Emirates NDB Bank
United Arab Emirates
I been client with BNP Paribas Egypt was the greatest services and since is been sold to Emirates NBD and the worst services start to be delivering, first I get my expire card issue 1 month after my card expire date which normally before was always delivered 2 weeks before expire date, and after 4 months using it is get suspended by VISA saying for security reason and till I'm writting this complain is been over 35 days still the bank doesn't print new card as they saying they got problems with the vendor (Supposed they mean VISA Corporation). I submitted many complains and after like 30 days of complain someone tracking my complain saying we get delayed in printing new card because of new system migration from BNP to NBD and because of problems with VISA, i asked any Deadline to when I could have my card received, the complain center replied they have no idea when could be printed is seem unprofessional for them to handle a complain. my advise for anyone have business in Egypt, don't ever open an account with Emirates NBD, and for whom still with them you better start having new account with different Bank.
I am a customer of ENBD bank since 2010 until recently to my full satisfaction. A week ago when I made a...

i got unprofessional communication from NBD emirates assistant and also didn't get the expected service from your side
i need solution for this problem as i will be in egypt for more than 3 weeks and i need to access my account .
Would love some feedback here. I took a personal loan from EmiratesNBD in 2007 and about a year later they decided to transfer the loan to Emirates Islamic Bank and the amount changed. Now first of all; I never authorized this transfer. (I checked with the banks to provide me a copy of my application form but they have no such record; I wanted to get those forms to make sure that there is no clause of such. Secondly, once the loan got transferred about 1 year of payments went missing and they bounced the cheque ... I resolved that issue later after writing a lot of complaints etc but until now they have not recovered my payments. I lodged this complaint with Central Bank over a year ago and that is when the bank superiors started to ring me and talk to me. I sent them all the required documents and after being active for sometime they have now dissappeared. When I call Central Bank they say the complain is under process (over 1 year now).
Can anyone advise on options here?
I approached a couple of lawyers and their advice was to sue after reviewing my documents but I have still not because I expected such a big name to resolve this on an administrative level ...
It has been over 2 years now since I am suffering from this now ... thank you EmiratesNBD and worse Emirates Islamic Bank who have not made this easier and hold a security cheque of mine...
Dissapointed, Annoyed, Shocked, Absurd ...
How can such a big name mess up like that and not do anything about it ...
I am regular in making payments (by force) and I really feel like I am paying for something that I do not need to for.
I applied for a No liability letter from the bank, they told me that it will take 10 days to process, But 15 days ago still I am waiting for a simple letter. So At least if you open an account with this bank, always ask them the policies in written, Its too much frustrating if you need it urgent even I have no liabilities/Credit cards with the bank.
To whom it may concern, Last year I change my job and it so happen that I have a personal loan from emirate...
During the month of October 2010 I tranferred AED5, 000 from my EmiratesNBD account to my AMEX card in Australia using the web tool offered by the same Bank to process the transaction on-line. Having used the on-line service successfully in the past, I thought that this should be a routine/easy/no problem transaction. Unfortunately I was wrong, the AED5, 000 'dissapeared': AMEX says that they haven't received the money and EmiratesNBD Customer Service after three months and at least 15 e-mails insist that the transation was susscessful but they don't show me evidence from AMEX that they receive the money and they refuse to contact AMEX to clarify the issue.
I had a personal loan from emirates bank before the merging of emirates bank and NBD bank. Then almost 3 years back I transferred my current account to ADCB bank, resulting, ADCB bought out all my dues/loan from emirates bank . Now after this big time gap, I am getting threatening messages from emiratesNBD to pay my loan amount which is overdue as per the SMSs recieved. I have got the photocopy of origenal documents from ADCB bank, these are copy of manager's cheque, a letter from ADCB for settlement of loan and NOC from emirates bank to ADCB, after receiving the loan amount bia cheque. I have circulated all these documents to various departments and offices of emiratesNBD, including their collection department office in deira as well as in sharjah, but till date I am getting all these threatening messages. I am quite helpless and in distress.
There is someone who has used my personal details and has applied for a credit card and he is using it for purchases under my name. I am in India and I have no clue of what's happening and the bank is calling me asking me to pay up. Doesn't Emirates Bank verify who they are issuing cards to. If Emirates Bank is reading this then know this - I am not going to pay any bills simply because I am in India for the past 3 years and there is someone out there currently using a card under my name which translates into = someone is using your banks money. Please contact me for further details [protected]@yahoo.com
THE WORST BANK EVER
Emirates NDB service is so far the worst service I have faced in the banking industry. I have a vehicle loan with the bank. As a part of loan opening I have submitted my friends detail as reference.
