Standard Chartered Bank - India / fraud, then excuse we are sorry!

1 India Review updated:

I am here to write what had happened to me because of their unreliable, poor, dishonest bank service and I think that this should be brought to your notice since it can happen to anyone here who has an account in Standard chartered Bank, Banglore.

In brief it begins on 6 June /07 when I gave a A/C payee cheque of Rs 1200 to a person via cheque number 114682.On 8 june checked my balance and I was shocked that Rs 12000 was debited from my account through the Rs 1200 cheque called the phone banker but their response was not good/satisfying.
And even though I asked her to report this as a fraud she repeatedly argued me that it was Rs 12000 cheque.

I then went to SCB Branch located at Cunnigham Road,Bangalore. There they took two days to resolve the matter and they told me that it is their bank mistake.

Well if a reputed bank can do such type of blunder mistakes then closing a account with such a bank is far better. Also I would like to inform my friends/relatives to do the same. Who knows next time they make Rs15000 cheque a Rs 1.5Lac cheque.

What are the bank head officers doing ??

Simply sleeping. Customers beware of their bank or one day you will loose all your money.

    Same thing happened to me with SC chennai... Believe they are worst to do banking with. The customer care tried its worst possible tactics to prove that this is really a rare mistake.. But actually this kind of complaints are heard with standard chartered most often!!

    I am staying in abroad, i used to send money each month for my family in India CITI BANK. From abroad the money i send by Telegraphic Transfer (TT ). It used to take 3-4 working days to reach the money to my CITI bank account. But now a days it is taking 15-20 days to reach the money. I enquire and got to know a very suprizing thing.

    The Standard Chartered bank is the middle bank who take the money (which one i send from abroad to India) and diposit to my CITI bank account. Now a days Standard Chartered bank is not dipositing the money to CITI bank, even though they received the money from abroad bank. Standard Chartered bank keep the money with them for 1-2 weeks and earn the interrest on that money.

    Standard Chartered bank don't have any authority to do like this.
    That's why the are bull ### bank.

    They are the worst banks to bank with. A similar thing happened with my friend and they never setteled the account of my friend. Completely unreliable.
    They are not "Standard" & Chartered but "Sub-Standard& & Chartered.

    I worked with standard chartered for 4 months in the credit card department. Was the highest seller pan india. I resigned as was not getting proper incentives and the perks what i was suppose to get. Its a fraud bank. They not only cheat the customers all over the globe but also the employees who slog their [censor] for them.

    I am also having trouble with SC bank. My family had started a saving accounts when I was minor and when the account matured, SC started making all kinds of trouble. Since I dont live in India anymore, they need proof I live aboard and ofcourse my foreign passport is not enough. Sometimes they ask for a recent utlity bill with my address (so they can check where I live) and when I sent them, they asked for other documents. They even went as far as asking me to send my salary slip and house documents. Everytime its a new excuse and this has been going on now for almost 2years. Does anyone has some advice as to how I can solve this?
    Thanks

    Your passport is your proof of address.
    You have to file a case against them.

    Don't give them any extra information; they will use this against you.
    Standard Chartered Bank's business practices are illegal; giving them any confidential docs is risky.

    Standard Chartered Bank - unauthorized credit card charges
    Dhaka
    Bangladesh

    Please note that as per the terms as a corporate agreement we should avail free yearly charge for my credit card but it's so unfortunate that I have payed the charge 5000BDT but still have not received the return. I have sent a mail to Customer. Enquiries@sc.com but their respond is not satisfactory.
