Bank of America Mailer Calls Bay Area Woman a "Slut"
NBC Bay Area ^ | 2/7

Posted on 02/07/2014 12:10:28 PM PST by nickcarraway

A Bay Area woman was shocked to receive an insulting piece of mail from the Bank of America.

A Visa credit card offer from the bank sent to Lisa McIntire was addressed to "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire."

McIntire thinks a data entry person entered the offensive address, but said she doesn't understand how it got through the bank's system. She took to Twitter to get the Bank of America's attention.

The bank apologized in response and said they are looking into the situation.

Maybe they read it on a men’s room wall?

This is a serious issue.

Someone at Bank of America needs to explain how she is getting Sandra Fluke’s mail.

What a stupid thing to do. Some jealous peabrain with an axe to grind is hiding behind the system. They need to lose their job over this. In the old day’s the bank may have given the victim a toaster or microwave to placate her. Now, she may want a new Smartphone. or a waive of mutual fund fees.

I understand her anger in seeing her named typed like that! It’s Lisa Is A Slut MacIntire, not McIntire. Sheesh.

Most likely some “friend” or relative filled out one of those cards and sent it into the bank. From there, it’s all automated.

Should be “Lisa is an idiot McIntire”

Before she went to the press with this, nobody except maybe her mailman wondered if she was a really a slut. Now the whole world does.

Apparently, the bank's system didn't include protection against "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire" address gags.

My guess too. This the type of thing a hacked-off ex might do.

It’s the seriousness of the crime that counts.

When I was in high school we used to send in career information requests from magazines to different trade schools with our friends names and addresses. People would show up at our doors trying to get us to go to this or that trade school.

Someone pranked her by filling out a request with exactly that name on it.

By way of apology the bank sent her a $100 gift certificate to Victoria’s Secret.

Maybe it was a hacker that did nothing other than have some fun in the database. Then they waited for it to show up in the news. Proof positive to their friends that they really did what they said they did.

"Most likely some “friend” or relative filled out one of those cards and sent it into the bank. From there, it’s all automated."

My first thought as well. Years ago, I had a total @$$hat for a boss. Everybody in the office hated him. Always swearing and nothing good to say about anyone or anything. A real dou... well, anyway, he was married, a couple of college aged kids, country club life, fancy neighborhood, etc...

One day we found his address and sent in a couple of subscription cards in his name for some totally filthy sick perv magazines (they made Hustler look like Boys Life) BUT... for a little twist, we put a couple of his neighbors' addresses on the cards. ;-)

Yeah, I'm thinking in this case, this slut girl ticked somebody off.

Her twitter profile lists the following description: “Freelance writer for progressive causes. Worked for @emilyslist, @AFER, @GavinNewsom, and @googletalks. Ask me about my middle name.”

Draw your own conclusions from that.

She took to Twitter to get the Bank of America’s attention.

Why wouldn’t she start by calling the bank? Why the sudden rush to twitter? This makes me think she is an attention whore.
