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 just want to express the frustrating experience i had with bank of america, i opened my account on july and now (oct 18, 2014) still dont have my permanent card, a total of 4 times i requested the card to be re-issued since i never got it in my mail, and now, i decided to close my business with this bank since they keep saying they will re-issue again the card, that is bad service for me. Service at the branch is ok though, but this issue with the card was very frustrating and so i will stop doing business with bank of america. At the same time in july, opened another checkings account with first tech and i got my card immediately at the branch, that was super fast and very practical. Isidro hernandez
