Barclays Credit Card / Misselling of priority circle membership

1 India Review updated:
Contact information:

I got a barclays credit card a a very fine day i was offered a premier league membership full of confusion and misselling, when i complaint about it they said they cant do anything and it could not be canceled and if u want to know more call our call center, its been a month i filed my complaint with the card division and haven't received a single call from there side, instead i have called them at least 4 times, still waiting for my grievance to be looked upon, i hav not seen such a poor service of a credit card of such a repute bank with full of misselling and with no one to look into customer complaints.

    I am writing this mail to you to let you know that I have experienced the same situation as with the Barclaycard Priority Circle. They have made me pay for the priority Circle membership but even after 2 months of the payment I have not received any communication from them. I have contacted their service centre but it is of no use since it is only a call centre. I have even written to their consumer grievience cell but there has been no response.

    I am sharing my experience with you in case you are intending to take any action against Barclaycard for this deceipt. I would like to join you to claim the amount back and also to file a complaint against their false practices. I intend to give a written complaint to their office in Mumbai say at Dadar. Further I would file a consumer complaint if no action is taken. In case you have been through the same gruel situation we can team up and demand a response.

    You can contact me through my email or on my cell no 9833244681

    Hope we can together put an end to this.

    i have been charged priority circle fees of rs 5000 plus service tax of rs 618 without my confirmation.and from last 25 days i am trying to get it reverced but nothing is been done regarding that..i have marked a mail at 10 times and also contacted their call centre number of times but no action has been taken yet.
    barclays i suppose is not at all bothered to resolve these issues as it will lead to loss of money.
    kindly guide me if something can be done because these banks have come to the country only to misutilize innocent customer's money.

    I am subrahmanyam using barcalys card (4339480133091239), on 17/07/2008 towards Barclycard Priority circle membership 5618 amount was billed, when I spoke to the customer care executive that, when ever your account will be sufficient fund, we will charge this amount, but it was not done so, and for that i have charged over limit fee and interest also. Almost i have paid Rs.3111 extra.
    Barclycard Priority circle in welcome letter mentioned that as a Joing Gift offer, Strolley bag will be sending you free of cost.
    As of today i.e 07/10/2008 almost 3 months later i haven't received this bag. If the priority circle service is like this, I can imagine the normal card holder situation.Previously I have sent a mail regarding limit enhancement on 26/05/2008, but i did not receive any reply form the bank.
    I am requesting you to please concern my problem and please respond to this.

    I have applied for barclay credit card in the month of march this year. After that few days later one currier boy came with my card in my office premises but he didn't delivered me the card by telling that the address which i have provided is wrong so he won't be able to hand over me the card. after that i never got my Barclay credit card. But later on i started getting messages and Phone calls in every month that i have due on my barclay credit card. When i never got my card then how i have due in it? After that Barclay people started scaring me by telling that they will refer my name to credit bureau. This bracly people giving me mental torture by sending messages and making calls on my mobile. They are not sending my Credit card and without sending it they are asking for money for the card.
    I have tried to contact them and explained them my problem but every thing of no use. Please help and tell me what should i do know

    The Manager,

    Respected Sir/Madam,

    Sub : Debited my Barclays Credit Card A/C without confirmation

    I am a Barclaycard holder (CARD NO: 4339 5155 4244 3644) was offered an invitation to priority circle membership which according to my understanding was offered FREE of Cost and never mention any charge being debited my account. More over he told me that they would be sending the details within 15 days and after reading the full details you can decide to sign it and send the form to their Mumbai office. But I did not get any mail from the Bank till the date.

    Now they have debited my Credit card account a total amount of 6741.60 (Rs. 6000/- as Priority Circle fee plus Service Tax of Rs. 741.60/-) and sent a statement dated on 19-Nov-2008 to my email id and through postal also. This amount is debited without any confirmation from the me.
    I replied to the on dated. 25.11.2008 for reversing the amount but there is no reply till the date.

    I have contacted the Customer Service care No. 022 6724 2222 and requested to REVERSE the amount. They wanted the information about my Card no, Date of Birth, Address and Mobile Number and told their Bangalore Customer care N0.41739811. I have contacted the Customer Service care No in Bangalore 41739811 three times. They are telling that they are unaware of this and they don’t have the provision to cancel this. Also they are not telling the official address of the Customer care service in Bangalore.

    In this regard I am requesting Consumer complaints officials should take actions against BARCLAYCARD priority circle on this issue.

    Please help me to reverse the amount from my account.

    Yours faithfully,
    Sreekumar.K from Bangalore

    I'm facing exactly the same problem like Mr.Sreekumar Krishnapillai.
    Now the Barclay's customer care does not take any resposibility and the Barclay's priority circle guys have trapped us in this trick.
    This is a very bad business esthetic and can't run for long. I am surely going to lodge complain in consumer court and will try my best to warn all my friends, colleagues not to fall in this trap.

    I would request the complaintboard to take some action on Barclay's priority circle.

    I had purchased jewelery worth Rs 23500/- in May 2008 and asked for converting the same to EMI. They told me that they shall intimate me which never happned and the due day of payment was 1st Jun 2008 i arranged for cash for other sources .but to my surprise the bill for the month of Jun the EMI was credited which i came to know when the bill came. When i called the customer service they told thy cannot do any thing and on continues calling from my side they said they have taken my request and shall revert back the issue was put on hold till Jan this year till this time every month they used to charge the EMI installment and it used get adjusted with my payment which i had done earlier but when the entire amount of 23500 which was to paid earlier got adjusted with emi which were charged leaving behind the interest component. Now they call me every now and then bother me all the time and threatening me to refer me to the hot list whereby i will not get any loan. Even i wrote Mail to officer like Mr Nikhil Joseph at at but no response from him also .iam now fed up with there attitude i don't known whom to talk whom to write the behavior of the customer service representative takes to my nerve very arrogant and indiscipline .Please do take Barclay's card even if they give you please return it .Iam a GOLD CARD customer still this suffering .
