I applied for a Mastercard at Allied Bank about 3 months ago. After waiting for the Bank's reply for over two months, I called the bank to find out the status of my application. I was told that my application was disapproved but did not give me any reason. My income is about 20 times larger than an average employee in this country, and I also owned my own home. When I complained, I was told that I have to deposit some cash in their bank as a collateral. I felt that I have been discrimated because of my age. As of this date, Allied Bank never gave me the real reason why my application was disapproved.
