When will banks start act­ing re­spon­si­bly?

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

I read the story on the busi­ness page (7DAYS, Septem­ber 20) about banks be­ing cau­tious on lend­ing to real es­tate de­vel­op­ers and I thought: fi­nally the banks are tak­ing some re­spon­si­bil­ity. Mo­ments later I re­ceived a call from my bank, dur­ing which the caller told me ‘as a val­ued cus­tomer with a per­sonal loan, would I like to bor­row an­other Dhs100,000’? So I al­ready owe you loads of money but you want me to bor­row more from you? This is ir­re­spon­si­ble, from me for tak­ing on debt in the first place, but es­pe­cially from the bank en­cour­ag­ing me to go deeper into debt. Debtor, Dubai
