Citigroup Paying $18 Million for Overbilling Clients
On January 26, 2017 the SEC announced in a press release that Citigroup Global Markets has agreed to pay a monetary penalty to settle charges that it overbilled investment advisory clients and misplaced client contracts. According to the SEC: "at least 60,000 advisory clients were overcharged approximately $18 million in unauthorized fees because Citigroup failed to confirm the accuracy of billing rates entered into its computer systems in comparison to fee rates outlined in client contracts, billing histories, and other documents. Citigroup also improperly collected fees during time periods when clients suspended their accounts. The billing errors occurred during a 15-year period, and the affected clients have since been reimbursed."
