So sorry | 1
Hi Barbara! I’m sorry to be writing you again so soon but I am seriously excited about our new relationship! One thing I wanted to talk to you about is the crushing news that Bank of America is no longer the biggest! OMG! I hope this doesn’t affect your ability to continue raping the American people! We stand ready to serve your corporate greed! All the best!
I forgot! | 0
Hi Barbara! It’s me again! Sorry but I forgot to tell you that I sincerely wish for you even more financial success than any normal person could ever possibly imagine. In the words of a great American poet, I want YOU to be the girl with the most cake! I really, really do. All the best! Because you deserve it!
Mr. Sturzenegger, I am simply writing you to commend your efforts to back your aptly named “Bank of America” brand with actual American banking fundamentals and ethics! You are the Bank of America. The greedy, stealing, too cheap to pay income taxes, and too eager to take money from others but incredibly slow to give others money back, whether it be your ridiculous fees or when you just got caught ripping someone off. Well, this will end soon unfortunately. So, when your corporate scams and greed do come to a halt, will you change your name to “Bank of the 99%” when you have to use actual law and regulation to do business in an ethical manner? I hope so. You’ve been so good at describing the type of establishment you run with just a name, I hope it continues when your manner of business changes! Regards, Kim Crouch 61832

Don't raise fees | 0
I really hope that you don’t raise fees on your customers. It’s just not fair to them.
At some point this month there will be 7 billion people on earth, 3 billion of whom live on $2.50/day or less. Anyone who is not completely heartless would agree that wealthy people are criminals against humanity. The world needs a giant potlatch in which the wealthy are relieved of their criminal wealth so that the wealth can be distributed to relieve suffering. The world can no longer afford rich people! William Davis
What happened to "by the people and for the people"? The banks have too much power in Corporate America. The people have spoken that this is not the way our democracy should be run. If Occupy Wall Street isn't enough of a message, what is? Alexandra Phillips 01230
Dear Barbara, I wanted to take a moment out of your very busy day (I hope I’m not keeping you from further pilfering the pockets of the downtrodden!) to say: thank you, thank you, thank you for all you have done to ensure the obscene profits on Bank of America at the expense of the American people. Thank you for doing your part to bring misery to millions of hard working people. Thank you for knowingly slicing and dicing worthless investments and reselling them in a Ponzi scheme that Ponzi himself would find amazing. Thank you for holding out your hand so greedily when the whole thing fell apart and taking the hard earned money of working Americans, and then evicting them from their homes after you brought the financial system to its knees.Thank you for squeezing every dime out of transaction fees and credit card interest rates and late payment penalties. My question of the day is: how much money do you need? Can you every really have enough? If you were able to extract every last penny from every one of the 300 million people in whose country you operate, would that be enough? Your greed is disgusting.
Joe - save your BOA stamps overhead. I terminated my BOA card when Ken raised my interest rate on a pay-on-time customer from9.9 to 14.9 per cent. That was more than two years ago. I am still getting “0” balance monthly reports, and solicitations from BOA to transfer other debt into my “account.” Waste mail. I am long gone. Jerry M Landay, Bristol, RI
Mr. Sanger, My wife and I have had a mortgage with Wells Fargo since the day we realized our dream and became homeowners on February 15, 2007. We bought an older home that was in need of some TLC because, as a young couple, it was what we could afford, there was a hope that the money we invested would improve our future, and it gave us the opportunity to make it OUR HOME. We went as far to get married at the local courthouse so we could use the money we had saved for a wedding to invest in our home. Since then, with a lot of help from our family, we have invested everything into this home to make it ours. We have sacrificed vacations, nights out to dinner, new clothes, and even having a 2nd child to have the money available to continue to invest in our home. Now we are staring at a mortgage that far supersedes the value of our home without even considering the large of amount of our money we have invested in the home. It has now reached a point where we would like to sell our home to realize all of the hard work and effort we have put in out over the years to have the option to relocate so my wife could put herself in line for a very significant promotion that will continue to solidify our family’s future. But this does not seem to be an option for us because as your representatives have told me “we are in the midst of the worst housing crisis in history,” which I am sure you are aware of. I have reached out to your company to possibly modify our loan to help us build a cushion to begin the process of selling our house and repaying the balance we would owe. I have even looked into a “short sale” (which is far from ideal due to the time & money we have invested) so we could take advantage of the great opportunity in front of us. Yet I have been told that we don’t qualify for any of these options because we have been responsible and have NEVER ONCE missed or been late with a mortgage payment. I was even told we don’t qualify to have our payment reduced because we have a $1,000 surplus between our monthly income & expenses. Really? $1,000? How far does that get a family in a month? How is this fair? How is it fair that people who worked hard and have done everything the right and responsible way have no option? How is it that we are being punished for bad choices made by people in your position? Where is the bailout for the people who have invested everything they have to build a better life for their family and were, for lack of a better word, screwed by people with no other stake than to make more money for themselves? Sincerely, Ted Thompson Frederick,MD (301) 792-5441
You have been blessed beyond belief. You should surely want to do your FAIR share to help those that are less fortunate than you. Andreia Shotwell Wheat Ridge, CO 80033-6335

