Well it sure is nice of them to give everyone a warning isn't it? I suggest any banking with BoA take WL seriously and take heed the notice, then donate their money for tax exemptions, while our dollar is still worth something.

So far I know Chase and BOA require a persons fingerprint to get their check cashed. I have already pulled out all my money from Chase and will never do any business with any such back that demands a persons fingerprint unless they "join up" with their ban. (like BOA)...

I wonder if this won't be a replay in history. What could BOA have done that would be supposedly shattering to their business?
Perhaps trading with the enemy?
Prescott Bush and 6 other directors of Union Banking Corp were shut down in 1942 for doing this when they where supplying Nazi Germany with US funds.
Pakistan was caught funding the Taliban in an earlier released cable while the US was supplying Pakistan with a billion dollars a year. Maybe BOA was the bank doing the transactions? Time will tell.

This seems to be a public service announcement. I suspect they are going to expose wrongdoing of a magnitude that it will take the bank down. This is so the little guy can escape. Makes a change.

I agree with the earlier poster. I think in the changed circumstances of the ongoing vendetta the bank leaks will be coming out sooner rather than later.

I couldn't agree more.

Why people are still supporting their corrupt overlords is anyone's guess. Complete laziness I suppose.

We need alternatives too though. If I could find a local bank, one which truly keeps out of global banking corruption and lends to local businesses, that is where my money would be.

Unfortunately, we don't have them here in the UK. Just like every other industry the little indispensable guys are hounded, attacked, crushed and destroyed by the global corporations.

And all because the Sheep are too brain-dead to see what the problem is.

oah good old bank of america lol.... i had a checking and credit card account with those scumbags a few years ago i loved being charged 100 dollar overdraft fees on the credit card while being well within my limits every single month when i called to solve the issue they said "we will take care of this immediatly" which was total bull**** then i begin to recieve 35$ late fees on my checking account every month while im doing everything properly just goes to show the integrity of americas largest bank rob the account holders blind untill they cant possibly pay off the account and then charge the account off (yes i did lose my job but the bank was more than happy to do nothing for me other than rob me) and make MORE MONEY of course they got taken to court by some people but it was definatly kept quiet to keep people from getting on the band wagon about the whole situation

I too left Bank of America a few years back for it's weak security on customer accounts, no notification when they know your account has been breached thus shrinking the time window you have to file for relief. There were some ATM skimmers in the area, but there was also an internal BoA employee that was busted stealing from customer accounts that had little activity.

I had an arrangement that a savings account would cover the checking account should I overdraft, but they constantly came up with some excuse (new rules, wrong forms, lost or expired agreement etc) every time they gave me over draft fees and they would always try sell me a credit card or some other product after such an event. Then they would purposely change the order of transaction processing by placing the largest transactions first so they could change me a $29 dollar processing fee for buying a dollar thirty $1.30 chocolate bar at the supermarket even though the $1.30 charge was made days prior to the overdraft event.

Nothing like $200 worth of fees after spending less than $50.

While BoA could process ATM & checks immediately instead the software is designed so that they sit on them (withhold transaction posting) for several days purposely trolling for overdraft events in which they can rearrange and process transactions in an order that pays them the most fees.

Their systems maintain multiple accounts. The real numbers account & the numbers that the customer sees when they make an inquiry. This is the setup. You check your ATM to see how much you have left to spend but it is a lie, they wont give you the real number. Thus even though you pay them to keep track, you have to keep a separate ledger with your real account total (like the Banks real number account) an old fashoned paper checkbook or personal computer ledger . The ATM system is convenient, but they know most don't have the time to write such event immediately in the check book or computer thus opening you up to losing track & triggering fees.

I finally left my BoA accounts after some overdraft fees that put my account a less than 20 dollars in the negative. After losing a dispute over the fees I attempted to close my accounts & they refused unless I payed. I didn't & they racked up fees every month until it reached more than $200 and they attempted to block me from opening accounts with other Banks.

Bank of America has to be the most unethical Bank on the Planet. I fully support Wikileaks position and I'm now working to get me over 70 mother to drop her BoA accounts.

And even that's only a savings account.

I agree. I am too considering changing my banks to a local bank or credit union and shying away from the national banks especially because of the entire Wachovia to Wells Fargo fiasco after the bailouts. I am already a member of a credit union, but I only have a savings account with them. I think if more people did this it would help out the local economies and show the big banks that we are more than just a blank check.

The Banking Crisis simply explained...
Young Paddy bought a donkey from a farmer for £100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey's died.'
Paddy replied, 'Well then just give me my money back.'

