[Resolved]  HDFC Bank Credit Card Division — Debited money from my account without my consent


Credit Card Division
HDFC Bank,

Dear Sir,

I was holding one credit card 3 years back which number was 5176 – 3510 – 0299 – 4592.
That card was sold to me on false commitment as I received a call from some Anjali (Persons name who sold me this card) and she said this card is free for you and you will also get one blanket after one month. She asked me the employer name, company name .position I was holding and all kind of verification. Then she said I will receive the card with in 10 days.

I received the card with in the said time but when I received the card I found one more credit card in name of MY EMPLOYER Alka Talwar. I was surprised!! Then I called up HDFC Bank then they said Anjali already left and I was helpless. This was the first problem which I faced but somehow I ignored that as that was manageable. By the way I never received that blanket.

Then I started getting bills for 65 rupees sometime 100 rs as life insurance and all .Despite the promise of your customer care executive that ,this card if free of cost I was surprised why they are sending me these bills. I again called up hdfc bank and then again they made some promises and no step was taken up.

Then it was really irritating and I thought of returning the card as these amounts were getting added and nobody was there to help me out and I called customer care executive that I am returning this card. They guided me to do that in cutting card in four parts and with an application letter you can send it to Chennai office .I did the same in the month of March 2006. (I have kept the photocopy of my application with me).Then I got a call in feb/march 2007 from hdfc bank about the credit card balance and I said the same thing to her that I have already deposited your card last year then she said ok fine Mam!! So your account is closed with us now.

Problem is now they have without calling me up or without informing me on phone they have debited 5,895.68 rupees from my & My husbands HDFC Bank account .I am really surprised how they can do it. Is it mean we don’t have any privacy if we have any account with HDFC Bank? Any time they can deduct any amount for any reason from my HDFC bank account because I have two account with hdfc and when I will call them up they will harass me with their harsh words. I called up HDFC card division in Delhi office and they were not ready to give me Chennai’s number.

Here question is of security also that how can HDFC BANK can give money from my account to someone else without informing me... as much I know this is a fraud-ism…

It really troubling me a lot and I am really very disappointed.

I hope HDFC will take an appropriate action as I am not ready to pay any interest for someone else fault. I believe they must have rounded up the compound interest of credit card and it’s really funny to pay the amount which I never ever used

I Hope HDFC will understand my Situation….

Subject: Mental Harassment by the HDFC Bank: Rajouri Garden – Credit Card Division

Dear Sir:
This has reference to the above cited subject; I am the regular Saving Bank Account holder of HDFC Bank for the past several years. I have used the credit card facility amounting to Rs. 21592.72 in the month of May 2007. (Statement is enclosed herewith)
In this context, I have already repaid Rs. 22, 400 (Twenty two thousand and four hundred rupees) to the branch. Regretfully, I have noticed some discrepancies in the Credit Card Statement. Now, the officials of the HDFC bank, have phoned me ([protected] at 1.20 PM dated May 30, 2008) threatening and using abusive language to pay the due amount immediately. I have no problem to pay the amount which is actually due. The amount produced by this bank is not based on the Rules of the Reserve Bank and the rate of interest announced by it to beneficiaries.

Evidently, But the behaviour of the officials of the HDFC Bank Division is not parliamentary and it has hurt me. I, therefore, call upon you to please advise the officials to be more humane in their dealing with the customers.
I am always ready to discuss and settle the matter on talking table.
Submitted for your kind notice and information, please.

Dear Sir,

M husband was also using the HDFC credit card . But we had alaready made thte settlement . But after the settlement
HDFC Credit Cards are just a way to con people. I was convinced to but this card by one of their Mumbai execs while I was working at my prev office...the taxes that they put on it is out of the box. and they just get multiplied for reasons known best to them. a min amount of 1000 rs per bill was added to my bill everytime which was agianst the promise given to me. Now that man who had sold me the card is untraceable. I then decided to suspend this card permanently. The HDFC mumbai collection centre called me up to pay my outstanding bill which has now reached to 35k due to their taxes. I told them to please suspend my card and give me a final amount which I can pay and i dont want ne more taxes after that, they said yes we will do it and convinced me to pay the bill for that month ie 3100 rs which i paid cos only aftr that they promised me that they will de activate the card. Later, aftr payment I called the helpline, they told me that I will have to send a letter with the card to the chennai off, but we will not stop the taxes till u pay up the final amount. I said- Will u guys gimme just one damm amount so that I can pay and get rid of your services. They said- No Sir, its through taxes only by which we earn our profits and we will not stop taxing you. So agian, there wre a false committment by their mumbai exec that aftr a final payment of 3100rs (my present min amt due) the card will be de activated and the taxes will be stopped and i will have to just pay up my final amount. The sad part is that my credit limit on this card ws 30k out of which i may have purchased stuff of 20k...till date i have paid them approx 40k in easy emi or in min monthy due bills. and still my outstanding is 35k...so all in all...for a Credit card of 30K..I have repayed them in form of their taxes worth 40k and still due their piling up of taxes..they still made an outstsnding bill of 35 k which m yet to pay. HDFC Credit cards is just harrasing their customers and conning them.PERIOD
I m a credit card holder in ur bank. U can see my records, i regularly paid my bill every month. Bacuase i use my card within my limit.
I blocked my card on 24.02.2010 because my card details was stolen by anybody and misused my card done online transactions. After that day I do not use card once. I blocked, because no can use it further. After that day I m looking that my card is used again and again.

Whenevr i contacted ur custmer care exec. after getting sms of any trasactions. but getting one type of reply 'don't worry sir, nothing to be happened. no trasactions i found ur card account'. But i always said this trasactions done it is fully fraud. cancel the trasactions. Now, i m saying that my word has no impact on customer service.
I do not getting satisfactory service from ur side.

I m looking here that my card is not in condition to use. because the fraud always use it. I m getting only sms and my heart beat increased. I hre saying that I feel i have the duty to call customer care again and again and getting same reply. but the fraud person use my card again and again. what is going on I cannot understand.

I m here asking u the question that is there any provision to cancel the card to stop misuse by anyone. what type of investigation is going on? why not the person arrested yet it police case filed ? i m getting more lose. I m getting mental pressure because my condition not favaour to pay over due payment those are disputed.
what type of game is playing in my life from ur side.

Another thing is saying that I paid my bill last month worth rs. 13000.00 which i used. But I got sms today that rs.17500.00 has been debited from my credit card account at 1.52AM on 02.04.2010. Please do something and keep me safe.

I m assure, U can consider the matter seriously and feel my felling..

With Regards
Sukanta Kumar Dass
