When a scammer steals your passport
Citi Travel Protection is a travel insurance company which covers the costs of getting a passport.
You can buy a one-year plan for $20 a month or a two-year membership for $40 a year, but the latter is the best option if you’re short of cash.
You need to fill out an online form to buy a passport and pay a fee.
Citi’s website lists the following benefits: you get full coverage if you are at home and at least 5km from where you are staying, your passport will be processed by Citi before you travel, and you can cancel any time, but Citi only issues a refund once you’ve paid the fee.
You also get a “no questions asked” return policy if you ever have to cancel a policy.
This means you won’t be charged for anything if you don’t make a claim within two weeks of your cancellation.

The process took about three hours.
If you can’t afford to spend money on a travel product, this may be worth a try.
CIT’s website states that if you purchase a travel card online, you’ll receive an instant email confirming that your passport has been processed and you will receive a confirmation number when you arrive in Costa Rica in the future.
If it’s not there by then, you can always contact Citi directly to ask about a refund.
Once my passport was processed, I had it on my computer for the first time since leaving the US a year and a half ago.
I also received a notice from Citi, stating that my credit card had been charged, and that the card was being returned.
I decided not to cancel the card or use the credit card in the first place, as I wasn, however, not happy with the outcome.
When I called Citi to complain, I wasn
