An unsatisfied customer in India had this to say, "I have called the [Standard Chartered] customer care services more than 100 times again and again asking same question not help to solve the issue. Mostly Arrogant and non professional staff I have ever experienced in my life, had my salary account with them for past 5 years gonna soon change that. Disgusting and worse services please never ever go for this bank."
