I had replied to an ad for a job and this job entailed picking up packages and redistributing them to various places. Well, the first check came to pay me and to pay for the shipments. I deposited this check into my account ( I did not withdraw a penny of it) I was waiting to see if it cleared the bank first. Well, it did not. It was a scam. I was penalized for this by Bank of America. They closed my account and turned me into check systems. I did nothing wrong. I can not see how I could have done this any differently. I deposited the check, waited for it clear without withdrawing funds from it. Isn't that what I was supposed to do? Well they gave me the run around for days and then shut me down. No questions, no explanations, no options! When I called the home office to express my concerns and opinions on this matter, it was awful how I was treated. As if I were some common criminal. I was only told in a condescending tone of voice ( repeatedly) that my account was closed and I had been charged $35 for this non existant bank in which the check was drawn on and that I would never have another account at this bank. In my eyes, MY BANK should have had my back in this situation especially since I had not withdrawn any funds on this check. I also called the bank on the third day and expressed my concerns about the validity of the check since it had cleared, and that I did not want my personal information disclosed to the sender of the check. But none of this mattered. I was treated as if I had done something wrong. I am still confused as to why.
Bunch of frauds. I put My cash on checking account. I want to by a house on it. On next day they disappeared. They hold it with out any explanation and reason.Nobody can expalin nothing. And staff talking with you and asking a questions in the way like it is you who have stole from them not them from you!
I recently had an issue with a creditor withdrawing unauthorized funds. I used the online chat was helped through the process of applying for a new debit card to ensure no further drafts were taken out and then given the claim number to get the money back. The person i chatted with waived the $5 fee for a new debit card and sent it right away and was helpful and personable the whole time.
The person i spoke with about the claim was very helpful and efficient. I have dealt with two banks before and by far this was the easiest claim i have ever made. The money will be in my account tomorrow which is wonderful for someone living paycheck to paycheck!! The level of professionalism and empathy i have received during this and other transactions have made me a customer for life.
