I discovered that our mortgage payment had been received by BofA, but not applied to the payment, which was showing as past due. I say discovered because I stumbled onto the information while looking into a payoff for our auto loan. No one had contacted us 19 days into the event.
I spent more than 45 minutes trying to find a human who could assist with the problem. I ended up with a human who might as well have been automated. After answering the 20 questions, he revealed that he was collections and could not help me. There is NO CUSTOMER SERVICE ON WEEKENDS!!! Really? The people who work in order to pay our debts are typically in need of customer support on weekends.
The problem was that the bank erroneously filed my early payment as a principal payment rather than applying to the next payment (by early, I mean on the 30th rather than the 1st). They charged a late fee and then refused to apply our payment because we had not paid the late fee.
Had there been a person to help me on Saturday, I would have chalked it up to error. After 45 minutes of growing increasingly frustrated, I have joined the ranks of customers who are fed up with BofA.
I had a entry on my BOA online of "rck adj posting error"
I assume that this is something of a posting error such as a double deposit by me was detected. However, the strangest thing about this is that all my deposits of the last month can be viewed EXCEPT the deposits of the exact amount I was charged -135.00 ! in other words , I can't investigate the deposits myself! 5 deposits (and 5 checks)do exist that I believe I deposited correctly.Perhaps I did deposit one twice by mistake but why can't i check this myself?
I have to call BOA on Monday, let them investigate this waste countless time punching the phone pads, listen to that insipid, mind numbing music on hold, and talk to them. has this happened to anyone else?
It is never easy to pay your monthly payment to Bank of America Credit CArd. I used to have problem in the past and still now. BOA cancelled my previous credit card while I applied for the new one but it still shows up on my online account. The representative said that it will continue showing u on online account although it was cancelled. That being said, I made payment for the new account which was processed towards the old account. I have tried contacting them. First of all , it takes forever to answer the call. Then they say they will fix it and don't. When you call again, its like they have no idea what you are talking about. I have talked to 5 people so far and none of them have been able to resolve the problem. Once I have paid my balance, I will close the credit card and never ever apply for BOA credit card ever again. I use Citi, Discover, AMEX, local bank credit card and never even had single problem with other credit card.
I just don;t like how BOA handles things. This is just ridiculous.
