I opened my account in Nov. 2012, was told that I would be issued a temporary card until they could mail my permanent card. Cool, no worries. A month rolls by, no permanent card, but they shut off my temporary card. So I call, they tell me that they want to CHARGE me to send a new card. I call a few days later, and a different person tells me that she will send a new card as soon as possible. I tell her that I would like it sent to my new address, as I was in the process of moving across state. What does she do? She sent it to my old address anyway. I have not had access to my account in nearly a month! This bank needs to make some changes if it does not want to lose all of their customers!
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
