Goodbye after 47 years
I joined Bank of America in 1964.
It has been a good relationship, except for the last year when I fell into a trap set by a telemarketer leading one to think they were with B of A.
They said I would receive my credit report monthly, if I would accept their great offer. If I didn't like it, I could cancel within 30 days and no charge would be made.
I received nothing so I called to cancel. They said, you'll receive your report in a week. I said, OK, I would pay more than the $14.95 to get it from another company, as I had experienced. Nothing is free.
I never received anything for a couple of month and I called again. They kept me by saying, it's coming soon. I'd forget about it for a while and can't see my bank statement without a magnifying glass. Nothing again.
I called and cancelled for good. That's the first time they told me it's on the computer. I'm an old man and can't see or use a computer. Had I know, I wouldn't have accepted their offer.
I just received a bank statement from B of A, including a bill for $14.95, saying for Free Credit Report. If it's free, why have I paid $170 for nothing? Now another two months and I just received their note saying we can't help you, it's your responsibility.
Well, it seems it's time to say goodbye after 47 years.
