I have finally closed my last account associated with Bank of America. I banked with BoA for about seven years and had several different accounts with them. While I found that at many different branches the folks who worked there usually had decent attitudes, the overall company attitude of BoA has always been one long and tireless fight to ream every bit of money out of you they can. The final straw for me, and by NO means the only time, was that my BoA CC ended up with an outstanding balance because of a charge that didn't quite make it onto the monthly bill. My account the ended up delinquent for just over 30 days, over $5 dollars, by the time I had reviewed my account statement it was already late. So because I, a seven year customer who had always kept my accounts up and paid all my bills, had $5 more than 30 days overdue they actually reported to a credit agency! For the next seven years I now have a black mark on my credit score! Seriously BoA? I could understand it if I was behind every month, or even if it was a major payment, but over $5 dollars that I paid straight after finding out? All my BoA accounts are now closed and I will no longer deal with them. I would feel more comfortable with my money stuffed in a pillowcase.
From October 2012 to March 2013, Bank of America would have many excuses not to process my payment for my credit card bill. I would call customer service to pay part of that bill. I gave them my personal checking account number , (located on the front of my checks.). the next following month, I checked my bank statement and no payment was made to Bank of America. I called Bank of America to find out why the amount was not applied on my account. The customer service rep. told me that i gave them the wrong number on the check. I asked them that they should have call, e-mail, or text me of this problem. (COME ON), I think that I can read numbers on the bottom of a check, (Routing numbers). so I gave them the complete routing numbers again. And again the same thing happened again. This went on for at least 5 months. Finally I was able to pay, (IN FULL), the whole amount. now I have a bad credit mark on my credit score and they will not take them off because they show their records as accurate. Maybe this is a way to make extra money from late fees.
I have always enjoyed doing business with bank of America. They are always able to give me quick and accurate info regarding my accounts. The ATM is also my favorite thing about this bank. I rarely ever have to go into the bank, the atm can do everything. I have been doing business with them since 2010 and plan on doing business with them for another 10 years.
