Last spring we obtained a bofa card with a $5000 credit line. We used this card to go on vacation, and for misc. Purchases. We have other cards and none of them have ever been late, nor have any payments on this card. We paid more than minimum every month, but didn't pay down the 0% interest balance in favor of paying larger amounts on the cards that were charging interest.
Our bofa card started charging interest this month, so this month we made a substantial payment on the account, and were reward by
bofa reducing our credit line by the amount of payment. They could give no reason other than we were subject to a credit review by their committee - no more explanation than that. My spouse is a disabled veteran, and we pay all our bills on time. I think this speaks quite loudly of just how little any of us mean to this conglomerate. I can't wait to pay off the card, and close this account.
I just closed 3 accounts w/ BOA- I was charged $140 in overdraft fees even though my bank statement did not show a negative balance. I had 4 charges on my account that were pending, an automatic deposit was made and cleared 1 or 2 days before the 4 charges cleared. I called customer service- on hold for a long time then they were rude and no help, went to a branch and talked to the vice- president. He tried to tell me that when I made a charge on my account the money is taken out that second and put into a BOA holding account to wait for the merchant to request it, even if that takes 3 or 4 days. I was also told that the bank itself can see transactions on their computer that customers can't see on their personal computers. So your online banking and your bank statement are not the true records of your transactions. I asked the vice-president of the branch to please fix the problem, he flatly refused and offered no help. I told him that I would be closing my 3 accounts and spreading the word not to use his bank and why. He told me "go ahead and do whatever I needed to" he didn't care in the least. So I have lost $140 because of $124 of purchases that didn't clear until days after a $1000 paycheck cleared. Wish I could give them a lower rating but the system wouldn't let me go any lower.
