Customer Service Head,
My embarrassing and miserable life started few days back, in the first week of
November this year, when I received few phone calls from nos. 011-6637 1285 / 6637
1212 / 6637 1288 claiming to be from “ Barclays Finance ” offering personal loans on
attractive terms of low interest rates and reduced processing fees so on and so
forth. What added more pain to it that a gentleman, Mr. Indranil (Mobile No.
9650540204) claiming him to be the center head, told me that being a “Bengali” (as I
am a Bengali person), he would personally be supervising the whole loan application
process till disbursement and without any investigation he would pass my loan. This
gesture by Mr. Indranil produced doubt in my mind. This doubt became more intense
when Mr. Indranil started convincing me saying that he would sanction the loan at
the interest rate of 11% which is quite absurd in the context of prevailing interest
rate and only 0.5% processing would be charged for the
process. Based on Mr. Indranil’s false assurance, I submitted all the relevant
documents (i.e. Photo, bank statement, passport etc) to a gentleman, Mr. Manoj
(Mobile 9250782922) on November 11, 2009 for a loan amount of Rs. 5,00,000 along
with the filled –in application form.
During past 15 days, while following up the loan process, Mr. Indranil every time
told me that the loan had been sanctioned and ready to be disbursed. Meanwhile, one
fine morning Mr. Indranil told me that for disbursement of the loan amount, an
account had to be opened with Barclays Bank with Rs. 3680 and insisted me to pay the
same in cash and I agreed to open the same. For that Mr. Indranil personally came to
my residence in November 15, 2009 (Sunday) and trying to get another loan
application form to be filled. I asked Mr. Indranil that I had already filled the
same; he told me that this was required to open a bank account with the Barclays
Bank. He insisted me to give Rs. 3680 by cash. I denied and gave the cheque of Rs.
3680 (No. 267636, ICICI Bank) in favour of Barclays Finance. While writing the
payee’s name in the cheque, Mr. Indranil insisted me not to write the payee’s name
and leave the space blank. This fraudulent act by Mr. Indranil
confirmed my doubt on him and upon repeated request he did not give his visiting
card. He took another crossed cheque of Rs. 5,00,000 in favour of Barclays Finance
(No. 267635 of ICICI Bank).
Having failed in his mission to cheat me, Mr. Indranil immediately left my residence
Since then, neither he is calling me nor picking up my phones. Now at this point of
time , I am in severe problem which is not only damaging my mental health but also
affecting my professional life because based on Mr. Indranil’s assurance, I made
some commitment and started doing some small projects.
Now at this very critical point of time, It is my humble request to you, please look
into the matter and intervene to resolve this issue of severe social evils and
concerns and bring out the actual identity of such fraud and criminal like Mr.
Indranil and punish
Looking forward to have a ethical banking of high morale.
