ABN Amro Bank UAE / Fraud and cheating!

1 United Arab Emirates Review updated:

Complaint Against ABN Amro Bank, Dubai UAE

Subject : Wrongly calculating interest

Type : Falls Credit Card Statement

I am very surprised to see the statement of account for this month. Actually my credit card amount payable was AED 1746.50, I paid AED 1700 through ATM machine. When I saw this month statement, I was fined AED 52 for the amount against AED 46 which I not paid. This is very surprising to see that interest has to be charge on the amount which I not paid. BUT YOUR BANK IS FINED ME rather taking interest unpaid amount. Same is done with my other visa card as well. You don't have the system of payment where (ATM Machine) I can full payment (In Fills). As a client I am punctual on making payment (always before 15 days of last date). THIS FINE IS NOT At all DIGESTIBLE FOR ME.

Hi my name is Dhara, I am very very very dissatisfied with the way ABN Amro Rewards work, they tell me to call on 1st of each mont to gain the rewards (tickes to Sky dubai ) between 9am to 6pm Sunday to Thursday, today is 1st of July and it is 9am in my watch i called up ABN Amro Rewards Number (04 3662242) i get to listen to an automated system saying that the lines are not yet open call during the working hours, i call up again after 5 mins (9:05 am in my watch ) the number is constantly busy i tried and i treid and i tried till 10:05 am in my watch) i could never get through the number it kept on comming busy then i called up the customer service number provided to me during the time of opening a credit Card (04 3080000), to complain about the issue they say that there is only one number and as of now there is some technical problem in that number and there is nothing that thay can do about it finally after a constant try at 10:20 am I was successful in getting through the Rewards number but then i was told that the alloted tickets are already over try next month My Question is that if there was a technical problem then how did the alloted tickes got over?? to tell you very frankly this is the worst bank one can ever deal with i have never been given such false promises before, the way ABN Ambo gives. God Bless to all the other unlucky card holders like me.

Thank You
Dhara Shah

I have to agre with Dhara and would like to say that I have spent hours on hold for making movie reseravtions on the hotline - 3662242. This is totally ridiculous and unacceptable.

We are 4 of us holding abn ambro gold credit cards and will definitely cancel asap!!! I will ensure that I send this complaint to Gulf news about how ABN AMBRO cheats its customers.

I have opted for e-statements for both my visa & jumbo cards which i generally receive before first week of every month.But still have not received for month of july-08..I am working in Dubai & my job requires travelling overseas at constant intervals.
Some times at places where ABN has no roots & we do the payment with our friends/family over in dubai..
Pls ensure to forward e-staements on time as its the best way for people like us...

The banks most of them in uae take undue advantage of their clients, and over charge them. This country, its really difficult to approach the court to redress your problems easily. Bulk of the residents are expatriates ((80%) who are already working and do not have neither the time or money. Now the scenario is worsened with high inflations, there is hardly any chance for them to have a lawyer to fight their cases. Lawyers are one of the most expensive in the world, by any standard. The banks in general are really happy with the current situations, because they know for sure that no one will have the wherewithals to fight them through a court of law and this is one of the reason, banks such as ABN and others are brazen. The law is real tough and its quite natural that you can end up in a lockup for defaulting a payment. Banks dont spare. Only thing they do is to have the offender arrested and let the poor person lanquish in the jail. When will someone really start thinking for the people at large, where the whole economy is commercially driven with scant respect for humanity. God save the people!. God save uae!. God save the poor expatriates from the bank sharks

Hi I am a customer with ABN AMRON bank, I was been cheated by the bank, I took smart cash the executive sold that loan and me offered 800AED Samsung gift, when I went to shop to collect the gift, actual price is just 289AED I was really shocked seeing the worst camera, I remember that the agent promised me 800AED, I spoke to two more guys from ABM AMRON bank, they told they can’t provide me promised 800AED gift, I am been cheated 500AED from the bank, the service form the bank is the worst I have ever, I want justice from the bank.

Note: all the conversation between me and Agent is recorded; please help me to get back the promised 800AED.

hi im marlene, i am very much disappointed with abn amro bank. im holding visa card from them for less than a year before. When i went on vacation last year i used my card to purchased my ticket and put it in installment. During this period, i paid my monthly bill ahead of time but i've been charged monthly for insurance i had never subscribed. Every month i need to call the customer service number for the reversal until the time im about to leave for vacation..i spoke to one in the customer care to verify the amount i need to pay to settle my balances after the reversal i had requested..then i paid the full amount he mentioned as my current balances..so im not worried to pay anything when i return from vacation..but i was very surprised that the bank keeps on sending me sms message while im out of the country following up to settle my current balances. until then i received my statement when i got back..the amount i requested for reversal was not reversed so they charged me for the late payment fee of AED 150..imagine that the outstanding amount is the insurance fee cost of AED 26 that i had requested for reversal before i leave for vacation in which they had confirmed to me that its already reversed. I am not really happy with their service so i decided to cancel my card. Everybody is right that they alsways have hidden charges and you'll always surprise for that. NO with AMB AMRO
