I had a fire in my home on 26 nov 12. My insurance company issued me a check that was promptly endorsed then sent via overnight service to banboa offices located in california as i was instructed to do. Confirmation of the check receipt by boa was received on 07 dec. I was told initially when i called to report the property lost in late nov that the processing of the insurance check would be 3 business days after boa received it. I expected base on that to have received a disbursement by 14 or 15 dec since i called and requested over night service back to me. I am currently displaced living in a hotel room with my three minor children and i am a military member has to depart for a training assignment in virginia from 08 jan 13 to 24 april 13. I explained my limited time to get my home repaired and to get my children settled due to my military obligations to the numerous representatives. I was assured on four occasions when i spoke with a boa representative that the check will be or was sent which was a lie. I took a week off from work for nothing. I sat on my property twice from 0800 oâ?? Clock to 3pm waiting outside on a bench in my yard (as i could not wait in the house because it is not inhabitable currently) for the alleged check to be delivered. It never showed. They finally sent it via regular mail which i received on 22 dec so they still get interest until 24 dec. This practice is illegal. They are not entitled to collect interest on my money. That is a source of millions of dollars of revenue for them. I am filing a claim with the federal reserve and all who endure such non sense should too to send a message to them.
I recently moved to Florida and wanted to be sure my account addresses and information was up to date. There was a line out the door for customers. The manager informed me there was a two hour wait to see a representative. So much for customer service. As a premiere customer, you would think they would like to keep my business. I will be moving to another bank.
After waiting in line 20 minutes, I was finally called over to the counter to make a deposit. The teller's name is Melissa and she was extremely rude. When I handed the deposit to her she pushed it back at me and told me to sort the money. I was confused and shocked! I said " isn't that your job?" She said no and proceeded to fold her arms and stare me down, waiting for me to sort the money. I refused so she said she couldn't help me and moved on to the next customer.
I am not one to complain and I typically try to avoid all confrontation. I have only had pleasant experiences at this bank in the past. I have never been told to sort out the money or had anyone ever flat out refuse to help me. As I understand it is not the banks policy to require customers to sort their own deposits. Maybe she was having a bad day but that is no way to treat people