You have taken my money and made my retirement years a wreck. pat schumacher brownsville, TX 78526
I have never sipped champagne that costs more that 20 dollars a bottle. I don’t care about that, and would feel wasteful doing so. More importantly I have been nursing an nerve injury in my arm that occurred almost 11 mos ago. I haven’t been able to get the tests required to diagnose the actual problem as they are in excess of thousands of dollars. This is my life, totally different from yours , but it’s not because I haven’t tried. And I’m not the only one.
i know that JP morgan recently donated 6.4 million dollars to the NYPD to help quell the protests in nyc. i also know that the police have been instructed to use brutish tactics. i want you to know that i am aware, and i am combating your big-brother style takeover of the free world and i am doing so non-violently with compassion and empathy. one day you will face your decisions. you will deal with your selfishness in all its destructive power, and it will all be your own doing. i do not envy you, for you have many nights of restless sleep, contemplating the excruciating and debilitating pain you have brought upon peoples all over the world. i am sorry and i am sad that you are the way you are. i hope one day you can find room to love yourself. i hope one day you can hold a philosophy in which you help others instead of yourself. it is a hard habit to break.

Just wanted to let you know it is a shame that so many older people that have worked all their lives are losing their homes. Losing self respect, and dignity. I believe it is fair to make a decent living…but when does the out and out greed stop. Is it fair for most people to work, and work hard (sometimes at 2 or 3 jobs) and still not make ends meet, while some people just can’t count all their money? Money made off the backs of the people.
Hi Edith, My name is Kim Crouch and I’m hoping I’ve got the right address. I am writing you to inquire on how I start the application process to get my bailout from Goldman Sachs. You see, I’ve wrecked my credit and only make $10.60 an hour, so I was hoping that you could help me out, seeing as you screwed up royally and got rewarded for it, I figured I’d try to do the same thing! Think you could help me? You see, my health insurance deductible just doubled and I certainly could use the extra money to pay for it, as well as my other bills that keep piling up. So, I hope to hear from you on the status of my application. I hope I screwed up enough to get rewarded! Sincerely, Kim Crouch
As a former employee of a local United Way for almost 20 years I knew of the wonderful charitable work you did as CEO of UW of America. I have to ask how you can now, in good conscience, sit on the board of a company that has not only defrauded the government but has foreclosed on homes without the proper documentation and continues to lobby for continued deregulation of banks and financial institutions so they can continue to engage in the risky behavior that has brought such financial ruin to our country? Was your tenure at UW simply for the money or did you ever actually care about helping the less fortunate? If you have any morality at all you will resign your position with Wells Fargo and refuse to associate with this corrupt corporation.
Dear David. I have been a wells fargo customer for a long time. In fact, you have a mortgage on my parents house, where I live. My step dad has been out of a job and needs help, he is in bad health. My mom slaves the day away at her job (which just lost federal funding, if you can guess where she works), and she doesn’t make enough money for us, including my little brother. Now it’s time to talk about myself. I am a 25 year old man with schyzoaffective disorder. I have been too disabled to work since 2007, just recently I started taking classes at a community college, boy I really hope I make it this time and I hope that you can find it in your heart to consider families like mine, who are sometimes below the common middle class earner, but also above begging and borrowing. This mortgage is killing us man, please let all the families who have been unable to pay their bills go. That is all, and if you actually did read this letter, than you have my sincerest gratitude sir, thank you.
Hi Edith, I just wanted to ask that you reconsider a few of the choices you’ve made in your life that affect so many people. I’m sure you’re proud of the “success” you’ve achieved, no doubt pushed by parents and others who seem to believe that the only meaning we can find in our lives comes through material wealth. Right now I’m sitting at my laboratory desk, listening to Mumford and Sons, and watching the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in a while. There are so many wonders in this planet and the horrible things done to millions by your company in particular have robbed parents of their hope for their children, sometimes causing suicides and divorces. You’ve stolen happy childhoods. You took from me the opportunity to own a home with the girl I loved. She’s gone now and I’ll never see her again because of what you helped to do. We need you to stop, Edith. You’re killing us all and deep down I think you know it’s true. I know it seems scary to repudiate your ill-gotten wealth- all your friends are rich and you’ve forced yourself to believe in your own good intentions for years. I assure you Edith, that as soon as you free yourself from the system that is so skillfully engineered to enslave us all, you’ll enjoy your family more fully, and you’ll be able to enjoy a sunset in the way those of us with clear consciences are able. I’ll never be as happy as I once was, but if I can help you escape from this murderous system it might just keep me from jumping out my laboratory window. Please consider saving your own life, and mine.

Bank of America Corp. (BAC), hit by a credit downgrade last month, has moved derivatives from its Merrill Lynch unit to a subsidiary flush with insured deposits, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation. The Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. disagree over the transfers, which are being requested by counterparties, said the people, who asked to remain anonymous because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. The Fed has signaled that it favors moving the derivatives to give relief to the bank holding company, while the FDIC, which would have to pay off depositors in the event of a bank failure, is objecting, said the people. The bank doesn’t believe regulatory approval is needed, said people with knowledge of its position.
