize but I tried calling back and the call ends. No one ever leaves a voice mail.
just finanved a car also from citi financial. never left a message and you cant call the number back. weird.....
Called today left no message. Searched Daksh on the web found an outsource indian callcenter run by ibm.
They called at almost 7pm...did not leave a message. I'm on the do not call registry...they've also called before. I too just bought a new car.
Got a call from this number but did not answer due to not answering strange phone numbers. Just financed a suv through citifinancial a week prior.
got another call from them today. have answered this number a couple times before but no one was ever there.
I got a call from this number AT WORK. The person left a message with a name and said they were from Citibank and gave me an 800 number and a reference number to call back. I called the number and it went through to citibank but the agent said they knew no reason for me to get a call and the reference number was not their doing. (I recently had fraud on my citi account and called them to fix it. that is the only time I gave anyone my work number. The customer service was horrible. it was someone in India.) The agent told me never to call the 800 number that someone leaves on your message. just call the number on your card. I am a bit freaked out that somehow after applying for a citibank account, someone at this number is getting our phone numbers and calling us. CALL CITIBANK CLIENT RESOLUTION DEPARTMENT AND REPORT THIS! HOPEFULLY WE CAN STOP THEM!!
Said it was CitiFinancial, could not understand anything else. I did just finance through them.
called my business cell. i did not answer as the id said nj.
Called my phone while i was in the airport. Didn't leave a message. I got a loan from citi like a week 1/2 ago... interesting.
Just took a call from this number. The caller did not announce who he was, so I abruptly cut the call off. I just financed a car through Citifinancial and after going to this site, I called my loan rep. He didn't know why anyone from Citifinancial would call, but did see it noted on my account where someone did try to call me. So, it does appear somewhat legit...
Has called 8 times in last four days. I do not answer "unavailable" calls. Phone rings 3 & 1/2 times and hangs up before machine kicks in. Calls coming day and night. Don't know about Citibank connection since we do not do business with them.
Whoever this person was they attempted to call 3 times in a row. I however do not answer numbers I do not know. No message was ever left. When I tried to call back, it said my call could not go through.

Citifinancial as well. Just financed with them.
Was at a movie when call came in, didn't recognize number or area code, so I sent it to voicemail. No message, just some fumbling noises and ringing from another phone in the background.
I also financed a vehicle recently through the dealership, and assume if it was a legitimate call it would not have come after business hours on a Friday evening, and they would have left a valid message.
But then I'm just paranoid like that.
Received call from 201-373-8362. Did not leave a message. I have also recently opened new accounts with Citibank. I would definitely NOT trust this number.
I got a call from the 201 number also and have just gotten a loan thru CitiBank. BE CAREFUL...I got another call from CitiBank and CitiBank came up in the caller ID. I asked about DAKSH and the CitiBank rep said they are NOT affiliated and not to give them any information. Your first clue is they are not getting verification from CitiBank, which they would if they worked for the bank. Exercise caution if the real vendor name does not come up in Caller ID, and the number cannot be called back. You CAN call back to CitiBank numbers!
Called during the day and did not leave a message.
This number is from a company setting up CitiBank accounts. I assume that they only call if you have requested a new account/service, or something like that.
This is from citi financial
No name on called id, and no messages left. I recently got a loan through citi financial as well.
Citifinancial as well. Just financed with them.
This number called me twice within a couple a of minutes, but left no messages. Interestingly, I also am working on a Citi-financial loan at the moment. Strange.
Wierd...I just got a car loan through citi-financial as well and this same number called me. When I anwser the call there was no one there..??
just called my cell phone during the day. i didnt answer and he/she didnt leave a msg.
i got this call about 6:00 pm. some guy wanting to verify information about a car loan i just took out with citi-financial corp,i ask him who he was and that is when he told me he was with citi-financial, i ask then why does my caller id say Dasksh?, he studdered and said that he could give me a number that i could call to verify my loan with citi-financial, i hung up on him and tried calling the number back, it would not go thru.

Called the past week, never leave a message.
Called my business line around mid-day and left a voice mail with no message. I wonder if this is the same goofballs that call from the 201-373-8371
number. These folks call about once a week it would appear.
i got calls from this number three days in a row. today this person left a voice mail with no message.
