Bank of America now closes a seven figure account without warning according to a distressed Reddit user who shared their experience.

Banks often reserve the right to close clients’ accounts abruptly with little explanation, reports The-Sun.

“This was the case with one Reddit user, whose seven-figure account was recently closed by Bank of America.”

The Redditor sought advice online and expressed surprise at the closure.

“I’m so incredibly lost,” they posted on the online forum.

The user, whose post garnered over 50 responses, shared that it all began when they called the bank.

While asking about checks they had deposited a month ago, he said the phone call ended with an abrupt notice.

“I was told at the very end of the call, ‘Are you aware that BofA is closing your account as a business decision?’” they said.

The client was surprised considering their status: They were a diamond tier preferred rewards member.

Diamond tier clients, who must have maintained an average daily balance of over $1 million to apply, receive unique benefits.

However, the status does not make accounts immune to cancellation.

Eventually, the client got through to a supervisor.

“They gave me no reasoning stating it is just a business decision,” the client said. “I’m totally shocked.”

Some users explained that banks do not need to explain.

“Your account agreement probably describes that your bank can close your account at any time for any reason,” one commenter said. “It does come as a surprise to most people when this happens.”

A variety of transactions can trigger a bank to take action against a client.

Often, they use automated systems to detect unusual account behavior.

If they suspect an account is a liability, they retain the right to cancel it, reports The-Sun.

Frank Nez’s Stock Portfolio

Wondering which stocks Frank Nez is holding? Which stocks is Frank Nez buying?

    In the old days banks operated on paper and ink with bulky records. Profits were low yet still, they prospered. Right now, electronic transfers make banking smooth, efficient, and inexpensive. Profit margins should be high. Yet now they fail. I am concerned.
