I truly thought I had found a good bank,but when the chips were down they did not have my back.

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 In my eyes, MY BANK should have had my back in this situation especially since I had not withdrawn any funds on this check.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.

Probably the worst experience every time

Wait time is the longest of any other banks

Customer Service reps have left me waiting various times for up to 10 minutes (which is ridiculous in this tech age)

I get nowhere half the time and just give up on my rep and call back so I can get another rep to help

Reps have outdated web help

Bank of America only sees my small business as their opportunity to pile on more fees

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.
