SBI - Outstanding payments
United States

We had received a bill of Rs. 1171.80 in the month of Feb 07 for which we had paid cheque in favor of SBI. The same was collected personally by SBI personnel. then again in the month of March 07 we received a letter along with the bill of Rs.1602.57 due. Still, the same amount had been paid vide cheque in the bank. Instead of making the payment twice again we have received a mail saying total outstanding 875.34. Tell me now what is all this. We go to the bank, they tell us we have no idea about it you need to call customer care. When we call the customer care they tell us to provide the card no. and your four digit birth date. On providing the birth date, they are saying your birth date does not tally and hence the line gets disconnected and there is nobody to provide any kind of service. SBI should atleast make provision of somebody to talk to the clients directly without any stupid questions. Or even provide facilities so that we can go and meet somebody in person.

SBI Credit card - No purchases proofs for verification

I had two credit cards (bearing Numbers: 4317 5750 3782 1056 and 4317 5750 3679 8877 ) which I had returned after suffering a lot. The reasons of my dissatisfaction with SBI Cards are as follows:

1. Continuous phone calls disturbed me a lot. I have not activated or used any of my cards till I returned these, but I received some phone calls from SBI Card Person asking for outstanding amounts. I did not understand why I have to pay a big amount, where there is no purchase. I did not understand their intension.

2. No communication or statement was made till I returned the cards. My address, given in the form is correct but I did not receive any papers.

3. I have seen people who are using SBI card and have been suffered by late fine even after depositing the cheque in time.

4. I have intimated the matter though e-mail and sent the cut pieces of the cards to them by post but, no reply is received till date.

I, do not want to suffer more with SBI card. I want all the proofs for verification if I made any purchase.

You haven't activated your card and they ask for outstanding? Its hilarious! Now that you have decided to quit I think you should opt for a bank like citi bank where they have good customer care.

SBI Credit card - Don't ever do mistake of taking SBI credit card!

I am another person who got a very bad experience from this SBI people. I have taken SBI credit card 1 year ago and I have used this card hardly 3 or 4 times. But in September,2006 I got a huge bill of 28,000/-. When I checked the bill, I found that it was for some air tickets (King fisher and AirDeccan) booked by some fraud people, using my credit card number. I don't know how this happened. I haven't given my credit card details to anyone. It was completely a fraudulent transaction!!!

I was really shocked by seeing this and I called SBI customer care and I blocked my account. And told them the entire story. And I filed a dispute against my card misuse. But their response was truly cheating. Every day I used to get calls 5/6 times for the bill payment. I was fed up with this calls and filed disputes again for my card misuse (more than 10 complaints I have given for this.) I was really frustrated and fedup over this.

One day when I called up customer care, they told that "All the disputes are closed in favor of me". I believed them and I told them to send the hard copy of that. But I didn't receive any. Next time when I called them, they replied that "Sorry sir, all the disputes filed are closed against me". (Just the opposite what they told us before). So I have to pay the amount.

The same scenario repeated 2-3 times. I am not getting how these people are telling contrast things during every call... Last day I told them to cancel my card. Anyway I am not planning to pay for that...

More than money, people will value peace and mental relief. These people will spoil that very well. Even though its NOT at all our mistake.

Now I believe the biggest mistake that I have done in my entire life is - "I have taken that SBI credit card". And also I believe these SBI customer care is only for asking money and they are not ready to do any help for customers.

If anyone reading this, can suggest a solution on How to get justice in this matter, PLEASE help me out!!!

SBI Card - Given amount is not deducted

I m sorry to say about pure service of SBI credit card company.

I'm paying all the due amount of monthly installments but the monthly statement is showing the same amount of total outstanding i.e.28000/- from last five months. How can be it happen? Amount paid by me should be deducted from total amount. The monthly statement is showing unnecessary interest value and charges every month.

 2nd of Jul, 2007 by    0 Votes
I do regularly use the SBI Gold Card, even at the maximum credit limit of 80,000/- and I had also intended to pay my minimum due amount regularly. But I could never do that due to non-receipt of the statement. Due to which, I have been paying heavy amount in respect of late fee charges. Regarding the same, I have been regularly complaining to the SBI customer care but till today, in vain. Nevertheless, as a responsible customer, I have been quietly paying the late fee charges, inspite of very insulting and rude approach from the payment collection division of Delhi, specially ladies. Believe me, till today, I have not received a single printed statement at my residential address. I have always given an assurance of sending the statement at my residence within a week's time. It is very painful and unexpected. I opted for SBI Gold card by deactivating my other foreign banks credit cards with an feeling of encouraging our Indian product, but today I am repenting. If this complaint is taken as a casual complaint as one amongst the others, I am not capable of changing the system of whole SBI but it is definite, if majority of the victims gets created, one day it will definitely harm. I humbly request you that the heavy late fee charges which I had paid till today may kindly be reverted and at least now my request may please be accepted and statements from the date of activation of my above card, may please be sent to my residence address. For example, recently I spoke to Ms. Anita on 3rd may at 1.15 am and she assured that immediately she will e-mail my recent statement and also earlier statements will be sent to my residence address, till today that moment has not come. Even last week I requested your customer care officer of delhi, he assured me same as Ms. Anita but till today, in vain. Total non-professionalism and casual approach is really unexpected. With due respect to you, I request not to misunderstand but would suggest that your customer care officers and executives of payment collection division of delhi shall learn from the credit card division of other banks, who all has absolutely cordial approach and commitment towards their promises.

SBI CreditCard - Fraud & cheating!

I have been offered rs. 200000/- over draft free of interest for 45 days, when i took the cheque immediately they deducted first EMI, than next month interest for 36 months, as i refused to take and immediately returned and repaid the 200000/- in full. Yet the next three months emi was deducted and money was collected. Now bank has collected rs. 45240/- as interest from me for less than 45 days used there money. At least i presented my case 100 times to the banks collection agents/ officers/ call centers, but they continue to demand more and more money to be paid.

Since than they are going own using abusing /torturing me on my mobile/land line for further payment. NEVER HAVE ANYTHING WITH state bank of india OR sbicards IS MY SUGGESTION.

SBI Bank - Credit Card - Troubling regarding money i did not use

I had received a SBI card a year ago and i had opted for the statement to be sent to me via email from the 2nd month onwards. My request was activated and when i went to check the statement online it was not opening as the password i was provided was "wrong". I tried calling the customer care number for Sbi i.e. 39020202 but there is no response and it takes very long and sometimes the call is disconnected even before we speak to a agent.I have escalated the matter earlier but no one seems interested in resolving the issue.

Whenever my due date nears by i keep getting calls from some collection agencies who do not know how to speak and just dont listen to me or the problem i am facing. Every time i have to repeat the same story but when they need money they call up and hence i have not made any payments and as a result of Sbi's ignorance my amount due has reached 27000 without my knowledge which i am not going to pay ever. I want to bring this to notice and take care of such people who just steal money openly.
