I don’t bank with them, and my office is not in their local office building. I have posted articles on all my local and regional Facebook groups about Bank of America dropping of McMillan Rifles.

Dumped BOA years ago when I accidentally found if you were Hispanic you didn’t even need a SSN to open an account or call through their automated phone banking...

Pure insanity for sure...

I have a Bass Pro credit card that is through BoA. So they don’t mind if people use their card to buy a gun, but they don’t want to extend credit to a company that makes firearms? Makes no sense.

I have no friends — none — that are over 55 and have not been laid-off from their long-time jobs and replaced with workers who cost the company less. If there is another special interest group that needs forming, it’s us: Over 55 and Screwed Out of Our Jobs. Where’s OUR bailout??

I am seeing this happen with greater frequency as well. Hmmm.....

Scratched BoA when they started issuing credit cards to illegals.

Never, ever take any IT subcontracting jobs for BofA and their pet crook hiring front partners called the Roelker Group and Net-Tech Consultants. I regret my time with them. Endless horror stories and Dilbert fodder.

I refuse to work for any bank whatsoever. They all suck. Telecoms too. They suck as bad.

When a business refusing to deal with people that are perverted homosexuals. That business is attacked by the federal gov on the grounds of discrimination. So what is the difference here?

I have intensely disliked BOA for almost 50 years, and never miss an opportunity to bad mouth them.

It would serve BOA well if by withdrawing their business, pro-2A folks caused the bank to go bust!

We desperately need a list of pro-2A banks!

Not that I doubt your assertion, FRend, but where is there a source for the original B of A being named Bank of Italy ?

Another friend told me the same thing. I didn’t know about illegals being welcomed without ID, but did end a couple accounts years ago. Just had one credit card but it will be ended in another week following the auto balance pay I have set up. Will then call and cancel and let them know why.:)

Not sure about mobile home but USAA bank is the best bank in the world IMHO. You have to be prior military for P&C but ANYONE can use the bank. We have had accounts there since they started banking services in the mid 1980s & have never had a bad thing to say.

Are you some kind of nut?

What do you mean by ‘source?’

Anyone that has lived near San Francisco longer than just the hippie era knows that the original BofA is really the renamed Bank of Italy.

“Keep and bare arms” How about Keep and BEAR arms?

Just a bit of error that bugs me.

Well, you can't just flash a weapon just anywhere.

Thanks for the ping.

I had absolutely no idea that such profiling existed in the banking industry.

If I had an account, I would cancel it. I will forward this to some folks I know that do business with BOA.

I have several different cards. I have no balance on any of them. This is just in case stuff, if I see something that works, I can access easy quick monies.

Your original post sounded like you only had 1 card :~)

It’s important to know that the obligations to pay balances due may be passed on to your heirs.

My family did business with B of A in the 1950s via their overseas branches.

The bank was called Bank of America for as long as anyone in the foreign service or military knew of.

I was looking for some historical notes, perhaps from the bank itself.
ps; lighten up.

I've had USAA for my vehicle insurance since 1978. AWESOME, I'll admit. But I need a local bank to deposit cash and checks into so I don't think it would be convenient.

BoA Statement:

http://www.facebook.com/BankofAmerica

We want to let you know that we hear your comments and questions regarding one of our customers. While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry.

We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nation's defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year.

McMillan counter-response:

http://www.facebook.com/McMillanGroupInternational/posts/10150962394698368

In response to Bank of America's public statement:

The statement we [McMillan] posted was an accurate account of the events that transpired late last week. McMillan Group has been in good standing with B of A and a loyal customer for the past 12 years. We were told that we must finalize all of our accounts because we manufacture firearms.

McMillan cannot speak for Bank of America's company wide policies, but we can speak out about our personal experiences.

We [McMillan] kindly suggest that if Corporate Bank of America has no policy against conducting business with firearms manufactures, then they should communicate these policies with their regional Vice Presidents and other management.

I think the gun was the interest up front and then you got your money back at the end. Does that sound right?

I dumped BofA some years ago and have never looked back.

Anyone who still has an account there just needs to find another banking institution and move their money.

Oh, I don’t know. I’m a blue state east coaster, so they never have gun deals at our banks :(. It’s just that, depending on the interest rate, and the value of the gun and optics, could be a bad deal. Back in the day, it wasn’t unheard of for a CD to pay 3-4% (especially a 17 year CD). So at 3% (compounded annually), you’d have 3200 (3700 for 4%). So unless the value of the gun and optics was over $1200, it could’ve been a bad deal.

Now if they gave you the gun AND paid you interest, it would be a great deal.

IIRC it was a complete hunt package and all top of the line gear all firearms were Weatherby. There were two levels; one for about $2000 and one for something like $3800. But it's been so long.... It was the Bank of Boulder.

Second Update:

http://www.facebook.com/McMillanGroupInternational

We felt it important to let everyone know that we had a meeting with the Bank of America State President of Arizona. He asked for the meeting so that he could clear up any misunderstanding. We left the meeting confident that we had not misunderstood Mr Fox. I have since seen two different BOA statements that indicate that they now viewing this as a misunderstanding. The latest one stated that they were negotiating with the client to clear up the misunderstanding. Let me say as strongly as I can, we are not negotiating with Bank of America. Our position has not changed.

It is kind of silly for them to be that way. They sit in the Pentagon and outside nearly every military base soaking up cash.

I got out from under BofA home loan ... never been late ... and they treated me and my wife like we were “trash” after we requested an “Affordable refinance program” ... and turned us over to a collection agency ... and they too treated us with total disregard.
It took us two years to finally get a “no”, without even a phone call, but e-mail to let us know.
BofA has no customer service ... and is never going to get any of my future business of any kind. We got the re-finance through Envoy Mortgage, and are very pleased with them ... contact Gregory Mmanzanaares of Envoy Mortgage gmanzanares@envoymortgage.com 303-918-7712.
