Another annoying call from Standard Chartered Bank

I have received yet another call from the Standard Chartered Bank. This time, it is about the service level of one of their bank personnel. It is astounding. This bank cannot stop engaging its customers with call after call. This must be the eleventh or twelfth call this year. I received one from them regarding a credit card offer yesterday. Credit card offers, loan offers, customer service surveys, what else?

True Fitness has hounded me on the mobile phone twice or thrice now.

just inform them you are filing for bankruptcy and you are grateful that they will still offer you a credit card? :)

Oh, it's simple.

Caller: Hello, is this Mr Chuang? I am calling from Standard Char...

Me: I'm sorry, I'm not interested. Thank you.

Call ends.

The problem is that I think Standard Chartered Bank engages several of these promotional companies at the same time. They have the same list. You can ask one of them to remove you from their list but it does not stop the others.

yes, they are notorious for doing that. ._. telemarketers are like cockroaches, there is always one in that corner of the room.

There is also a disclaimer clause on their T&C that states that they will be using your details for 3rd Party promotions. If you sign up with them, you'll find it there.
