The Various Ways To Contact The KCB Customer Care Unit
As a customer trying to lay a complaint or make an inquiry on a service the bank renders, you can easily do so by walking into the nearest KCB branch and get your answers from the customer care unit. However, in addition to this traditional method, the bank has also keyed into the advancement in technology and communication channels to serve its customers via several media. These media cut across email, telephone, SMS, fax, Facebook, Twitter, and even Whatsapp.
The procedure to contact the KCB customer unit using the aforementioned media are outlined below:
Via The KCB Email Address
The possibility of fraud makes it necessary to ensure that an email for KCB gets to their official email address. KCB Kenya, therefore, has had to make its official email address available on its website. You can visit the website to get the email address which is – [email protected].
Via The Phone
Based on urgency and the type of inquiry or complaint at hand (usually a transaction that encounters problems), a customer may desire to make a quick call to the KCB customer care unit. The lines to reach KCB customer care are;
When you encounter problems in using your card or want to make an inquiry to get the accurate card details, you can call +254711087222. More so, customers using KCB M-Pesa have been given a special line for that purpose and it is +254203270000.

Whatsapp is now one of the most popular messaging apps in the world and it will be an obvious oversight if a successful bank like KCB can not be contacted via the platform. The Whatsapp number available to lay complaints and make inquiries is +254711087087
Via Social Media
KCB is putting up a structure to make customer care services easy for their customers. Their social media handles which they use majorly for passing information across to the general public also serve as a customer care service. These include their Facebook – KCB Bank Group, Twitter – @KCBGroup, and Instagram – @kcbgroup amongst others
On these platforms, customers can ask general questions which can be visible to all on the platform or may send a direct message to the handle. Either way, all questions will be attended to promptly except in some cases when delay will be experienced due to the large number of comments that flood their page. This might make it difficult to pick out an inquiry or complaint on time. In such a situation, customers are to exercise a little patience until they get the answer to their question or complaint.
More so, to get the best of their services on any of these platforms, there are a couple of rules customers need to adhere to and they include:
- Lodge your complaints or ask your questions with caution on any of their social media sites because anything you send online will be read by the entire public
- Always verify the suggested financial answers you get online with professional financial advisers because not all users on these platforms are financial experts.
- Do not disclose any personal information like your account number, PIN, phone number, email, address, and other personal financial information on any of these social media platforms. Such information can be misused by fraudsters and KCB Group has a disclaimer where they state that they will not be liable in any way for any losses or claims that may arise from any personal information that was posted on any KCB social media platform by users.
