If a consumer of financial products and services considers his interests to be affected, he can address both the financial institution with which he has a contract and the state institutions that are authorized to resolve disputes.

In cases where customer interests are affected, for example, incorrectly charged interest on a deposit or credit, improperly charged charges, unauthorized card transactions, the bank must first notify the servicing bank or the payment service provider. When the case concerns a financial institution that has granted a consumer loan, you should first contact it. This is the easiest and quickest way to reach mutual agreement between the parties,

Banks are very sensitive to the trust of their clients, so they seek to address and resolve disputes and frustrations in due time. Therefore, if the party concerned finds transactions that it considers to be unlawful, there is a doubt that the agreed deposit interest is not charged, the higher the interest on the loan or the difficulty of servicing the loan, the client is best to he / she shall first contact the servicing bank or financial institution.

In the letter to the bank / financial institution detailed information about the problem has to be provided as well as detailed identification data - name, PIN code, bank account number, credit / deposit contract number, etc. If necessary, copies of documents may be attached to the letter. The client must ensure that his / her letter is entered with an incoming number and informs him / her in what time he / she will receive an answer.
