In these calls I asked them to give me sometimes to think but they insist me that this was the last day to take membership. Due to network problem the call were disconnecting in betweens communication Finally the call was disconnected while verification was in progress .after 15 minuts near about 6.00 pm (ist) i had called your custmer care no [protected] from my phone number and ask not to given any membership and not to deduct charges, executive assure me that he had taken my complaint and no charges would deduct .after some days (near about 5-6 days )i inquired my outstanding it had shown about Rs 7320 and in this fees for priority circle was included. since then i had made many times complaint to custmer care and priority circle by my phone and even before and after preparing the statement for march but no action was taken only assurace were given so kindly do needful because it will reate a bad effect on barclay reputation and i felt it like a trap for customer . my priority circle fees was deducted on 03/03/2008 even after complainting on 26/02/2008 and after giving assurance of not to deducted fees by customer care executive on 26/02/2008

Barclaycard — cheating

Iwas charged around Rs.6000/-for the priority barclaycard in which 30 percent discount was promised on any purchase with this credit card. But I could not avail such facility. Pl. inform me on my cell [protected]
i was getting so namy calls to ake this offer for 2 months saying that they will provide 30 % discount on outstanding balance.when ever he used to call me i used to make sure is it on all the transactions. he said yes.
I was charged around Rs.5618/-for the priority barclaycard in which 30 percent discount was promised on any purchase with this credit card.
but now if i call up customer care they say its on only selected transaction. and they give other number to contact . where they wont receive at all..

Y the hell they give this offer if they r not sure what offer they r giving while convincing the customer.

its one way of cheating the customer, to make the use of that card.
I am the latest sufferer of the cheating done by Barclay Card People. I got a call last month from Baclays about the free membership of Priority Circle. So i agreed to join, but on the condition that there will be no chagres of any kind. BUt when i called the customer care the next day, they told me that they have charged Rs. 5600 (approx) for Pripority Circle memberhip. Since then, i am chasing them but of no avail.
Dear Friend,

This is Barclay Bank. Ek kahawat to suni hogi... "Unchi Dukan aur Phinki Pakwan".

Barclaycard — No service provided yet asking for money

As per the telephonic discussion held with one of your Agent (call center) of Delhi, I have made a payment Details
Rs 500.00 in Cash
Cards No: - [protected]
Name: - Nitin Hiraman Hinwar.
Credit card repayment receipt No: - C-38489 DATED 2/9/2008.

I request you to cancel my priority card circle fees of Rs 5000.00 charged to my account. The interest & other financial charges charged to me. Since I have stop making payment from last four months. Since I am taking the follow up of my case from pune to mumbai via telephone from last four months, so I request you to reversal of (priority circle card fees + interest+ other financial charges) as early as possible, so that I can use card in clean condition.

This is for your information
1) Since your call center people do not responded me properly ( i.e.: Cutting the phone, keeping it on hold for a long, do not pay full attention towards the case history, arrogant, no proper commitment),

Your phone number issues:-
1) Toll free number: - does not work.
2) Pune Telephone no: - does not work (I have to call to mumbai call center to discuss any issue (I am in Pune)
3) Receive SMS: - 6 a day for with number mentioned in it, that number does not work.

Please resolve my query as soon as possible for the better relation.

I am a Barcklaycard Times card holder and i have also been duped thoroughly by Barclaycard in the name of Priority circle membership. They said on phone that it is a priviledge offer from Barclaycard as they have completed one year in India and is totally free. they also talked about that i am supposed to get 30% cash back on anything i buy for a whole one year! later when i complained about my account being charged of Rs. 5000/-, they said that they have gone thru their audio recordings and that i have been informed about the charges! it seems quite clear that with all audio and other documents in their hands we have no reason to beleive that Barclaycard officials are all decendants of RAJA HARISHCHANDRA!

