The convoluted organization table must flow from Lewis and Moynihan, no? The New BAC is cobbled together from insane particles. Its legacy will  be a case-study in business psychosis at a funny farm turned into a spin-bin for quack bankers.

There depositors are in for a very very rude awakening.  Like Bank of America would have done that without the okay of somebody in the govt. is BS.  You don't even hear a whisper from congress about it or the president, just the FDIC and a few others.  This was done and allowed to happen and a few agencies where told to make a big stink out of it.  The govt. must have been told that if we didn't get these derivatives off of our books and into a backed book with the govt., they would default and start a chain reaction of insured derivative owners running to get their money.

Yes Bank of America, tell me what I want and need. I fully trust you and your "customer teams". I can bring the vaseline too.


Somebody stop this ride, I want to get off!

I saw that too. I closed out my account about a month ago. Wish I could participate in Bank Transfer Day and close out my account AGAIN. Rat bastards.

Me too. My wife & I opened accts with a credit union. They were busy that day. When my wife needed to go there again today she said the place was "buzzing" with people opening accts.

Hey, why don't you open a new account with them. Then you can close it out again so you don't miss out!

Awesome idea!

Hi BoA, I changed my mind and I like you again. Please go through the trouble of opening a new account for me. Actually open three. I have three stacks of $1 bills worth $100 each, and they all need to go in separate accounts. Thanks! Now I've changed my mind - close 'em.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

You can easily tell when someone hasn't really gotten past first grade when they start mocking people's names.

....but I just can't help it!

Dean Euthanasia? Good luck getting a loan?

Susan Faker? Interacts with MERS?  Good title there?

Walter Elcock?  Not touching this one, even at this distance!

Laurie Readhead?  help me out. Buzz? Akak?  LH?  WB7?

(from Dr. Strangelove: "Bat Guano, is that really your name?")

Get your money out of Bank of America.

Oh wait, police officers do not allow customers into branches who want to close their account.

Your money is not your money any more.

Online banking, dude.  Just open an account at another bank or CU and then transfer your balance.  Or do what I did and buy lots of PMs and deplete your account.  Then, go to your BoA branch and tell them you have no money in your account and that you want to close it.

Better yet, zero out your account and leave it so it can accrue ANALysis and miscellany fees. That way they can put those on their P&L statement. Guffaw!

Online transfers work wonders. One never has to step foot in the place. And then close the account by a Dear John letter, preferably through the online system.

Curiously, can you just withdraw all your money and leave the account open with zero balance?

It'd be like a zombie bank account. How fitting: a zombie bank with zombie bank accounts.

If you incur and leave unpaid fees for violating minimum balance rules,

could they reduce limits or raise interest rates on any credit cards you may hold with them?

Maybe the fees just accrue until non-payment reaches felony status?

They are twisted, sick, and perverse.

A clean. complete closure might be the best action.

All these firms should just buy communication templates from someone on the web and dispose of their communications/marketing dept. Thereby insert favorite key word(s) here:

focus, align, strategy, going forward, synergy, drive efficiency, realize, drive, blah blah blah blah blah blah

People aren't bankrupt till the banks tell them they are.

Banks aren't bankrupt till the people tell them they are.

Since the introduction of the fed the banks haven't had to admit bankruptcy until ALL of them were bankrupt.

The cops are just there to keep people from telling them they are bankrupt.

Switched my business accounts to a local credit union from another credit union.I was told that my previous credit union was losing so much money on business loan defaults they started charging large monthly fees to start pushing out their business clients. This was from the mouth of a banker.

Anyway, at the new credit union we were told about the wave of new customers fleeing BofA. In fact we had to wait one hour to meet with a banker to open our new account because of the packed waiting room. unions.
