BoA Blinked


Paige and her father were the receipients of a cashiers check from BOA this afternoon.
When ask to open a new account, without fees, Paige demured.
Let us give thanks, and check our statements, our kid's statements, and our grand kid's too.

How'd BOA miss this?

This is the little girl who was robbed by Bank (thanks for the Tarp) of America.



In the March 6, 2010 Economist appeared this article. Click on the story to enlarge it.



Reread the last line very carefully, and imagine how much stealing BOA could do in the interest of public service. It's a wonder they didn't think of it first.

Bank of America

Several years ago, ten year old granddaughter Paige, in the spirit of American capitalism, opened a custodial savings account at her local Bank of America office with the $100 she saved. She hasn't touched it since.

Monday she received a letter from the home office stating her account had been closed and the bank wanted the $11.07 she owed. Her parents called to ask, huh?

Monthly account fees they were told, its our thanks for the Tarp funds. It shows up on your month statement.

Paige doesn't receive a statement, she went green years ago.

Tuff, pay up, or will sic the dogs on you, the voice on the phone intimated.

Today, Paige is going to school late so the local branch manager can tell a 10 year old why he stole her money. Mom stands ready to go "trailer trash" on them (dad's quote) if they don't give it back.

I'll let you know.
