The company for which I was working had issued me a credit card in 2007.For 2 years I was not using the credit card.After purchase of the new home I have removed 20,000 rupees from the credit card.Unfortunately due to some reasons I was not able to repay the credit card dues because I have lended some extra money from my pals which I am still repaying them.Now I have lost my job .In Feb 2009 the recovery agent came to my house to pay 3600 rupees as a minimum amount due and I will issue a settlement letter of 14000 rupees.I agreed and payed 3600 rupees to the collection agent.After 10 days in contacting ICICI Collection department they told me that the settlement would be done at 28000 rupees.I disagreed and told them to do whatever you wanted to do do it.I will not pay you a single amount.In the month of July the collection agent came to my house and he told me to pay 1500 rupees to take your settlement letter from the bank.I pay 1500 rupees to the concerned person.The collection agent told me that the settlement would be done at 20000-25000 rupees lumsome amount .I agreed.The next day the person called me and told me that the settlement have been done at 19000 .He also told me that 4000 rupees you have to pay in cash because the concerned bank person is taking this money as corruption for the removal of the settlement letter in advance.I agreed and told him to remove the settlement letter.The settlement letter zerox copy he have given it to me and he told me to give 4000 rupees .I have given the collection agent 4000 rupees in cash and the collection agent have given me settlement letter zerox copy.After contacting customer care the customer care told me that the settlement is done at 19000 rupees.so the settlement was not fake.I went to the JB Nagar Branch. I told the branch in front of recovery agents the concerned person have taken 4000 rupees as corruption for removal of settlement letter.The recovery agents instead of blaming the concerned collection agent have blamed me for not taking the reciept.The concerned collection agent told in front of all the collection agents that I have not taken any 4000 rupees from you.They asked me to show me the proof or anthing that you have.I have showed them the settlement letter zerox copy.They didn't agreed to that proof .They told me that somebody have taught you to do this .They told me that I am lieing .They harassed me at the JB Nagar branch very badly and told me I will not let you go unless and untill you will not pay the entitre outstanding amount.They scolded me ,shouted at me.They told me to give a call at your place and make the payment ready Then only I will leave you.I was really pissed up with the said case.I told them to give me some time of two days .They agreed and told me to pay the amount to the same concerned person .Then after two days the concerned collection agent called and told me to pay 19000 rupees.I told him .I will not pay you a single amount.He told me that I know how to take money from you.After 3 days he again called.I disconnected the call .The matter is not yet resolved yet?.The outstanding amount have reached to 50000 rupees .The card limit was 25000 rupees.Please help me to resolve the concerned issue since the interest rate is increasing day by day which will land me in a miserable situation...?

Dear Soni Sir
Thank you very much for taking your hardened time and explaining me the details about the settlement.One more thing I would like to ask.Do you think after doing this my card will get settled in a nominal amount or shall I go to my lawyer and explain him the situation about the said case.?
Hi Manoj, there is no need to go to the lawyer. Do these steps and everything will be done. Best of luck.
Thanks you soni sir for taking your precious time and giving me a valuable advice.
What should I write in the email?.I should write the above case in detail or I should write only the relevant content saying this that
"I Manoj holding card no XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX WOULD LIKE TO SETTLE since my Job is no more and I am in no position to pay the credit card dues .Otherwise I would have to contact the banking ombudsman.
I would be highly obliged If you do the settlement in a nominal amount as early as possible"
I will mention my valid phone number as well as e-mail address
or I should write the above case in writing
