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!!!!
From October 2012 to March 2013, Bank of America would have many excuses not to process my payment for my credit card bill. I would call customer service to pay part of that bill. I gave them my personal checking account number , (located on the front of my checks.). the next following month, I checked my bank statement and no payment was made to Bank of America. I called Bank of America to find out why the amount was not applied on my account. The customer service rep. told me that i gave them the wrong number on the check. I asked them that they should have call, e-mail, or text me of this problem. (COME ON), I think that I can read numbers on the bottom of a check, (Routing numbers). so I gave them the complete routing numbers again. And again the same thing happened again. This went on for at least 5 months. Finally I was able to pay, (IN FULL), the whole amount. now I have a bad credit mark on my credit score and they will not take them off because they show their records as accurate. Maybe this is a way to make extra money from late fees.
I have always enjoyed doing business with bank of America. They are always able to give me quick and accurate info regarding my accounts. The ATM is also my favorite thing about this bank. I rarely ever have to go into the bank, the atm can do everything. I have been doing business with them since 2010 and plan on doing business with them for another 10 years.
