The Answer

 

Dear Abhu,

You don’t need me, you need a lawyer in the UAE to advise you in this matter. The consequences are very serious and you can easily wind up in jail unless you can find a legal remedy to this situation.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

Big Hug!

        So far nothing happen. I believe the bank have not file any case yet. I had start paying my dues with one of the bank and it works out fine. I am trying to contact the other bank to negotiate the same.
        I hope you do the same to avoid those fear.
        Thanks

    My brother was in uae and he came back to india one year before. He had a credit card debt of 8000 AED. Now he would like to get a PCC for Canada. What happens if he applied for the PCC? Will there be any legal actions or will they deny the application for PCC?

    • http://GetOutOfDebt.org Steve Rhode

      The only issue I remember was someone that needed a statement from the UAE that there were no legal actions against them in the UAE when applying for citizenship in Canada.

  • manooj

    Hi, I had a small CC debt (about AED 8000) with Amex. They filed a police case back in Oct 2009 against me as the security cheque given to them bounced. I have now (7/13) cleared all their dues till date and handed over my cards to them. They have also given me a “release letter” and advised to go to a police stn in bur dubai area to show the letter and remove the case filed on me. but i am a but worried if they would still put be in as the case was filed over a year back?? however, i renewed my uae residency back in jan 2011 without any issues! pls advise. 

  • dilemna

    hi. im in the same situation. some of the banks collection or legal calling me and want me to pay the full amount in one shot, but it’s quiet big amount for me. i keep telling them to make it more lesser but they insist for that amount. mr. ashboss, i just wanted to talk to you to get some ideas how to face this collection…thanks.

  • Ashboss

    which bank? for credit card ..don’t pay more than 30%.. if u caught by police this is what the would ask u to… if ur not ready to pay even 30% they may make it maximum 20% (that is upon Judge) for my 75000 dhrs which i actually owed .. i paid 17500 full n final settlement i got the slip as well ..!!

  • Mjbarriola

    I have 2 police case and was not able to renew my visa. I tried to communicate with the 2 banks but it was depressing and hopeless. To release the police case, I need to settle the 1st card in full and the other card 6850 cash payment and 1 cheque for guarantee and 3 payments for the remaining balance. The banks collector here in Dubai are very rude and unhelpful. Now, my options are to pay or I will not get the visa renewal. aira

        Sorry for late reply : are stil wanted to settle ?

      • Ahwell

        How did you manage to get such a huge discount? Did you have to get jailed before the bank offered this discount?

      • mary

        hi,

        may we know to which bank you have settled your dues that you got very huge discount of your debt.

        because i have the same problem for my dubai bank and dubai first, maybe you can help me, kindly give me the right contact person to call to settle my dues with the two banks with the same discount that you got.

        warmth regards and many thanks

    My brother was here in UAE since 2002 and had a Mashreq Bank Credit Card, he left UAE in 2006 to work in U K while leaving he paid 3500AED of his total outstanding with the bank. last month a legal notice was sent to my home in Manipur India for an outstanding of 59000AED(fifty Nine thousand AED), i though maybe my brother was lying to us for his debts. I contact my friend in Dubai who checked with the bank for the actual due amount is only 2300AED two thousand Three Hundred only. They said he need to pay minimum 16000AED to get settlement. My brother confirmed his credit limit was 6000AED. he instructed me if they accept 2300AED pay and settle or dont pay even a single dirham…I cant understand how much this bank is charging interest and how can they ask for such nonsense amounts.

    Thavatheesan:

    Your case will be base on which bank had filed a case against you and how much was the amount and how many cases. You may pay monthly depending on the court decision.
