There, wasn't that easy?
You are right, City-Data is a lot cheaper than a shrink. Are you feeling better yet?

If it is any consolation, this kind of stuff happens in other countries too. I got screwed out of about $500K in Switzerland by a biiig bank.

Now, I am wary. I am currently with Wells Fargo in the US and am about to buy a couple more houses. Happily I do not need mortgages on them but when I asked WF how they felt about me borrow from them they told me that by credit score was bad and that they could not lend to me. I pointed out that I pay cash for my houses and they were still sorry but more polite.

The banks in the UK are just as voracious. I have now moved all my UK money to smaller organisations as I DO NOT trust the ba$7@rd$.

Hmmm. this works. I feel better too .

If you are interested, I know a bank where you can easily get free checking, some with a lot of free services, and some basic, depending upon your balance and banking habits. Free ATMs anywhere, all the time. No hidden fees, and a human being always answers the phone and goes to any length to make sure you are happy. This bank has 8 billion in assets and can offer any and all services that BOA can, but without the hassle. We do, however, charge $35. for wire transfers.
Arriving late Monday Nite and will be there for 10 days.
Let's talk next week.
John

How many different ways can they say it? They don't want consumer banking customers!

They make their money on wall street. Not off all the common people that come in to bother them with questions.

Their consumer bank customers are like battered spouses that just won't leave no matter how much they are abused.

But they are all alike. Battered spouses have choices. Battered bank customers have few choices.

Do you think that's saying that they do charge to view them online or that they do not charge to view them online? To me that sounds like it's saying they do not charge to view them online, but I could see how in bank speak that may mean that they do.
Correct. In the column description of" imaging @$3.00", it doesn't say that "it allows you to look and print"( for free.)

In any event I am confident that I am going to have these charges removed and the monies returned to my account.

I'll keep the board posted but it may take several days until I can go to the branch and do a face to face. The big problem may be that I can't find anyone to go face to face with!
HELLO, ANYONE HOME? YOU? YOU'RE THE SECURITY GUARD. ANYBODY ELSE?

But if pink was a premier something or other then he/she is more than just a "consumer banking customer." Why would all of us commonfolk not have to pay to view checks online but he/she does?

The customers at BofA who get real attention are those who are qualified to become a member at U.S. Trust which is BofA's private bank for well off customers.

I don't think when people refer to consumer banking they are talking about the MMs net worth required for private banking. BA isn't the only institution to offer Private Banking services, and these services, too, have fees.

BoA called me at 5pm the day before my closing to tell me that, sorry, you need to be at your new job for 60 days before you can close.

I told them that everything I own was on a moving truck. I had to escalate way up in the chain and get them to "waive" their policy that the lower level broker failed to remember. Major stress. I wish Wells would buy my loan from them.

And hey, Caddy, I'm a c-corp now.
And that's corp, not cup.
