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 called in because I made a deposit at the 2305 East Cesar E Chavez Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90033, to make at deposit before my the day had ended, which the following day I still got a fee, there are no signs posted that you must make it before 8pm any where on that atm (Which I still have pictures of on my phone). So I called in to get it taken off of my account, both people refuse, because it applied correctly according to them. Both were extremely rude, and talked over me, just seemed like they didn't care at all, The Manager would not address my concerns at all, all he did was point be back to the terms of my account, which I pointed out to him the technology did not exist when I opened the account so they were not in my terms. he just still refused and said there online, like anyone has time to go look at every page of the online website, he did not once show any empathy and sounded like he was just having a over all bad day.
$31 it cost to order new checks. Are you serious??? Customer service is hit or miss and I have had multiple times where the 1-800 customer service has told me something to be told by the branch manager something different. Not worth the time or fees they love to charge at any opportunity! And the interest rates for savings accounts are a complete joke, don't even bother!
