Reader Eric was looking at his credit card account activity when he noticed something odd. No, it wasn’t an unauthorized charge. It was advertising.
I just thought I’d let you know that I noticed that Citi is now putting ads on my “Recent Activity” section on citicards.com. I am really shocked that they would do this. I know many banks put ads/offers on statements but I am shocked that they would put it in there as to make it look like it’s my account activity.
We Googled your issue and found a guy who was irritated enough to figure out how to get Firefox to remove the ads.
Is this type of advertising appropriate?
