MyBankTracker rated Bank of America based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
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.
Bank of America has perfected their way of placing fees to your account that are not legitimate. I was able to prove it once and the fee was returned after having to prove that the fee was not justified. I don't feel like i should have to babysit my bank account all day every day.
I am 21 and opened 2 credit cards online without reading anything about them. I always pay my bills a week before they're due because i have anxiety about late payments and bad credit. I didn't understand how i paid my bill early but didn't have the full available credit so i called bank of america customer service. Rochelle was beyond amazing and i hold client service very high and she surpassed my standards!
I did not understand the issue whatsoever and she patiently explained it in like 20 different ways until i completely understood, she even offered to transfer me to someone who could help me further if she wasn't capable of doing so. After i got what she was saying i asked her a few more questions and she's not only very intelligent but she's so personable. She's seriously amazing and made my day! She made my baking experience easier and when you understand what's going on with your money your life is easier! Thank you rochelle and bank of america
