    Man Sues Bank of America for $1.7 BILLION TRILLION



    Man Sues Bank of America for $1.7 BILLION TRILLION -



    Demands an extra $200,164,000 for "miscellaneous fees"


    Infuriated with Bank of America’s customer service, Dalton Chiscolm decided to do what every other red-blooded American in his situation would do: He sued them.

    How much did he sue them for?

    Try $1,784 billion trillion, according to Reuters. That’s the number 1,784 followed by 18 zeros. It’s also more money than the world’s 2008 gross domestic product, which was comprised of a measly $60 trillion (that’s six followed by 13 zeroes). To top it off, he also wants an additional $200,164,000 for "miscellaneous fees."

    Chiscolm decided he was entitled to the money after he received inconsistent information regarding his bank accounts from “a Spanish woman” during numerous calls to Bank of America’s headquarters in New York City.

    District Judge Denny Chin gave his two cents in a written order released Sept. 24.

    “The claim is incomprehensible,” he wrote.

    Dalton Chiscolm should be thrown in jail for wasting the court's time.

    I think it's kinda funny myself. When I read the title I thought about the guy from Austin Powers too.

    But yeah, it is a waste of the court system's time and in the end, the pub the story receives won't make any difference in Bank of America's customer service. The only thing that will do that is people taking their money and going to another bank.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Maybe BOA should be thrown in jail for their thievery, deception, and lies against the USA. Not to mention their unlawful practices against their own customers and share-holders.

    Good for them I say. And if something noble comes out of drawing attention to big bank abuses then I would hardly call it a waste of time. Especially considering so much of the shit that the courts waste their time with everyday anyway.


    Here's an interesting example of someone who took action. After increasing her APR to nearly 30% for no reason whatsoever as so many banks did following the financial crisis of '08 and refusing to readjust the APR appropriately, she finally made a video, put it on youtube, got a bunch of hits, made national news, and THEN BOA called her back to let her know the APR would be adjusted back down to the original 13%.





    I should note that I don't use any credit cards. I paid them all off and tore them up long ago. I think people who charge non-essentials are plain dumb and contribute horribly to the grim financial situation in this country today, as much as our government encourages people to behave so irresponsibly (borrow borrow borrow SPEND SPEND SPEND!!). So I don't defend these consumers who fucked up charging stupid shit and now cry about the banks screwing them. I certainly don't defend the banks nor the government either regarding the credit and financial crisis.
    Is interesting to me though the dynamics involved in all of this and watching how it plays out between consumers, banks, and government.

    Last week, I had to go to BOA to fill out a direct deposit app with my wife... My wife is all about BOA, while I'm a local bank guy (the same bank I've had since my 1st checkbook when I was 16)... I get out of work at 3pm, and needed to be there for 4pm... So to kill some time, I went to the local bar and had a few wobbly pops to kill the time... Needless to say, once I got to the BOA branch, I was feeling good, and when I'm feeling good, I have a tendency to NOT control my mouth when associated to my true thoughts... When I got there at 4:03pm, I was told that I was fortunate to arrive in time, since "we close at 4pm"... I was like, "well, any real bank would stay open until at least 5pm, so working people like me can get to the bank in time"... My wife was not thrilled with that comment... When asked for two forms of ID, I gave them my driver's license, and my DEBIT card from "MY REAL BANK"... Throughout the 15 minutes we were there, I badgered them on their gay "banker" hours, and recent branch office closings 5 minutes away from this branch... When my wife and I got back to our vehicles, I was verbally spanked for my behaviour... AND of course, like any good woman, I had to hear about it later (about how embarrassed she was), about 4 hours later after I thought the coast was clear... Fuck, it's not like she ever SEES these fucking people since she does all her banking online, on top of the fact that they are CLOSED when she gets out of work at 5pm and has to do any cash deposits through their ATM machines... FUCK BOA...

    Gay banker hours. I like that.

    Who the heck can keep up with those hours anyways?? Nothing like being there for the customers. I hate banks.

    i love it when people try to justify not paying a debt on some made up bullshit reason. You know why the banks have been able to screw people with high interest rates? Because some people put themselves in a position to get screwed. Credit cards are not meant to a line of credit or a long term loan. People don't know how to use credit and then cry when they realize how expensive it is.

    Credit cards are the best value banking product in the world if used properly. They cost you nothing, they are convenient and many give you rewards. A short term loan with no interest and free rewards? Those evil bastard banks - how date they create such a thing.

    Yep, I remember a time when it seemed like BoA was gobbling up everything in sight. There was a time when it appeared Barnett Bank was huge, it then got gobbled up by Nations Bank which in turn was bought up by BoA a short time later.

    I can't even count how many times my mortgage has changed hands.

    The company I mortgaged my house with sold my note within a month, to some company that I had never heard of in Florida, and it has been downhill ever since.

    Now it's with Bank of America of course, as they buy up everybody eventually.

    The only good thing in all that is that there is probably no way BofA could find my original note if I wanted to be a prick and contest the terms of my note.
