A Bank Now Leaves A Customer Drowning in Uncertainty

A bank now leaves a customer drowning in uncertainty as its ATM mistakenly processed only $200 out of a $2,000 check.

The Bank of America customer now fears they won’t make rent after being advised the situation wouldn’t be remedied for weeks.

While automated teller machines, or ATMs, are meant to make transferring funds a seamless process, this isn’t always the case.

After the user deposited a personal check for $2,000 at a banking center in Massachusetts, the machine misread the amount as $200.

The user said they immediately went to the bank’s staff on the second floor to explain the situation.

A representative told them the issue would resolve itself and the user could expect to see the remaining $1,800 in their account that day.

The next day, the user said there was no money in sight.

That’s when a surprising email arrived in their inbox, reports The-Sun.

The automated email told the user they would only receive $200 and had to wait until the end of the month.

Bank of America was holding the check to “help verify funds.”

“I know the numerical amount on the check reads as $2,000,” the user wrote.

“I looked at and read that directly. They also tried speaking with three customer service representatives who didn’t prove helpful.”

The user emailed Bank of America’s chief executive officer and its president of retail banking but didn’t hear back.

“This is really not a great situation for me to be in, as I need to pay my rent and bills from the $1,800 being held by BoA,” the user wrote.

“I canโ€™t afford to wait ten days for those funds to be available.”

A bank customer now goes into debt after a misleading offer involving a $200 bonus after spending $1,000 failed.

A Bank of America client is seething after they felt misled by the bank they did business with for 16 years.

The user vented on Reddit, explaining how they had been banking with Bank of America for half their life.

“Bank of America will not take care of you,” they wrote.

They said they took out their first credit card by signing up with a representative who said they’d get a financial perk.

They were told the credit card had a $200 bonus cash promotion if they spent $1,000 within 90 days of opening the account.

“I was made to pay a $100 security deposit to open the line of credit,” they said.

They weren’t informed this changed the card and the offer they were eligible for, reports The US Sun.

The user said they struggled to spend all that money in such a tight time window.

Still, they were committed to getting the reward.

“I’ve worked my butt off taking extra shifts so that I could afford a little extra spending โ€” building my credit and working towards that sweet sweet bonus cash,” they wrote.

They said the extra cash was vital since they were preparing to move into their first apartment.

The customer called Bank of America twice to confirm they met the obligations to earn their reward.

They said they were disconnected on the first call, but only after waiting about 30 minutes.

“When I finally got someone on the second try, I was immediately told they didn’t see any promotions on my card/account,” they said.

The user discovered they were misinformed about the credit card they signed up for when they started the process.

They had registered for a secured card which wasn’t eligible for the $200 promotion.

“Also, the deposit listed on the new webpage was different from what I was made to pay,” they wrote.

“So another discrepancy on Bank of America’s part.”

The user asked if they could get direct credit to their account, but the representative said this wasn’t possible.

They were frustrated since the bank responded to the mishap by saying, “Sorry for the misinformation.”

“Time to look into another bank or credit union,” the user wrote.

Social media users posted their thoughts on the thread.

“There is no more loyalty in business,” one Redditor replied.

“A giant global bank doesnโ€™t give a cr*p about one consumer account?” another user asked.

“I am shocked. Shocked! Well, not that shocked. Find a local bank or credit union.”

“Bank of America should be avoided like a filthy public toilet in a train station,” one person added.
