Complaints & Reviews

Additional money deductions in loan payment

I'm writing this in disappointment, I have been informed with the customer care executive through call several times, that my Personal Loan amount is not auto debited where it should be by every month of 5. But still, I don't see any changes happening every time I'm Paying it manually, and for the COVID 19 issue, I have not opted for the Moratorium but for last two months the money is not been deducted again. I have other loans which has not giving any issue without informing anything they are doing the work correctly except with Standard Chartered.

I don't want any moratorium and there is no one informing about the procedures for the rules and we are running in busy with other stuff and could not look into this kind of issues every time. I could see Interest is added to my account.

I need this mistake should not happen in future and immediately clear by debts for the past months as well, I don't want that to be added to my principle balance anymore or any further deductions.

Credit card

I avail 2 credit cards from my Standard Chartered bank, one Visa platinum and one Master card. Both of these cards have expired, Visa in December and Master Card in February this year. Despite multiple calls, complaints and escalating to different levels, they have not been able to deliver new credit cards to me.
It's quite frustrating that a bank as renowned as standard chartered is unable to fulfill the most basic of requests and have failed to keep their promise of delivering the cards multiple times.
I want to escalate this to standard chartered international to highlight the extreme incompetence of management in Pakistan who leave their customers to the mercy of call center agents without any means to get proper attention on the issue.

I transfer my money to my account in MCB Bank Karachi from my personal account in HSBC Oman.
MCB Bank don't have direct contact with HSBC Oman and so my money is transferred via Standard Chartered Bank (intermediate bank).

Every time I transfer the funds, it is quickly deducted from HSBC bank account and a Swift code is issued to me; however funds reach to my MCB account after long delays of 4 to 5 weeks.

MCB inform me that they transfer the funds to my account on same day as they receive them; however Standard Chartered Pakistan keeps the funds in for almost a month to earn interest on my money which in my opinion is illegal, unjustified and unacceptable. This is my hard earned money and Standard Chartered has no authority to keep this money for earn interest.

I have request SC Pakistan many times to stop this illegal and ugly practice and transfer my funds on same day as received from HSBC Oman.

This time I have transferred OMR 5, 000 from HSBC Oman on 29 August 2019 to my MCB bank - and again the amount is deducted from HSBC but has not reached my MCB account. I suspect that Standard Chartered bank will try to use this money on this occasion again.

releasing of car loan

I had requested release of Car Loan on 13th June 2019 & SC Bank had deducted all the money required for closure of the auto Loan on 13th June 2019 itself. The Customer care had told me that within 3 working days Car Loan release SMS will get you on your mobile number. Till now i had not received any udate. I called the customer service number many times to get the car loan release update & every time they are replying back you will get it cleared within close of working hours of that day. The same reply is providing every time & they are failing to provide any feedback on what is the real issue of providing the clearance.

credit card

I have been a satisfied priority account holder for 7 years in Kenya. When I moved to Abu Dhabi this year I opened a new account, and transferred $100, 000 in order to retain the priority status and I applied for a credit card. 3 months later I was informed (after asking ) that my credit card was declined because I was too old - although I was promised earlier that it wouldn't be a problem.
I am 67 years old, in good health, I work as regular staff for an international institution and I have net monthly income of $10, 000 that goes into my SCB account.
Refusing a credit card because of age is ridiculous and discriminatory, and the communication around it unacceptable. I'm going to close this account.

illegal credit card charges

I have a secondary credit card for my wife as an emergency card which is hardly ever used. On the 19th of May 2019 I went online and saw that the bank has for the first time charged me an additional AED 525 card fees on the same account, which was charged on the 6th of May 2019. When I requested to have the card cancelled and cost reversed I was blackmailed by a Mr. Jaganathan that if I keep the card, they might reverse the charges, but if I cancelled the card I would be liable to pay the charges. Mr. Jaganathan then also closed the complaint himself after throwing down the phone in my ear. During our call he was hostile, evasive and arrogant, as is the norm from my experience over the past 8 years for telephone staff of Standard Chartered. So as I cancelled the secondary card, it would effectively mean that, as the charges are paid in advance, I would be paying for services/benefits for a year for a card that has been cancelled and will no longer be in use. From any perspective this is fraudulent and illegal. Since then I have made numerous phone calls to resolve the matter, and have been lied to numerous times about call back which never happened. Staff remain arrogant and condescending.

