Is it Fiduciary Suicide to Give Our Reserves to Profitable Firms such as Citibank?

It was reported that a sum of $35 million provided as wage subsidies to 32 commercial firms had been returned to the government. Apparently, these companies do not need money from our reserves. Another 29 companies also reported that they do not wish to receive further wage subsidies. No amount has been stated or how much they would receive had they not declined. Why are there no background checks carried out before large swaths of money are given away?

CITIBANK CLOSED MY ACC EVEN THO I MAINTAINED THE MINIMUM SUM

"Citibank has officially become CITISHIT. When citishit decides to close a banking account, all information of it will cease to exist anywhere on your online banking. No records, no indication of a closure and account simply disappears like magic... Only way to know is to call Citiphone, and cards center will insist to help you becos they won't see that you used to have a banking account. So you have to do some useless verification & explain the situation before they finally understand that they can't help you and transfer you to the banking side (despite telling them upfront you would like to speak to the banking side)

UNFAIR CITIBANK IMPOSES 8% CURRENCY CONVERSION FEE FOR LOCAL WEBSITE PURCHASES

I would like to share with you a recent incident that I believe may have important consequences for your readers, and indeed all residents in Singapore, especially those who are active in online transactions on websites and apps. Recently, I made an online purchase on Groupon’s Singapore website using a Citibank Visa credit-card. I have already received the product I purchased, and the overall experience was fine. However, a little later when I received the latest billing statement, I was shocked to find that Citibank had imposed an 8% “Currency Conversion Fee” on this transaction.

CRAB IN DA BAG CHECKS UP ON CUSTOMER’S WORKPLACE AFTER GIVEN A BAD REVIEW

Who knew a simple review would blow out of proportion after the management of crab in da bag responded to her complaint by playing the victim and defending themselves with CCTV footage of their customer's experience. But the most low blow was that crab in da bag actually went to find out personal details of the customer and even brought up her workplace and said that they have always supported Citibank promotions and she should not have given them such a shallow review.

S’porean employee at the mercy of Indian FT manager in Citibank

The worst happened when my boss was asked to leave last year as management refresh alignment and they hired a new guy from India. This person has high self esteem and never take his subordinates feedback into consideration. What’s more, he treats people whom are below his rank with no respect. Now, he is targeting me as I’m the only local and non-Indian in the organization chart. He speaks and jokes loudly during meeting using only Indian language. He’s oblivious to others. He shouts and uses abusive language when he wants work done by me and my team.