The unprofessional staff has updated the reference details as the main customer’s details and the main customers details and calling up my friend for all bank related details. The worst part is that my friend knows everything about my accounts. This is a legal issue where my personal details being shared with a third party.
I have spoken many time to the customer service regarding this and they have verified all my details and still have not done the require changes in their systems and my friend is still getting calls. Due to the frequency of calls my friend is no longer a friend of mine as he suspects me to have purposely done this.
This has been going on since January 2010. How hard is it to verify details and update customer’s details?
I went to Emirates Bank in Sharjah today to receive a clearance letter for my credit care to show my credit card has been cancelled. I was asked to pay dhs 200 to get a clearance letter. When I asked the lady (Bindu Joseph) to show any statement from the bank indicating that this amount is entitled to be paid by the customer she refused to speak to me. She, at one point alleged me of an Emirates Bank employee as she felt I had more knowledge about their internal process. She was VERY rude and had no customer service skills. She asked me to leave her desk and that I needed to speak with an operations manager. I requested her to speak with an operation manager as I have waited three hours in queue before I could speak to her.
She then had a word with to her branch manager who in fact tried to prove that it was Emirates Banks policy by showing personal banking policies and procedure. I said to the lady I was referring to credit card and not personal bank and was told that they are both linked together. I was given two option; one was to keep quiet and pay and second was to leave the bank immediately. I decided to pay the money regardless of the fact that the service was pathetic and I was not convinced. However, Emirates bank could only provide a no liability letter stating that I had no liability with the bank. I stated that I could have proven this myself by showing a credit card statement with zero balance. However, I did not receive any help and the branch manager starting to make a mockery out of me with laughter through his colleagues and friends. He then walked away with pride, ignorance, and a guilt which he will never surpass.
I agree with a lot of the post here about the complete incompetence and arrogance of Emirates bank employees. They somehow in their utter stupidity charged another client's check for 1500 AED to my credit card. How a check gets taken from someone's credit card account alone is a mystery, but the most ridiculous part is that I don't even have checks with them!! I spoke to one Mr. Yakoob Mohamed who found the check, knew it was from another account and only refunded the 100 AED processing charge and refused to help anymore after that, saying he was "only doing this as a favor and to stop calling him about it." Now I am starting the complaint process over again. I know it doesn't sound like much money, but these people have no education on customer service and accountability. WAKE UP EMIRATES BANK!!!
Has anyone been called up by debt collectors from their UAE banks and been told, perhaps in a not-so-nice tone, to pay outstanding balances on their credit card bills?
Do you want to tell your story to a journalist in UAE? If so, please email me at [protected]@thenational.ae
*****Please see the below string of emails sent June 16, 2009 to Emirates Bank, Mankhool branch to understand their complete incompetence. These emails were sent to both, Chaminda W: Branch Operations Officer, and Abdul Rahimi: Branch Manager*****
My name is Michelle, I work for #####. I have been instructed by my employers finance department to talk to you.
Here is what happened with my international money transfer:
3rd of June I filled out the form to transfer my entire months salary from my Emirates bank account, to my Wells Fargo bank account in the USA. 6th of June the money left my Emirates bank account. I have not seen my money since (It is June 16th). I have been speaking with Abdullah at the Mankhool branch (Head of Tellers) and he has not been able to help me.
This is a very urgent matter. All of my bills are late and I now owe over $200 USD in late fees because of this. This is also affecting my credit rating in the United States. I would hope that you would compensate me for your errors. I am in no position to be paying late fees like this because of an error on your part.
Attached is a form that Abdullah gave to me last week, for your reference.
*****I called the bank after having received no response. I talked to 2 people who promised to call me back. (Keep in mind I've been doing this now for 3 days... after actually getting in touch with someone in the bank, being promised a call-back, receiving no call-back, and then calling the bank --- with no response. I even visited the bank twice in the last week, only to be told I would be called back.)*****
This is a gross neglect of your customer base and highlights your incompetence as a financial institution. I was told I would receive a call from Chaminda before 1pm... I made Chaminda promise to call me back, twice. It is now 1:30, with no call. I have called the bank, your phone number, and Abdullah's phone number repeatedly to no avail for over 30 minutes. I have been told over 10 times by Abdulla, that he would call me back since Thursday of last week. He has not EVER CALLED ME BACK ONCE.
