a funny conversation with a Bank of America employee about illegals. I'm a Wachovia employee and I found it funny.

STATE OF AFFAIRS

A conversation between a Customer and Bank of America

Bank: This is the Bank of America, can I help you?

Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't want to do
business with you any longer.

Bank: Why?

Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants and I don't
think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do that, but
we can't stop you. I'll help you close the account.

What is your account number?

Customergives account number)

Bank: For security purposes and for your protection,
can you please give me the last four digits of your social
security number?

Customer: No.


Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information, but in
order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are.

Customer: Why should I give you my social security number?
The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is
issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have
social security numbers. You are targeting that audience
and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant
and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about
it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a
Social Security number, would you?

Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.

Customer: Why not?

Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in
Spanish We don't ask for that information when calling in
on the Spanish line.

Ah yes, the Bank of Latin America.

Utterly disguisting. I will be glad when my account with these bozos is paid off. I will be doing business elsewhere.

I look for the day when Bank of America goes down the toilet. I keep getting promos for credit cards from them, they are shredded and thrown in the trash.

What if you're an illegal immigrant from a country that doesn't speak Spanish? I wonder, how will BofA handle those calls?

Good one, Alanboy.

I started phasing BofA out of my life about six months ago. It was not easy and time consuming but I feel much better now.
