Refund of BG

Refund of cash margin Bank Guarantee- TCXG911181KUP

We had submitted our original BG to trade centre in Jalan Tun H.S Lee on 3rd Mar 2021 and no one process the refund until today.

It is so hard to call the Centre to get anyone to response to us. Quite ridiculous to get refund on our own cash. It is inefficient at all.

We want a immediate refund on this.

We are contacted by this number.+603 5561 8585

Personal loan fully settled on 5/1/2018 but account not update yet

I have paid full payment for my personal loan on 5/1/2018.
I personally call customer service and get the full & final payment amount and settle the payment.
On 7/9/2018 my other Bank called me and informed that my CCRIS show i have personal loan with outstanding of RM7k++. I knew i only apply personal loan with RHB, i called immediately to RBH customer service at 11.50am and talk with Ms Azrin, she informed i still have balance RM3177.81.
I explain and provide the payment detail to her, she told me full payment only can be done at RHB counter & i paid thru Internet Banking therefore they cant take it as full payment. I told her when i call before i make the full payment the staff didnt inform me that i need to go to the counter. Ms Asrin said she cant help in this matter and ask me to walk to any nearest RBH Branch to check.
Im not really happy with the explain given by Ms Azrin so i called again at 12.08pm and talk with Ms Hanani after explain the full story, she said that she cant help me on this matter and ask me to call again.
12.17pm I called agian and insist to talk with the customer service manager but the staff refused to pass the call and said will help to assist me. Spoke with En Taufiq, said will file my complaint and he need 7 working day to check who is the person i talk with b4 i make full payment.
I urge the management to settle this issue immediately and clear my name from CCRIS.
Thank you

Calls to Rhb Customer service unanswered

I believe RHB bank group provides the worse customer services to their customers among all banks in Malaysia as numerous calls to their customer service line 3 92068118 remain unanswered.

Hence, suggest that existing customers should switch to our banks immediately which offer better customer services.

Despite calling for more than half hours to this customer service line not even a call has been answered and the phone kept ringing until it went dead.

refused to release my money


The bank refused to release my money after I pay 50k USD. The bank officer Abdul Malik lie to me as he has no integrity. he told me once I pay 50k USD before 5pm. I will get my money in my bank. However, I get none.

How could RHB do such a thing? The Bank don't have integrity ?????

I don't understand by the refundable tax from Malaysia gov. , since it is refundable why make me pay?

I had already pay money clearance and the certh cost me 35k USD, why bank keep asking for money?

This is the most horrible encounter I ever had with the bank.

I demand a official reply from the RHB.

Thank you

Staff at the counter are super lazy

I had been asking to change important personal information over a period of 1 year in vain. They're not even over the phone where I can't physically reach. Their helpline people suck, their counter people also suck. What's left to stick to this bank where customers' money is supposed to be secured? None. There're much better banks in the country.

internet username blocked

The worst ever customer service. Waited for 10 minutes for the call to be answered. Spoke to a lady by the name of farah. extremely rude.(1635hrs / 130320`7) She is talking like uneducated and uncivilized. My problem not solved. She said will get another person to call me. Why RHB recruiting people like this? RHB getting worst than any other banks. RHB has to LEARN basics from CIMB and Maybank

Customer service sucks

I was making an online transaction and the OTP sent to me was so hard to know whether it means capital I or small l. So I accidentally keyed in wrongly for 3 times and it immediately blocked it. Other bank will just block the account for 5 mins or so but RHB is champion, blocked until you call their customer service to reset it. Best thing is they provide the BEST customer service ever. I really curious does the 24 hours hotline means 24hours no people working or picking up phone calls? It make you to wait through 10 mins listening to nonsense ads and after those ads finish just cut your line by saying all staffs are busy pls try again later. Yay, since when within 24 hours in a day your staffs are not busy? Seriously what is the purpose of this customer service? Can't RHB just learn from other banks?