It has now been 13 days since I filed my money transfer --- it is a disgrace that you do not even know where the money is.
You have lost my money, my entire month's salary, and I want it back immediately. As of now I consider it stolen. You can be sure there will be severe repercussions for your neglect. I expect you to immediately divert your attention to this situation as you are meddling in my finances to a degree that is unacceptable. I am accruing late fees everyday that you neglect me, and my credit score in the US is being impacted. I expect full repayment for these fees that I have suffered on your behalf. You will no longer have my business, you can be sure.
This is completely unacceptable. Everyone I know, and many whom they know will hear about this.
Dear Ms. Michelle,
Our payments department has just now confirmed once again that the payment has gone through successfully. Kindly arrange to fax the swift copy to your bank in US to investigate if there is any issues from their end. Our payments department will send another tracer to the bank today in US stating your claim of Non receipt of Funds.
As advised to you on the phone, kindly fax the swift copy to the US bank and investigate if there is any issue at their side. In the mean time we will get back to you with the tracer message sent today.
This is the answer you should have given me last Thursday. I asked Abdullah to make a transfer trace on THURSDAY... And you're just now sending it out?
Actually today's tracer will be the second sent from our banks side. The first tracer was sent on 14-06-2009 by our payments department which " Wachovia Bank" has failed to respond so far. The first tracer message is attached below for your reference.
Are you being serious?! “Wachovia Bank” is not my bank. My bank is Wells Fargo, I even gave you the bank routing number on the transfer sheet, to ensure you’re sending to the right bank. You are sending the trace to the wrong bank... That is why they are not responding. Look at the attached sheet I sent to you earlier today. It says “Wells Fargo”right on there.
*****It is now 3pm and the bank is closed, and you can bet that Chaminda went home with no concern for the fact that her bank has lost my entire months' salary. I do not look forward to having another round of this same run0around game tomorrow. This is complete and total incompetence, like I have never seen.*****
I have some loan from Emirates bank and i am paying it regularly, i changed my job and got new visa when the...
My credit card was closed by the bank. i had paid the crdit card in full and infact paid an additional aed 10 just to make sure i had no problems. i also called the bank to confirm the recipt of the payment and the closure of the card. this happend about 6 months ago. now i receive a sms stating that my card is overdue by AED 19.41 and to make a payment to avoid legal action. i was asked to call +[protected]. but the number is never reachable.
Last July 2008, I received a sms from a certain Ali of Emirate bank Collection Dept, Dubai threatening me that they will file police charges against me due to my irregular payment of carloan. I am very surprised to see this message because as far as I am concern I have given them PDCs and I have enough money in my checking account to pay my dues. Just imagine the stress it gave me and Im on my 7th month pregnancy! Only to find out that they are not posting my cheques against my account hence the overdues! To cut the story short, I just paid in cash the overdues and just waited for the return of my cancelled cheques and call their attention to not commit the same negligence again because its very inconvenient for me.
5 months had passed.. I already gave birth and now planning to go back to my home country for good...Upon checking my account, I have now again 5 month overdues!!! meaning they did the same thing again and now they are telling me they cannot find my cheques!! They asked me to go back and forth again to their collection dept on to the branches only to tell me i have to pay again in cash for the 5 month overdue and it will take time for them to locate the cheque!!! Are they mad??? I have done my part of issuing the pDCs and making sure there's enough funds to pay my loan..All they will do is post the PDCs and get their payment - and they cannot do it??? Now the next question is where did my cheques have gone to...I will not pay my dues in cash unless they give me back all the supposed to be cancelled cheques...
If I am just somebody who would want to hide from his loans, maybe I should be treated badly..But I want to pay my loan and arranged for it to be paid...And this is how they will treat me...I have set this up because I want to avoid the inconvenience of going back and forth to bank..now that's what they're asking me to!!!
Worst bank ever in my entire life!
I deposited $59k in the Emirates Bank in Dubai. The money was stolen out of my account using a forged signature. The bank has 1. Refused to honour its obligation and refund me the money. 2. Refused to provide copies of the documents used to steal my money and 3. No senior member of the bank staff has ever bothered to contact me.
Dubai has no banking ombudsman. I wrote to the central bank and they have not even bothered to answer my letter. I have attempted to engage four different lawyers, none of whom want to represent me against a potential or actual client.
I advise anyone thinking of depositing money in Dubai not to - your money is not safe.
