Unsatisfied Service

I opened a Rak Bank account on line, all was going well and I was sent that my account is ready and waiting for me in Dubai at one off the branches. I am a foreigner and spoke to the bank before opening it and they said there is no problem to open an account.

I arranged then all my flights to be changed and also a hotel booking, the whole trip changing cost me about $1500-00 just so I can pick up my account package as they told me to do.

Once I arrived at the bank branch they told me that the bank can't open a account because I am a foreigner, I showed the branch manager all my documents and approval from the bank and what they sent me. He then contacted the main branch and the main branch had me on there system already, then the branch manager turned around saying that this is a new process and that I need more documentation.

I told him that the account is already open but still he insisted that I need extra documentation. I then gave him the documentation that he was asking for. He then told me he will sent it into the main branch and this will take about a week to be approved.

I was still amazed because my approval was already there, and I did not have a week to stay in Dubai. The branch manager told me he will give me a call and then all be sorted, this was in February 2015, we are already at the end off March 2015, and still I have NO account.

The bank is a waste off time and money for me and I just want to tell all future clients or people thinking to join RAK BANK, please consider another bank before you believe anything this bank is saying.

POOR...POOR...POOR service and bad management.

Dear Sir/ Madam,
I am the wife of one of your customers from Dubai. My husband lost his job in 2013 and he is having a personal loan. He was paying every month without any default. In 2014 Feb he could not pay and in 2014 Mar he got another job but unfortunately they were not paying the salary on time so the payment was delayed. But every month we paid.Your staff went to that office and shouted at the HR and he lost the job again. Somehow he could get another job there also the same thing happened. The salary got delayed and so the bank transfer got delayed and these people went and shout at the office and again he lost the job in Oct. After waiting for almost 5 months he got another job last week but we never stopped paying the installment. This month he requested them to hold and told that he already got another job and from next month onwards they will get monthly transfer regularly. But the collection department didn't want to listen and again today he got a call from the office that the collection department called the office and told that he has a loan and they told that settle it fast. In what way the new company is responsible? What kind of harassment is this? Also the way they talk is horrible. They tell that they will see that the visa is not getting stamped. Do they think that you can recover the money by doing so? We want to pay off the loan. We don't have any intention to run away like that. They should see whether it is genuine or not. If we lose this job then they are not going to get any payment after that. I request you to kindly take proper action in these kind of situations. Even they call the family and threaten them. What is this? They called me and said that they are bringing the police home and arrest him. Whom we have to complain in this situation?

Dear Sir/Madam

Let me Introduce my self, S. Fernandes from Abu Dhabi, last month in November 2013 an agent Mr. Baskar from RAK Bank - Abu Hail Branch [Loans & Credit cards Dept.] called me with offerring me a a better offer on the top up against my exiisting personal loan. The verification process and the approved amount was disclosed to me on 5th December 2013. I was intemated that the process would take 2-3 working days, since then i have only being getting false dates and no updates from Baskar, then i switched on to Mr. Binu who claimed to be Baskars boss. Then there was a story that my signature mismatched after all approvals for which i even signed with a sample photograph of my bank account opening signature on Mr. Baskar's mobile phone "IS THAT LEGAL"....?

I have never faced this kind of problems before and with great regret I have to says that RAK Bank you should not have CSA’s who lie to the client. I have asked Mr. Baskar to send me a copy of my application form signed by me which I have a right to have and still not received. Every step of these issues were sent by e-mail to Mr. Larry Behl - Relationship Manager and i still have no call back from him not even a reply. Mr. Binu just says it will happen tomorrrow morning, then evening ...full of lies, i have been speaking to 10 different customer agents on 2130000...and i just get ...complains registered but no response from the Abu Hail Branch.

Ref No. given by Cust Service :9550189
Mr. Baskar - Mobile 052 7319870
Mr. Binu - Mobile 056 1175299

Well all the above just effects the reputation of your bank, if someone has any concerns will call back and handle this issue.

Credit Cartd & Unprofessional Staff

my husband used to work in Dubai but in 2009 he asked for a 1 month vacation from the company because he needed to be by my side when I undergo surgery of the thyroid. He had a credit card debt at Rak Bank for less than 4000 dirhams. According to him, before he left Dubai, he went to the collecting agent to pay his dues, unfortunately they were closed because the said establishment was affected by the recession. On the other hand, he was not able to return to Dubai because the company where my husband worked was also affected by the recession. A local collecting angency is harrasing us to pay the dues 10x bigger .Unfortunately we dont have the power to pay now. can they send my husband to jail for not paying? thanks
