ummm, that’s not supposed to happen when things occur electronically. the only bottleneck is how fast you can pull the cash out of the machine.

What does it matter? lol

First Nachum posted a hit piece on BOA in News. Turns out it was bogus.

I’m no fan of BOA, but really. If you’re wanna chat about something, at least post it in chat.

US Bank has branches in California and so far has been excellent.

They have atms in most Safeways and of course at their branches.

We use their electronic bill pay which is free.

Don't believe it.

There was a technical glitch the other day but that happens to every bank periodically.

Here is a good link to look at banks in your area.

http://banktracker.investigativereportingworkshop.org/banks/?ref=patrick.net

Credit Unions are at less risk than banks today.
You can also look up Credit Unions at this same site.

We swtiched to a local credit union that only requires us to live or go to church in Orange County, CA.

Good Luck!

This is going to be a ripe time for fraudsters hitting BofA. ATM’s that far behind the processing curve is going to allow them a week or more on fraudulent transactions.

Same here.

My BOA transactions, alerts, bill paying, deposits, etc. have all been on time. I haven’t noticed any disruption or delay.

Sounds like a bit of website problems and a lot of disinformation.

There have been no delays with my BofA online transactions.

But saw a great commercial today for Ally Bank. They handed strangers a briefcase with $100,000 cash in it and asked them to watch it. At the end, they said something like no stranger took any money for watching our money - we believe banks shouldn’t either.

I seem to remember that you need to find the county that the Bank Headquaters is in. Then you will see the names of those credit unions. Try looking around, it was not the easiest site to navigate.

Check for local credit unions. They don't have quite the same profit motives as regular banks and most will not be moving to place monthly fees on debit cards. The idea was laughed out of the room at my credit union and I seriously doubt anyone running for board positions will support it.

As a side note - you've already been paying a lot of these for years through the backdoor. I know I've accounted for how much these transactions cost me. Merchant accounts aren't usually allowed to charge extra for using a credit or debit card but I can certainly raise my prices by 5% across the board to account for those costs. However, unlike most merchants I know (other than Specs liquor), I also give a 5% discount for paying with cash. =)

I bank with BofA and have for close to thirty years.

At no time has the bank been even one day behind in it’s normal course of business.

Over the last several months there has been a few glitches in the front end interface, but there has always been work-arounds provided. All my electronic payments have been processed normally whether initiated with the bank bill-pay system or payments made online to business concerns directly.

Please do not start or repeat bogus rumors concerning the bank I do business with.

We got notified by snail mail a week ago that they are doing upgrades to online banking and yes it is running slow. They also said there are 2 days it will be completely down.

I check our accounts several times a day and everything seems to be up to date, at least as much as it ever was.

As I stated in another post here, there has been a hitch in the normal online BofA interface over the last month or so, but there has always neen a work-around provided.

This is merely a web page problem and not a banking services problem.

There are no delays in bank processing and the like.

All deposits and normal transactions have been processed flawlessly in a timely manner.

I made a payment to an account early Sunday morning and they credited it on Saturday’s business day. That can’t happen if the bank is delaying business.

I don’t buy it. I login to my account everyday and have had no problems this week.

And every transaction shows up immediately including the $20 I took out of an ATM (theirs) this afternoon.

I would think that the transactions from physical ATM machines is on a different network than home on-line banking.

Is it just the home on-line banking that is clogged up?

Then why doesn’t the spokeman just say so?

From all of the news reports I’ve seen, they decline to comment.

Spokes-holes are notorious for not knowing the simplest of information concerning the institutions they work for. When they admit as much, it’s often true. I don’t know what else to tell you. All I know is that my observation of services has revealed the bank to be operating normally.

It is obvious that you are a John and Ken fan, it seems.

Personal observation is valid, fair enough.

I think the DOD should use all resources available to hunt them down.

Then if convicted have them taken to GITMO for re adjustment.

Thanks Dick—not like middle class families are suffering or anything...sure we will take another hit to the pocketbook so Durbin can get your campaign coffers filled :(

Just checked my accounts, the web site is working fine and everything is up to date.

TPTB set this whole collapse up, (remember Rham?) and letting BOA be one of the “fall” banks is part of it.

This nation is being swallowed up in debt, federal debt, state debt, municipal debt, homeowner debt, student loan debt, and you blame the average person who is watching this, wondering, what is going on? This is historically what happens when a credit expansion is allowed to get this big.

And BOA and all the rest of the TBTF’s are insolvent.
And so is Europe.
