How do I make Standard Chartered Bank stop calling me?? They suck!

It was a few years back that I had the bitterest experience with Standard Chartered Bank, in respect to a credit card that I had of theirs. Finally, I ended up tearing the card, throwing it away, and instructing them to not bother me ever again.

But little did I know, that you can enter the Standard Chartered network, but never get out of it!

Every once in a while, I would get a call from them, offering to “give me a card again”. Letting me know that “my name had been selected to be offered a card all over again”.

Like I had been rejected earlier, and now they were approving me again!!

How many times I needed to tell them that it was ME who had rejected Standard Chartered Bank, and not the other way around!  Well, in spite of these clear instructions and angry retorts from my end, I would keep getting calls, every few months.

Since it would be once in 3-4 months or so, while still being upset, I let it be.

Except that suddenly these days, it has become terrible.

I get a call from them nearly once in 3-4 days! And that in spite of the fact, that a couple of weeks back, I asked the operator concerned to note down, that I HAD REJECTED their card, and I did not want anything to do with Standard Chartered Bank, ever again. And that they should remove my number from their system, FOREVER.

And YET, the calls would not stop. Every 3-4 days, without fail, they would call me again. From their Pune call center (here’s the number they call from: 91-20-40078959). And offering me “the privilege to own a Standard Chartered Bank credit card”.

They don’t have any clue about the extent to which they damage their brand. Not only will I never use their credit card, EVER, in my life again, I will also NEVER use ANY other services offered by Standard Chartered Bank. AND I will use all opportunities of this kind, to let everyone I know, that they should not do ANY business with Standard Chartered Bank.

So there.. !!

    Maybe the relentless badgering on telemarketing calls got them to that position! Maybe others are more tolerant about this than I am.. ?!

    As regards your daily comments, well, maybe its just the content that compels you to do so 😉
