I had taken a loan from IDFC In 2014. It was a consumer durable loan.
Sir it's been a 4 days I am getting threatening calls from a recovery agent of the bank somewhere from Mumbai...
I accepted my mistake of non payment of loan and assured her that I ll repay in 1 and 2 days . I even called a recovery agent to my home for a settlement of loan ... But since it was Saturday and the office was closed he was not able to provide a recipt for the same...si I refused to pay and sainld that I ll o my pay when I will get the statement in written.
After that the agent again called and threatened me continuously for wasting her time .
I am a 9 month pregnant woman not in a good condition .. I requested hr to plz calm down but she contiously threatened me which resulted into high BP and medication..I will settle the loans in a day or two... For sure but how can I avoid these type of calls... And such threatening recovery agent.
Secondly, why call a person on a Saturday? Make the effort to call IDFC, from where you have taken the loan. Once you repay it with interest â€” PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE A NO DUES CERTIFICATE â€” having this is important. It will immediately give a boost to your credit score.
IDFC is a major bank - you need to go to the branch and repay the loan. They may even send someone home to collect it â€” make sure you have someone responsible with you. And make sure you take acknowledgements and the no-dues certificate.
