I was a customer of bank of america for eight years, i had a checking, savings and mortgage with them. They are terrible to deal with. Not only did they close my checking account as a few items were returned, no fault of mine, they never even gave me the courtesy of notification. On top of that they froze my account and charged me $35. 00 for each transaction they did not pay. I wrote to the new york state banking dept. And they are looking into it. The bank is too big. They do not care about you as a customer. My friend lost her job and was trying to get a mortgage modification and they promised a trial modification and never came through with it. She had to go to an attorney for help to keep her home. Every time you speak to customer service you get someone who never knows what is going on and they put you on hold forever. My advice, stay away. I am with a hometown bank now and no issues.
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.
