BOYCOTT THE CROOKS OF BANK OF AMERICA

Close Your Bank Of America Accounts

I am calling for everyone that reads Times Square Gossip to boycott The Bank Of America. I have had it with their underhanded business practices. If you have their credit cards or have a account in their bank, cancel it. I never look at credit card bills, I just pay them online every month. I never look at the interest rates, I just always assume that they are the same as always. Well yesterday I just happened to look for once and was I shocked. They raised my rates from 17 percent to almost 26 percent. I could not believe it. I always pay on time, I always pay 2 or three times the minimum due and I have had this card for years. My credit score is 702 which is considered excellent. I was outraged. I called them up today, and they told me they had sent me a notice last March ( One year I didn't notice the higher rate) and that I had the option of not using the card and still pay the low rate or if I used the card, the higher rate prevailed. I said, why would I care about a cheaper rate on a card if I couldn't use it and if I did I would pay the higher rate. I asked them why my rate was raised in the first place. They said they reviewed my account and I was now considered a higher risk. A higher risk? I pay on time, I always pay more than minimum, and I have a high credit score. They said that's what they decided but since I was unhappy, he could give me a rate of 23 point something. So I said let me get this straight, " I pay on time on the credit card for years, I pay more than minimum, I have a excellent history and score and this is the way you treat a customer for many years?" I told him to cancel my credit card. I don't want to deal with a sleazy bank like Bank Of America." I am paying off the credit card in full when the final bill arrives ( Besides it's only 15 hundred owed anyway) and next week I am canceling my checking and savings accounts with them too. They charge higher rates than the Mafia. This is also just one horror story on The Bank Of America. I have so many more on what they have done over the years to my checking accounts. I never switched because I have several direct deposits and didn't want to go through the task of finding another bank and calling all my direct deposits and switching them. But now I will find a new bank this week and The Bank Of America can go FU*K themselves. I have millions of readers, and I urge anyone that has accounts with them to close them. If you also have horror stories on them, please tell them below by clicking comment or e-mail them to me and I will post. I will also be posting this story on all our sister websites. I will be posting more horror stories every couple of weeks, so stay tuned.
BOYCOTT BANK OF AMERICA !

I refuse to do business with B of A, Then, my credit card company was bought up by them!!!! I am making payments but can not afford to pay off any time soon. Wish I could.

I still have a rate of 7.9 per cent but best call in the morn. Thanks, James!

Apply for another credit card and then do a balance transfer. Most credit card companies have low rates for new customers. Then call Bank Of America and tell them their service sucks and cancel card. They have to be hit where it hurts and thats their profits. Pick a company with a rewards program and you should make out better.

Bank of America gave us the finger. We always paid in time initially had interest rate of 3.99they increased it to 24.99. I attempted to negogiate with them they said your credit line was to high thus they could not work with us. They told us to go to credit counselor that perhaps then they would negogiate with us. We are working on giving them the finger back. my wife and I sold my 401K from my previous job and we are going to pay our entire account and close those money hungry bullies. I rather lose 5-6% gain in a year then pay fucking 24.99%.

Boycott m of A and FIA they are the same bastards.

Old thread I know but I had to chime in. Here's something that happened at my local BOA branch a couple of years ago. I walked in with a guy I was buying a used car from. I needed a cashier's check. The greeter woman asked if she could help us so I told her why I was there. Instead of just helping me, she got all cute, asking "Is it a good car? Is he charging you a fair price?" Then, the bombshell..."Whatever you do, don't let him Jew you down!" Boom. I am Jewish but don't really look it. The guy I was with is Jewish too and does look it. I was speechless. The other guy said "Lady, I can't believe you just said that...I'm Jewish!" Her reply? "I thought so, that's why I said it!" I have seldom seen such absolute ignorance on display. I and the other guy complained and complained, going from the branch manager to corporate to the Anti-Defamation League. The woman ended up denying that she ever said any such thing, and apparently that was good enough for her BOA overlords. She sucks, they all suck, and I hope her redneck ass got laid off this week!

Bank of America is pissing people off all over these days:

I recently had a good experience with TD Bank. At least at the branch near me they have excellent customer service. Reminds me of how banks USED to be before they seemed to think we should be grateful for them taking our money.
