    I love BoA - they tried to say I had a $70k mortgage that was 2 years overdue. I asked for the note and they kept hanging up on me - I got a lawyer. They refused to accept my written consent for him to act on my behalf and violated a cease and desist order. It cost us nearly $1000 to get this issue resolved (something they have not "officially" done yet). They also cut a property tax escrow check for my mom the year after she cancelled her escrow account... they tried to make her cash the check and pay them back with interest. Just more proof that the system is not designed with the consumer in mind, but the "too big to fail" institutions that keep merging into larger and larger corporate entities.

    good for the attorney! and i have NEVER said THAT before! suffering a foreclosure sucks (personal experience) so i hope there was a lot of anxiety suffered on the part of that bank manager and his staff.

    i do have a question though. in the midst of this mortgage meltdown/economic crisis due to manipulation of the mortgage rules, why hasn`t anyone or any bank/financial institution been prosecuted for their crimes?

    in the midst of this mortgage meltdown/economic crisis due to manipulation of the mortgage rules, why hasn`t anyone or any bank/financial institution been prosecuted for their crimes?

    Because the banks are more powerful than the government.

    We have the same issues over here in the UK. The people who run the banks basically said "STFU or we`ll relocate to another country" and proceeded to award themselves vast bonuses from the taxpayers money used to bail out the banks.

    Imagine if the UK lost the financial markets of London or the USA lost the financial markets of New York.

    The banks are the government. Just look at how many former banker are employed for high level government jobs. Heres an example.

    There must be more to the story than this. How could Bank of America "try to foreclose" on the couple`s home when the couple didn`t have a mortgage?

    BOA has been doing blatenly illegal actions like this for a while, they are just stepping up the game. most of it goes unheard of because they take advantage of people who really do not know what their rights are

    no there isn`t more to this sotry...try doing some research before you speak. this is not all that uncommon.

    BECAUSE, and stay with me here, mortages are ALL tied up in the secuities market and NO ONE really knows who owns what mistakes like this are often made.

    but hey, nice way to jump in and defend the bank an automatically assume big business has our best interest at heart! they appreciate your willingness to go along with anything they tell you is correct.

    Speaking as a previous customer of BOA I have nothing positive to say about them. Based on my experience I will never bank with them again and pity any fool that does.

    I LOLed and then cheered when I read this today. I f***ing HATE Bank of Amerika! If they were the last bank in the whole country, I would cash my checks at one of those Shylock check-casing stores and pay my bills with money orders from 7-11 before I would EVER do business with them.

    Found the news article on this: Link

    Apparently, the couple bought a foreclosed home owned by BoA, paid cash for it, but someone at the bank fudged it up and issued a foreclosure on them instead.

    BoA tried to screw me hard out of some money by means of lying to me about terms and conditions. they paid their own bill, but still this is very sweet to watch.
    FY, BoA

    Yeah I`ve had my bad luck with BoA. Got lied to and told if I got direct deposit from the place I worked I could get no fees on a checking account. What they failed to tell me was the managers got DD, NOT a single employee, because the place I worked for refused to do DD for anyone else.

    Then I had them close the account. Well they somehow left $5 in my savings and a few weeks later I get a letter in the mail telling me I have an overdraft with the monthly fee. On an account that I closed. They say they`ll send the remaining balanced that got left in there, then sent me a check for $2.50. Bunch of asshats.

    Good for hime. However, I`ve noticed that most of the time banks screw with you up until just before you have the option to do this, and then give you your money. Bunch of non-nice individuals.

    Love this, but I think it`s funny when the lawyer catches himself at 1:25 where he almost calls the foreclosure on his clients a mistake. Classic lawyer can`t say the wrong thing, regardless good for this guy!!
