I applied for a BoAM CC over the summertime, and was approved for a credit line of $5,000. subsequently activating my card in the early fall. I have a few other cc's with great payment history, NEVER late, etc.... After Thanksgiving, I began Christmas shopping. I made one iPad purchase and a few other small dollar amount purchases at various stores with in 3 DAYS of each other. Holidays came and past, and just today I received a cancellation notice of my CC from BoAM. Are you kidding me? I had already sent off my FIRST payment, which was made early after checking my balance online.
Their (BoAM) reasoning in the letter, " Current economic trends, as a result, we have closed your above referenced account". And, "are no longer authorizing any further transactions."
I will pay this off after receiving my FIRST and only statement, I am so glad I did not use this any further, such a ridiculous experience with Bank of America! I would have given them a 5 rating, then only to retract that and rate BoAM a ZERO!!!!
I was out of city and used my Credit card once. the day after I received a call with no introduction that said Your Debit card closed Then I couldn't see my credit account online when I came back I called the bank and I was told that was for security Well who's security? mine or the potential thieve? Imagine another person used my card in another city. You Blocked me online, not to be able to see what's happening to my account while the card is still OK to be used by who ever You kidding me?? They could at least call me and check if it was me?? At the end I see a "maintenance fee" charged in my account too ,which I don't know why is that?
More over, when look at my activities on line, any time in this couple of days I used my credit card , it shows the Type as "Cash Advance" not the regular. Cash Advance from a credit card has charges!!!!!! No wonder why they never blocked the card.
I emailed the bank from the contact page within the bank account-online. They responded back to me almost in 1 week that I have to log in my account and send email from the secure page within my account / online.
Didn't I just do that?!?! so pissed off.
Contacted CEO office. no difference ...
