Bank of America sucks!

#78600 2 years, 12 months ago
I can't even call local branches to see if theres power cause the only # they give you is this 800 autimated # that wont let me talk to a representative. WTF is that, I gotta drive around and find one thats open --- def switching banks soon plus I get charged like 12 bucks a month for not having direct deposit, which keeps going up, it was 4 or 5 when I first signed up

that's all, sorry for the rant

Agreed! All banks do suck. There is still time to get in on this movement.

That's how it stands today. You decide if he was wise.

Since were on the topic of banks, I had a very pleasant experience at my bank today. I use Trustco Bank.

I entered in a drawing to win 10,000 dollars, and they told me the on Fridays you can come in and have PIE. NO JOKE. Thats the benefit of a smaller bank.

Edit: AND I get free checking.

Yes, banks are for profit and they are having lots of difficulty making money in this economy. Credit unions are not for profit so the fees are generally better.

Ever since Bank of America (BofA) took over US Trust company (a year or two ago) it has been a disaster. I work in an investment advisory firm and we are getting a lot of complaints from our clients about the decline in service with US Trust. We are slowly picking up some accounts due to the inept service at UST.

There is chatter that BofA will not survive too long. I tend to doubt that as they are the largest US bank, but they own Countrywide Mortgage Company which is also in extreme distress with so many properties in foreclosure. But I suppose BofA is "too big to fail" so if they properly write down their assets to properly reflect bad debts, the US taxpayers will come to the rescue when the world realizes they are insolvent. Unless of course somebody in politics wakes up, maybe occupy wall street will at least do that.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

whats nearby your home? you want somebody local but hopefully big enough that you can get cash all over,not always possible.i use ING and a local bank,ing has cash machine for free all over just log inand give em a zip code theyll tell ya where to find one.gat a local free checking account and transfer money from ing to the local bank as needed plus they pay intrest not as much as they used too but its till better than most or nothing at all
If i told ya all that went down,it would burn off both your ears