The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I've already spent it.'
Paddy said, 'OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.'

The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

Paddy said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

The farmer said, 'You can't raffle a dead donkey!'

Paddy said, 'Sure I can. Watch me.. I just won't tell anybody he's dead.'
A month later, the farmer met up with Paddy and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'
Paddy said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two quid a piece and made a profit of £898'

The farmer said, Didn't anyone complain?'

Paddy said, 'Just the guy who won.
So I gave him his two quid back.'
Paddy now works for the Royal Bank of Scotland

OK fellow conspiriatti, set me straight then; is the Wikileaks saga genuine, or a ruse? I mean, if it's all a NWO plot, then why would they really be out of favor, or attack part of the system that is orchestrating it? No wonder mainstream society looks at us conspiracy theorists as nutjobs.

I have had problems with BofA in the past as well. I do agree that they are unethical. However, I think that to assume that BofA is the bank WL/Assange has information on is premature. The Tweet may be just in response to BofA freezing WL accounts. However, it is not lost on me that WL probably wants you to assume from their Tweet that it is BofA they have information on to release.

My opinion is that WL should release the information they have about it. I have a hard time with these WL statements without the information being released. It just seems they are another entity keeping the secret from us at this point, no matter what the reason may be.

Haha, this explanation is brillant. l'm just guessing here of course, if Wikileaks leaked that BoA knew all along about the dead donkey or even planned the lottery [derivatives] full knowing the donkey was dead, now THAT would be some news.

saying goes " u cant flog a dead donkey" but BOA and other corrupt banks have been doing it for decades, only now people are waking up...i hope the WL cable is about the BOA (which bank of scotland is an affiliate) perhaps if people see just how corrupt the rothchilds are then maybe they will be brought to their knees...then next stop...the fed reserve!!

Hate BoA. Had a credit card with them.

Never again. They don't care if you're unemployed (which I was at the time I had it), they will not haggle or negotiate a lower monthly payment.

I hope Bank of America closes forever.. They have screwed me royally..

When i turned 18, i got a checking account so i could get direct deposit at work.. Had it for about a month and they said i was writing fraudulent checks to the amount of $10,000..

I tried fighting it, and even demanded evidence of the checks that i supposedly wrote.. They didn't..

I got a lawyer, and he said there was nothing he could do, either..

Now i can't get a job anywhere that requires a credit check, as i come up as a fraud.. I spent a year in Casino College, learning to be a card dealer, and graduated with 100% (Passed all 13 games without messing up a single time, a HUGE rarity), and would be a valuable asset to any casino, but none are able to bypass the credit check, meaning i can't work outside of small lame events, and the World Series if i wanted to shell out 10k of my own money to make 2k..

I hope B of A burns to the ground and the CEO's die of slow horrible testicular cancer

I have run into a number of cases where if you close your account with BoA a year or two later you will start getting phone calls from a company called NCO Financial Systems INC.
They are bill collectors and they are trying to collect service charges on canceled credit cards.
the problem is these charges are AFTER you have paid the card off or if you canceled and later clean out your account.

Many people are dropping and paying off there credit cards.
But keeping there bank accounts open for a period after the card has been canceled,
The bank is not recognizing the period between the canceling of the card and the closing of the bank account
They are claiming that the card is still valid till the account is closed and all the money removed.
Then is someone that you used the card with reports the card use weeks or months later and tries to collect money the bank can still collect or sell your account to this company for collection.
Ether the BoA computer system is screwed up and not showing the credit cards have been canceled or the bank is selling a fake debt.

OR is this a way to get even with people fleeing the high charges by moving there money to a new bank.

The fraudulent checks thing happened to me too. I was 26 and it was SunTrust bank. It was before the Identity theft laws. I went through a police investigation and was cleared (I am white, had no kids, was at work in GA when the checks were passed in Detroit, MI by a black woman with a girl baby in a stroller! They caught her on camera at a couple of locations.)

IT RUINED my life because it ruined my credit- it was over 100+ checks - the cops said she was a pro b/c she wrote them all in amounts just below what the stores took to get manager's approvals.

It costs to get the checks and affadavits - I'd get transunion cleared up and then something would happen at Experian. I was just lucky we'd just bought a home when it happened or I'd never have one. Those databases share info or something - I got caught in a loop! I'd clear one, and the crap would show back up on another, get that cleared, and then it was back on the first. The crap just keeps replicating!

I understand your plight. I totally do. People that it did not happen to would never know how it could affect you for years and years. I would have been better if I'd went bankrupt.