Extremely bad customer service and helpline

I have just registered online banking and would like to retrieve bank statement from 2 weeks ago but was told that the online banking can only generate future bank statements starting from the day of my registration. Both the staff at a branch and helpline operator told me totally contradicting information where they asked me to go to each other to get the bank statements, only to find that both couldn't do anything.

WORST part is the helpline customer service, for FOUR days I called across different time only to wait for nothing. NOBODY PICKED UP. I had to go to a different operator (not handling my issue) to ask about it, only to get no answer.


For your information, CIMB bank can just easily print out any past bank statement at the reception counter in a split second with stamp and signature, FOC, learn from them.

credit card and customer service

my credit card been double charges by same restaurant at same date. at that time i only look at the waitress swap one time, and i sign one resit only.
I call for customer service ask how and why? she tell me to go back that restaurant, customer service cannot do anything.
SO MEAN i have to go back the restaurant with one resit,and have to print out the credit card statement.
so complicated, If i at oversea also meet this problem, Is that i have to back that country to refund back my money?
Some more i want to raise this report hope that credit card centre can look at this problem,
but she say i have to go bank to fill up the form, customer service calling centre cannot do this report,
So mean i have to stop my work, go to bank to raise this report, then you only will look serious to this problem?
In this technology centery, cannot use internet to raise report or by calling? Not my false but very disturb, why credit card centre cannot respond well?

terrible customer and phone service

I applied for a Tesco-rhb credit card two weeks ago, and this week i received a platinum rhb credit card, which is not what i wanted. I called the rhb service line, which put me in line listening to their ads for more than 10 minutes, after waiting for so long, a message said all operators are busy, please call back later. So i tried another number, and this number is a joke, no message even to acknowledge the presence of the customer, just listening to ads ads and more ads until the message to tell me to call back again! It was getting late and i decided to try the next morning. Next morning is the same thing, wait wait and wait. So i decided the call the local branch no. in ipoh, to my surprise...the lady customer service officer just said...all banks are like that!!! I was so angry and fed up!!
(in fact, ambank service is much better, they call me everytime i make a large transaction on my credit card to verify the transaction, their phone line is much answered much faster too... so now thinking about it... i think i will cancel all my rhb accounts and cards and switch to ambank!!!)

terrible customer and phone service

Last week i made a complain abt some1 taken money from my saving acc which is w/o ATM card. On 28/3, i went to update &withdraw money at Wawasan Ampang RHB, what surprising me is after update my p/book, it shows all funny transaction & balance was not tally too. Complain to RHB, a clerk ask me to go & wait at home coz they need to find out with HQ later & will come back to me but no response.
On 2/4, i & my daughter went to look for the MANAGER, asst. branch mgr attended to me but she knows nothing abt it. (I think there's no morning briefing for RHB bank or they treat this critical case as normal???) REALLY DISPPOINTED!! Then we need to complain again, after showing all the detail to her, she told us need to wait & check with HQ. AGAIN??? Ok fine, When i wish to withdraw money & hope to update my p/book she refused & said there's something wrong with my acc, reject my withdraw & said will come back to me after checking with HQ to find out what was happen.
On 3/4, she called to inform that it was wrongly update in my p/book where some1 using ATM card to withdraw money & cannot detect who & where it was happen. I & my daughter was not satisfied & couldn't accept the reason as it happen in banking business. WHAT A BIG MISTAKE THAT I NEVER HEARD BEFORE. When my daughter question whether my acc is safe to use in future & suspect some1 has misuse my acc, she said will double check with HQ again & come back to me asap. OMG! with such unconfident answer, you all better don't call me lah!?
Already made police report & complain to so call CUSTOMER SERVICE, so upset, totally no response.
RHB should pay more attention of this & attend to your customer complaint immediately!!
For me, these is quite a critical case & i hope RHB should give me a professional answer and apologize letter too to avoid any problems happen in future. I will consider to cancel all my RHB acc & fixed deposit later due to totally "LOST CONFIDENCE WITH U GUYS"
