Citibank Doesn't Want Your Gross Punctuation Marks

Citibank Doesn't Want Your Gross Punctuation Marks

Sandra wanted to contact Citibank about a fee, and figured that contacting them using secure account e-mail from within their site was a good way to do it. When she tried to send the message, the system rejected it, telling her to remove any special characters. “What special characters?” she asked. Turns out the e-mail form didn’t like quotation marks. At least it wasn’t apostrophes?
