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.
We just closed out our last account with them this past week, after over a decade of misery. They are most unethical, conniving, fleecing, institution I've ever banked with. Their customer service, although it has improved some over the past two years, has been on the whole staffed with argumentative, condescending troglodytes. And the fluidity with which they add fees upon fees upon hidden fees is absolutely ridiculous.
Even when I closed out my accounts, they charged me a servicing fee on all three of them because I had stopped the direct deposits that month in advance of transferring everything over to USAA (an AMAZING bank, btw). You would have expected, after having conducted business with them for about 14 years that they would have said "Hey, no biggie, we'll just wave these since you stopped the deposits in order to close out your accounts". Nope. The lady actually waited for me to go back out to my car to get the $7.14 for her to deposit to bring the balance to zero... I hope they crash and burn hard - I would rather be fed alive to fire ants than ever go back to banking with them. God bless the real "banks of America", like USAA!
Went in to the Thrashers Corner branch in Bothell and spoke with Jonathon. Was not happy about his attitude and follow through. He was to take care of canceling an account and then contacting me before the end of the business day. I waited no call so I assumed he would call me the following morning to confirm that he made the call to a department within the bank. Once again no call so I called him after 12:00pm and he had attitude with me, told me he has difficulty handling all the customers and that come into the banking center. (I guess this is why I didn't get a call from him). He did say he had made the cancellation call but didn't have a name of who he spoke with, no confirmation number and didn't request any documentation sent confirming our request. He said there was "probably" notes on the accounts. He dropped the ball.
I had an account for a couple years now and I just decided to close my account. They told me that I could no longer have my online banking account because it was not offered also they told me that because I was 23 I did not qualify for student discount even though I guess people only go to college until the 23. What really made me want to close it was the ridiculous overdraft charges. A whole $100 in overdraft charges for a $27 transaction talk about ridiculous. Then when I called to speak to them about it the lady I spoke to was very rude and supervise it was also not helpful at all he just kept repeating the same thing saying that when you overdraft charge they charge you a fee like I know that! I'm not an idiot.
