Standard Bank / how can a closed account be in arrears

Review updated:

I closed my credit card on the 29th of April 2009 (and not long after my standard bank current account as well due to bad service). I still have a copy of the e-mail send to [Hidden Email] requesting to close my account together with proof that the card was destroyed.

Today, more than 5 months later, I receive a sms (of all things - no phone call, no statement for 5 months BUT an sms) stating that my account is in arrears, and requesting payment as soon as possible. If I have questions I must phone them.

Can Standard Bank please explain to me how an account be in arrears that has been closed since April this year.

    Just because you close the account doesn't mean you don't have to pay off the balance.
