“Service of this bank is very very very very poor..”

Service of this bank is very very very very poor….. ഒരു service request അയച്ചു ഒരു മാസം ആയിട്ടും മറുപടി ലഭിച്ചില്ല…. തിരുവനന്തപുരം ബ്രാഞ്ച് ഇൽ നിന്നു ആണ് ലോൺ എടുത്തത്…. എന്തിനും chennai ബ്രാഞ്ചിൽ email അയക്കണം…. Email നടനാണ് വരുന്നത് എന്നു തോന്നുന്നു… ഒരു മാസം ആയാലും മറുപടി ഇല്ല….

“In kenya Standard Chartered has very bad support service”

In kenya Standard Chartered has very bad support service. They dont know there own procedures.
So they dont warn me that my retained card will be destroyed in 5 days. Instead they tell that I can come to get my card at any “convenient time” and ignore my appeal destroying the card

And ATMs retain cards very fast!
