I had a Credit card (4477 **** **** 7012)  8  years back and dues to some reasons it was misuse / wrongly billed by someone and  I had discontinued it and asked clarification on the details ( which I did not get). it went for a long time and later i was in some family trouble that it missed out of my mind and years passed and no one contacted me hence I assumed it got resolved and closed.

Now recently from past one week I have started get calls from ( 011-45524601 / 011-48554832 Pawan & Kamal) collection / Recovery agents of your bank and Harassing me to make a payment of 81K appox. They have being calling my office board line abusing and using offensive words with my colleagues  to defaming my image in the office which is mental torture and harassment. Also, threatening me and my family for dire Consequence and defaming my social status.

I am not running away any where !!! I responds to their calls on my cell phone than why this harassment and mental torture ???  I and am ready to settle if any  genuine dues are dues are pending, provided, I get a details statement of the same to reconcile

 

 I have requested them to send me the details of the same for which they are NOT READY to provide me and information saying that this is a very old matter and they DO NOT HAVE any details ---Please tell me how can one make any payment without know for what is he paying?

First of all it is felt that the matter is hopelessly time barred for the bank.

As per various publications it is felt that this bank is a habitual offender.

The Supreme Court of India has decided cases involving the conduct of this bank.

As advised by Mr. Sharma record lodge criminal complaint with police.

Record all calls and keep the original memory card safely.

Let them also state that they do not have any details/statement………………….!!!!

 

Let your lawyer take over the matter and call this Pawan, Kamal, BM of local branch of M/s ICICI Bank, MD of the bank, Regional –Head of collection/Recovery of the bank in nearest police station……………court of law for threat, coercion, criminal intimidation………………………etc

Thru your lawyer YOU MAY LODGE A COMPLIANT WITH following and demand to cancel the license of the bank which has not corrected its conduct despite supreme court judgements.

Kumar has opined very well. Additionally, as per my understanding of the law, you must approach the Consumer Forum and get the requisite damages and compensation for the same.

Dear Madam, 

We are sorry to hear about your experience. Please send us your contact details at care@icicibank.com and our official will get back to you soon. Kindly refer '46135093' in the subject line. 

Regards, 

ICICI Bank Customer Service Team.

It is felt that the matter is hopelessly time barred for the bank.

Until or unless advised by your lawyer do not submit anything to the bank.

The calls are seemingly strategy of the bank to obtain acceptance from citizens.

 

icicibankcare has been intervening in threads however there qurists that have posted suggests that  once they engage with bank nothing is done. The bank again starts with same tricks and tactics.

 

You may update the thread if you engage with the bank.

 

You may now preferably deal with the bank thru your lawyer specializing in such matters and consumer cases/criminal law. Reiterate to the bank that it must withdraw and call back your name from list of bad customers of the bank, CIBIL, EXPERIAN, EQUIFAX, Master card Negative Feedback list and all recover/collection agencies/bureaus and supply you the copy of all communication of the bank supplied till date (including the one sent to this Pawan and Kamal) and latest one calling back you name by accepting that bank was at fault in sending your name.

 

As per RBI guidelines issued by RBI, BCSBI, IBA are mandatory on banks and have having statutory force.

 

Banks have to maintain the list of its collection and recovery agencies on its website.

 

You may check if this Pawan and Kamal and their phone number is listed by Bank on its website.

 

Bank should declare in writing that after calling back your name it shall not demand any other amounts and it shall not have any adverse effect on your loan taking ability in future.

yesterday i received a call from a lady from +91 4044305700 at 10:30 am -- I guess the Banks customer care---- she assured me that these recovery agents will not harass and call my office Landline, However, this harassment is still continuing .... Pawan ( recovery Agent) called me again in the afternoon and used un-parliamentary language and threaten me again and was not ready to listen to me 
 
 
Also the landline nos from which they are calling are NOT listed in your collection / Recovery agent list published on the net.( 011-45524601 / 011-48554832 Pawan & Kamal)

Kumar Doab (FIN)     18 October 2013

Record all phone calls.

Lodge criminal complaint with police, women cell, and include the name of MD/CEO/Chairman and CCE of the bank that has recently called you to confirm that the recovery agents of the bank have been calling you and now won't call again.

Take a crowd of well wishers and police to local office of the bank and make sure that they are given good beating of mind.

Submit a memorandum to BM (with a copy to police/SHO women cell), media, national Women's Commission, NHRC, and set a date within whihc bank shall beg apology in writing and admit its wrongdoings.

If still bank is adamant and recalciterant let your lawyer approach criminal court and get non bailable warrants issued against MD,BM of the bank...............