overcharged bank interest

I am writing to lodge a complaint on the interest charges that Standard Chartered Bank(SCB) Malaysia has slammed on me and to request the board to look to this unfair and unreasonable treatment by the bank. 

Timeline of the event is as follow: 

22/9/18    SCB called and informed that I have insufficient fund in my Current account to clear a cheque of RM260K. I told the bank I have sufficient fund in my Saving account and

                 will do an internal transfer by internet. On the same day and within minutes  of the phone conversation with SCB, I transferred RM260K to the current account. There was
                 no further options offered by SCB and I assumed everything was in order. 

23/9/18    SCB processed the RM260K cheque. 

30/9/18    SCB charged me with RM222.45 of overdrawn bank interest

My complaints for SCB Malaysia's unfair and unreasonable treatment are as follow: 

1) Why overdrawn interest is charged even though money was transferred to the current account?

2) Why did SCB not let the cheque bounce if the current account has iinsufficient fund?

3) Why did SCB not offer options when they found insufficient fund in the current account?

4) SCB charged interest rate equivalent of more than 15% pa, I don't believe this is reasonable at all considering I have sufficient fund sitting in my saving account.

Provide unqualified service to their card holder

Standard chartered such a large bank but having a unqualified service for his credit card holder. I'm super disappointed!!!
I calling for request waive amf rm600, my report no: [protected] (staff name: alex)
The staff ask me to call back again after 3days for follow up this case, because waiting for approve. Why is it so troublesome? Citi bank can direct done it. Never let citi bank customer to call back for follow up the case. Citi bank will call for their customer to follow up.
Can you all see the difference???
So I continue request for waive my another card service tax rm25. Alex reject it because saying my card not enough spending. Ask me after spend rm200 only try call back to standard chartered customer service for request waive and it need take 3days and also not confirm it will be waive."you need to call back and ask, follow back your case"
Ok!! Again...3 days call back customer service to check yourself again!!!
Why soooooooo troublesome???
Today I call standard chartered for asking cancel my 1 credit card. The lady staff said :"miss, you have to make the payment of rm25 service tax 1st and call back to us for request for cancellation the credit card"
Again, why soooooooo troublesome???
I already mention i'm not in my country now, calling will be troublesome for me, I asking for other solution, like can e-mail?? Or other solution or any better suggestion??? But the answer still the same"you must call bcak and check yourself"
Why so troublesome??? What attitude this bank presence??? What a bad thing!!! Employee attitude is not friendly,there is no willingness to assist at all!!!

Standard chartered provide unqualified service to their card holder.

pakistan / customer service response

Dear sir/madam, i am client of standard chartered bank. I just booked my mobile iphone 8 on 06.June.2018...

delayed credit card amount reversal

I'm one of the card holder of standard chartered bank UAE. Recently i asked for a card closure letter and excess amount reversal service from the bank after being fed up with their service. As expected the back end staff were extremely lazy and are not aware of the standard operating procedures. The main problem is the banks poorly defined procedures and processes. There is no accountability whatsoever on any of the banking staffs leading to a question marks on the banks credibility. With this experience I am very sure that this is the same case across all its branches in world. This team is a bunch of headless chicken running around, clueless and trying to do something. It requires 10 email reminders and 17 calls and 10 calendar days for the bank to understand the requirement and then issue a closure letter. In this era of technological advancement, here we have a classical example of stone age banking with lazy, incompetent staffs. Although I have received my closure letter, the reversal cheque is yet to be issued. I have stopped putting in reminders and started praying to GOD as the only hope. Because I'm sure there will not be any response from these people.
