Standard Chartered Bank Credit Card [Manhattan] — Exaggerated Bill amount / fraud

I saw my Account staement that is charged Rs 197.10 extra for no reasons , the statement does not show any transactions for this amount. When I spoke to the customer care , they said it may be some discrepency !

I would like to draw your attention to all those people who use credit card but never sum up the transactions to see if there is any discrepency or FRAUD happening in a tricky way.

This has caused me agony & lot of mistrust and suspicion on the regular banking activities.

I can provide the proof [I have taken a snapshot] of the statement that shows up on the website if required.

Standard Chartered Bank — offending right of information

Around two months ago an executive from standard chartered bank called me up for a new credit card. He took all possible documents from me and vanished. After a month a letter came to me stating that my application is declined. When I called up the customer care asking the informatin about the reason of the rejection they refused to tell any specific reason stating that they cannot provide information under the bank policy norms which is definitely a threat to my right of information as I must know the reason behind the rejection.

standard chartered / credit card — defrauding in bill amount

I have a credit card of standard chartered bank (Manhattan Platinum) and using it from about a yr. Till the time I was using the credit card and making the payments with late fee and interst charges every thing was fine with bank. On Month of May 2009 there was a outstanding of 81594.50 rupees, I received a call from standard chartered bank ( [protected]), regarding the payment. I asked him for the redemption of the points collected on my card which was 3904, he said me that it is possible if u make the balance payment which is around 77509.91 and he confirmed me that he has put a request for redemption and collect of cheque form my office. I made a payment of 78000.00 so that in 1 or 2 days also there should not be any difference in amount and nothing should be pending. After clearance of the cheque I received a thanks message for the payment. After that there was no message alert or no hard copy bill at the billing address. I was in the understanding that my card is alive. But on October 22 2009 I came to know there is an outstanding amount. I was suprised to hear the same and agin I received a bill at the month end which was showing a pending amount of 8755.90.

I ask the bank person how is it possible. the bank person replied that there was no such request / neither it is possible to redeem the points. I ask the bank person to go for a recheck. the bank told me that u can go for a settlement, which I never wanted.
Then I started digging for the same on november, when I came to Know that every time u talk to bank u should note down the reference no but u cannot confirm the statements whatever the bank has committed or whatever conversation u had, it whole and sole monopoly of the bank. Is this the way they treat customer an add my name in defaulter list.
From 15th november 2009 onwards every day I am calling up the customer care and explaining the same thing but nothing is been solved.
On 26th I had a word with a senior person of Bank (bangalore) she ask me of any written proof or any reference no for the redemption issue. I request her that she can go back to the record and check who had a word with me and who placed the request for cheque collection, then she can catch hold of the member who committed me, but she told that we cant get any such information.
Finally being fed up I agreed for payment what she said is 4900 and if u ask for collection it will be 4975 on the basis that the card will be made active, but again there was a twist that then u have to make your ECS facility active from your saving bank acount, I agreed for the same also and asked her to send a confirmation mail regarding the conversation she said ok. After 5 mins she called back again and said that she cannot confirm regarding the activation of the card.

How should I resolve this issue

Dear all concerned,

We have current account in Standard Chartered Bank,

We are facing tremendous problem in all dealings with Standard Chartered Bank, AB 17, Sector I, Salt Lake, Kolkata 700064, India.

For every dealings the Bank Manager and all the supporting staff are telling lies and harrasses the customers.

For openeing the Bank Locker we opened personal account in the bank, suddenly we found the fund in our accout is redecude. Upon enquiry they said as the Locker charge is increased so we have taken out money from your account. This was done without any notification and our consent. Additionally we were forced to go for an Insurance with Bajaj Alianz, which was absolutely unwanted by us.

Next, we were supposed to receive foreign remittance, which the bank was not doing, the branch said give us a letter, then only we can follow up. We showed them the relevant documents for the remittance but they refused to accept that.

Next, We want to send foreign remittance, they started harrasing by not accepting our Official rubber stamp and after passing of 3 to 4 days they said they for you filled up was not sifficient and you need to fill up another set of forms involving Chartered account etc.

The Bank is frequently blocking the TPIN number, on enquiry they say it is due to technical problem, and every time they ask us to change for a new TPIN number.

Many times we have seend frustrated customers are shouting in the Bank but not getting any co operations from the Bank Manager and the employees. Some save us by taking appropriate action to all the Bank staff otherwise legal action may be taken by us under the court of law.

The Bank Management are to be put under legal actions immediately for torturing innocent customers
