Bank of America has been a total nightmare as far as I am concerned. This has got to be the most incompetent financial institution I have ever dealt with and I deal with a few. Chase, Wells Fargo, C.&F. are among the few that blows them out the water. I am right now getting ready to write a letter to their Human Resource about a problem I have had with them since the end of November that they cannot seem to get resolved. It is the employees they hire...they must be the rejects from all the other banks.
Another good reason to stay FAR away from the Bank of Amerika! they are as Left as Left can be and must be kept at a distance from all patriots.
He's complaining but why was he doing business w a corrupt bank that got a bailout w taxpayer dollars? Can't have it both ways. Most likely was taking advantage of some of their business owner perks and didn't care if they were corrupt or not.
I'd prefer to get the bank's side of the story before coming to any judgement. That is the reasonable thing to do, rather than jumping to conclusions about the bank being anti-gun or something.
Just took a sharpie and wrote "Do Not Use" accross my BOA Platinum Plus Visa Card. Then removed it from my wallet.
(in case I forget)
If I were that man. I would interview new banks, pick one, set up new accounts, then gradually transfer monies from Bank of America to the new bank. After making sure I had all the documents from B of A for tax purposes, I'd then close my accounts there and politely tell them to stick it where the sun don't shine.
I have BoA. I already hated them but this is it. See ya. I will make sure they know why they lost my business.
Remember, the banks are controlled by the Federal Reserve which is getting orders from the Regime. Any questions?
He should pull his money from BoA. That would be the first thing I would do. After I got off the phone with them I would set up another account with another bank then transfer everything from BoA to that account and let BoA know they no longer have my business.
As for me, looks like it's time to stop doing any business with BoA as well.
I just canceled an account I had with them this morning.
I had an allotment set up for a motorcycle loan a few years ago and when the bike was paid off I never stopped the allotment.Just used it a a savings account.
I just had USAA transfer it.Hahaha BoA
I called BoA to verify the transfer and told them why.
They were pissed off. Spread the word.I know I will.
It seems to me that every day now, the leftists are trying to take away our freedoms one way or the other. It's a slow bleed, but it appears they are becoming successful, one-day-at-a -time. :(
I sold all My B of A stock back before everything went into the toilet. While the stocks were still worth something.
B of A is becoming the obamessiah's bank of political correctness enforcement.
The officially, unofficial bank policy....If you do business in a politically incorrect business, your money will be appropriated.
No apologies for appropriating your monies either.
Doug Ross has had several great posts about this gun-grabbing business by the left. So today he has something for the publishers of gun owner names and addresses.
Unfortunately with the state sponsored hegemony of big banking this sort of 'corporatist' collaboration will increase along with the crony capitaism represented by Buffett and GE. Palin identified this long ago and has been a relentless critc.
Bank of America penalizes a man for selling guns, but they want to hold onto the gun money. This is more than just hypocrisy, it's plain theft. Who would want to do business with a bank like that?
We must support patriots that are being bullied by this regime. The government wants to disarm us so badly they can taste it.
If I lost ONE PENNY from this, I'd sue Bank of America for tortious interference with my business. I'd work with others to make radio, TV and Internet ads against that bank, and against people I'd personally name. I wouldn't accept any apologies; only money, and massive, lump sums of it.
Time to change banks. BoA has no right to put a hold on the money or for that matter an opinion as to his line of business as long as it is legal.
I have worked in banking and finance for 20 years. Banks are indeed allowed to put holds on deposits if they deem them to be suspicious. If someone suddenly has a large increase in deposits, that raises a red flag. Why was he doing business w BOA when they got taxpayer bailouts and was part of the mortgage meltdown? No doubt he took advantage of some perks and did not care that the bank has been involved in unethical business practices.
Isn't this the same Bank of America that was fined heavily for laundering money?
I guess money laundering is okay but legal guns are not.
I know how to end this now, it will not be liked by either side because both sides are guilty of it..But it is simply to show you how insane it is to take this out on law abiding citizens who did nothing wrong..How about we start holding the money of people who are defaulting on their parental duties..Fatherless children are more likely to get in trouble then any other group of kids..This is simply to show you how crazy this is..How about we have a registry of kids at risk, kids with mental problems..you can't do it..you can't put those kids at more risk , yet you are perfectly fine punishing people who had nothing to do with any of this..
This is NOT the first time B of A has pulled this

I hope all conservatives get this and take there business elsewhere. If business is going to start taking political stances I'm going to start choosing who I do business with differently. The wonderful thing about the free market is that it isn't political, it isn't racist, it isn't ideological. It's Freedom in markets. If B of A doesn't want to maintain the Freedom in its market then I'll go elsewhere. They have a right to do business anyway they want but the market is the last place we the people still have REAL POWER and I will exercise it.
