Service? Think again. They pay you to get an account. Does it sound to good to be true? It is. Their banking techniques are of the times of donkeys and mules. And it is all about them. The customer comes last, not metaphorically, oh no! To give an example, if you need to speak to a manager, you leave a message and they call you back in the order your complaint is received. Translation? Never.
When you finally come across a few hours to "deal" with them and â?? Stomachâ?? Learned lines, and repetitive runarounds, then you are in for several hours of hoop, after hoop, after hoop... False advertisement? They follow it by the book. Do yourself a favor, walk to the bank across the street or go to a credit union. The only thing "international" about this bank is their "internationally known poor customer service policies... "
I went to a Bank of America branch to purchase Mexican pesos for an upcoming trip. When the teller gave me the receipt for the transaction, I saw that they were giving me a little over 7 pesos to the US dollar. At home, looked up the exchange rate for that day and it was over 14 pesos to the dollar. I called the bank and cancelled the purchase. The manager said he had already put the order in but that he would send the pesos back. When the pesos arrived, the manager called to confirm my desire to cancel. He told me that Bank of America would refund my money at a lower rate. In the end, I was charged $80.00 for this cancellation. Never use Bank of America for foreign currency purchase. Their rates are unfair and the process is rediculous
