Complaint / review text:
I have an account in good standing with Bank of America for a line of credit. I received a letter in the mail essentially removing all of my available credit with a statement that is due for my past charges that were not even due yet. I had recently used this line of credit account 2 days earlier and cashed a check at my local bank with a Bank of America Line of Credit check.
I was totally unaware they had removed all of my available credit. Sure enough I go online to check my bank statement with my local bank and they withdrew the funds from the Bank of America check I had written 2 days prior leaving my bank balance in the red because Bank of America would not honor the line of credit check. The funds that were in my local bank account were to be used for an automatic withdrawal to pay my home mortgage.
So what happened is my mortgage payment did not get paid and I had to beg and borrow money to cover this payment. This was all due to Bank of America removing available credit to me without my knowledge. I had never missed a payment or never been late on a payment. To think they can do this to the people legally and get away with it makes my blood boil.
These are the same people that are working and paying their taxes so Bank of America can get billions of dollars in bail out money. There is something wrong with this whole picture. Bank of America should not be allowed to use the word 'America' to name their business. They behave like loan sharks and get away with it.
Boycott bank of america and let them fail.