Dear Sir,

I am bringing this matter second time in your kind notice on last occasion a reverse mail was received by me assuring that Bank would take up the matter and do something in the customer favour. But I am sorry to say that I am repeatedly receiving the Barclay Account Statement with same errors and imposing late fee and other unjustified charges. I took this matter with your customer executive ( Ms. Deepa ) on phone but she shown her inability to do something. I resubmit the entire matter again that on the persistent pursuance I was agreed to take Barclay credit card as I was told that my credit limit would be Rs. 3 lakh with corresponding cash limit but When I received card I found that credit limit of credit card is just 15000/- instead of Rs. 3 lakh, this was first lie from the Barclay Representative. Secondly I was told by the representative that if I withdraw cash from any ATM Barclay associated bank, there would be no interest or any charges for first 45 days thereafter nominal interest charges would be claimed. (This is second lie). On 25.6.2008 I withdrew Rs. 6000/- from ICICI Bank ATM Delhi University through Barclay card. Soon after withdrawing Rs. 6000/- from the ATM, Rs. 508.86 had been imposed with various charges with in 2 days of withdrawal. (This is the third lie from the bank) I brought this injustice to the notice of bank immediately when I received the Statement. I clarified and asserted that I would not make the payment of these unjustified charges which bank had imposed. On 8th August 2008, I deposited a cheque for Rs. 6200/- ( 6000+200(as debit interest + service tax etc.) in good gesture on the part of customer in Sky pack at shakti Nagar Delhi. Even making payment on due date i.e. ( on 8.8.2008) Rs. 500 was levied as late fee and another statement for the period 19-8.2008 to 19.9.2008 was dispatched to me showing a balance of Rs. 1659.37/- despite the fact I had paid Rs. 6200/- vide cheque dated 5.8.2008 on 8.8.2008 Bank’s designated skypack.

Sir, as I have already clarified that I will not make any more payment against unjustified and unreasonable charges being levied on the customer by this way or that way. It appears that despite sending email, talking on phone, bank is not responding positively, nor is the Barclay bank reserving these unjustified charges; Bank is adopting arbitrary practice in banking Industry. It is quit clear that bank is violating all norms and rules. Because when the representative of Barclay bank makes promise is not kept up is violation of terms and condition on the part of the bank but not on the part of the customer. I am just highlighting those things which were told to me and are not being adhered to by the bank itself. By this email, I also want to say I am surrendering the credit card by breaking it in many folds I would like to bring to the officer concerned to look into the matter and reverse these charges immediately. . In case, these charges are not reversed, I would be compelled to bring entire matter to Consumer Court along with legal expenses would be incurred in the proceedings along with harassment expenses.

Barclaycard — Harrasement

I have this Card no.[protected] & I was very disappointed from the customer service. Some offers are offered to me regarding cash back & an amount of Rs 6000/- is being charged to my card. But I didn’t receive the hard copy of these offers. When I talk to priority services on 16th Dec 2008 for these hard copies, they told that they will inform me after 72 hrs about the decision. But till 26th of Dec there is no response from the bank. When I call again to the priority services on 26th Dec & told my decision of cancellation of these offers they told that there is no possibility of cancellation of these offers. They also say that recovery people are coming from recovery department for the recovery of amount that is charged to my card. How can I pay this amount when I didn’t receive the proper documents of these offers?
So I decided to cancel my Barclaycard & I cut into four pieces and return to the customer care department.
But till today the bank call me 3-4 times daily for the payment & told me the if I refuse to give the payment the recovery people will come for the payment.
I am a serviceman & having high BP

Barclaycard — Barclaycard - I am closing and going to some other you know which credit Card. (Starts with IC... Bank)

Dear Friends,

While giving the card these people send the person like elcticity. Now I told them 4 months back to close the card as they are charging monthly fees. ( Its a life time free card. Life is short for this Bank.)

Now the bill gone upto 2000 Rs. Still m a good customer and called them to send somebody to pick up the cheque and then close the car. Still no response. Today on care executive said we dont have the pick up facility. What the ... !

Less spending on employees and bigger bills for customers. is this is known as banking in your country then please dont show your face to India. Please.

Here bank person is treated as a friend and it will not happen with your bank.

Thanks but due to this experience I and my friends came to know the importance and quality of Other no.1 Banks in India. Everybody knows which Bank I am treating as No.1.

So thank you again for teaching us how a bank can be unprofessional.

Barclaycard — Demand of payment for unwanted Gift Item

Card No. [protected]
I took Barclaycard while i was booking airticket. when i got my first bill, some additional amount was charged for which i enquired customer care. the representtive told me that apart from purchase, the bill contains amount for one gift item which will be sent to you. i strongly denied that i have ordered for the paid gift. the representative told that you should pay for the actual amount of purchase leaving the cost of gift. i paid that. then again calls were coming that i have to accept the gift. i refused all the times, then too they delivered item on my residence in when i was in remote area of maharashtra where the signal of my mobile is weal many times. when i came back to my home, it was shown to me. i didn't opened the item and the same is lying as it is. I again contacted and written mails to them that i don't want a gift of worth 6500/= and please take it back. they have made me sick by calling at least five to ten times a day. I am honest towards my financial duties and holding the cards of other banks too and i am paying them regularly. for this too i have paid for the items i purchased through that card. but now they are doing excessive. therefore, it is my request that please take strong action so that this kind of cheating to honest customers could be avoided. i am feeling cheated and therefore, i am making such complaint.
