REMINDER-9



Dear Customer Service Executive



I am in receipt of your reply to my Reminder-8 and I have gone through the contents of your mail.

I once again repeat for the sake of clarity that I have availed your loan offer for INR 800000 in

12 installments of INR 7120 ( This includes interest component of INR 5440. First of all I had never

Applied for a Platinum card , my gold card was upgraded to platinum card & at the time of conversion

I was told that EMI’s of loan amount will be converted to the Platinum card . I fail to understand

Why & with whose permission it has been converted into a single Transaction – How can you arbitrarily

Do so without the consent of customer ? I do not buy this arbitrary decision taken by you when you

Have charged intrest for 12 EMI’s . You have committed a mistake therefore , you take the corrective action.



I had never accepted the(SLOP) of 3 months offer given to me , you think customers are fools ?

They will repay the loan of 12 months EMI’s in 3 months EMI’s by paying intrest for 12 months.



I am repaying EMI’s of INR 7120 , 7 EMI’s I have already paid & remaining 5 will also be paid on due dates.

In my monthly statements you are charging interest on over due Etc etc. in spite of my follow up

Nothing seems to have moved at your end.

I am pained to know how customer are treated by you . I work for a company where customer satisfaction in

Above anything & we have got JD Power first prize for customer satisfaction



Finally I am advising you to set right the things failing which I will be compelled to resort to legal course

Of action .



Hope good sense will prevail

REMINDER-6

Customer Service Incharge



Further to my Reminder-5 , I have received Card statement Showing a debit balance of INR 67744.79.

I am not only shocked but equally concerned how customers are being dealt by HSBC . I am trying to

Settle the issue by paying all legitimate dues , perhaps this is being taken as my weakness . In my last

Five reminders I have very clearly mentioned my grievance by giving all facts & figures – I regret to note

That no one has even bothered to read & provide help .

I am making last attempt to make you understand issue pending as on date :



1- I took loan of INR 80000 to be repaid in 12 EMI’s of INR 7120 (INR 85440 in 12 months)

2- I have paid 4 EMI’s of INR 7120 last being on 1st FEB 2009, therefore , I have repaid total

amount of INR28480 leaving a balance of INR56960 .

3- In card statement a debit balance of INR65195.75 is shown whereas it should be INR 56960.

4- Loan of INR80000 was given in 12 EMI’s & intrest for 12 months has been charged in EMI’s

On what account Finance charges of INR 2268.48 and Service tax of INR280.38 has been charged ?



I want to clarify once again that I have to repay INR 56960 in 8 EMI’s of INR7120 & not a penny more.

Therefore for the last time I am advising you to rectify mistake at your end and confirm the status to

The undersigned, failing which I shall take the matter to Grivance cell & claim damages for harassment.



Please reply to enable me to take further course of action.



Yours Sincerely

Arvinder Deep Singh

Reminder No-3

Customer Care Executive

This has reference to my previous mails on this subject (attached below for your reference)
None of the issues raised by me have been responded in any of you mail, perhaps you have
conveyed what you had to without even reading my mails.
I am pained to know a Bank of your stature treats its customers the way I am being treated .
Any now , I am once again advising you to look into the grivances raised by me & if you are
not in frame of mind to understand PLEASE consult you superiors for advise .
To summarise I put forward the following brief for sorting out the issues at your end :-

1) Please note out standing amount on INR80000 loan works out to INR 64080
after adjustment of 3 instalments paid by the undersigned by due dates .This has been agreed by
You & I have recd a statement of account of My previous Gold Card showing
Total loan outstanding as INR 64080.I fail to understand as to how an amount of INR79262.19
has been shown as Outstanding Debit in my Platinum Card Statement . You need to check & confirm
the above to the under signed immediately.
2) Therefore , I am supposed to pay 4th EMI of INR 7120 by 2nd February , which I agree to pay and
Thereafter remaining 8 instalments on monthly basis-this is what was agreed while accepting this loan of
INR80000.
3) In addition to 4th EMI of INR7120 , I am required to pay INR15161.92 towards puchases after adjustment of
INR117.06CR . Hence total payment to be made by the undersigned works out to INR 222 81.92 by 2nd Feb 2009.

Please confirm the above as I have not recieved revised Platinum Card satatement ,in order to deposit INR 22281.92
by 2nd Feb 09.I am running out of patience therefore, I request you to please make the necessary corrections at your
end by transferring the correct amount from Gold card to Platinum Card.Incase you are not in position to do so please
let me know sothat I can resort to other available options.

Yours Sincerely
