Took over 18 months of hell to try and re-fi a simple cash-out loan... Kept stonewalling and then asking for additional information. Run around after run around. We finally went to another lender and closed within 6 weeks. Paid off my credit card in full and discovered 3 months later that a $1. 50 monthly fee was being charged to my account and since we had cut up the card and never used it - i wasn't aware till we tried to get a loan and was told that there was a delinquent on my credit report. I will never voluntarily give boa another dime!
After putting up with more and more new fees showing up, typically without explanation or advance warning in understandable English, I have come to the conclusion that Bank of America only sees my company as their opportunity to pile on more fees so as to increase their profits. When I called yesterday to complain about the latest surprise on my small business statement, I got shoveled from one person who said he did not know to another person in another department who said that she did not know to another person who finally said he had specific knowledge that this new fee was being charged in error and he could help me with it as soon as he consulted with his manager while putting me on hold. The moment he put me on hold, the lousy Bank of America call system dropped the call AND HE DID NOT CALL ME BACK. After waiting 25 minutes I started the whole process over again but achieved no resolution for my issue. I DID LEARN THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT OPERATING POLICY FOR THE BANK OF AMERICA CUSTOMER SERVICE CALL CENTERS: IF THE CALL GETS DROPPED, THE BofA PERSON IS PROHIBITED FROM CALLING ME BACK. HE/SHE HAS ZERO ABILITY TO ORIGINATE AN OUTBOUND CALL AND FURTHERMORE THE MOMENT MY CALL GOT DROPPED, HE WAS SWITCHED OVER TO A NEW IN-BOUND CALL FROM ANOTHER ABOUT-TO-BE-FRUSTRATED-AGAIN BofA CUSTOMER.
US Bank does not operate their call centers this way. That is where I am now taking my company business and I recommend that readers of this posting do likewise.
this bank is full of excuses, every time you call customer services they give you different info for the same issue. bottom line is i wouldn't go for it even if it is the last bank in the whole universe.
