Consumer Complaints: I hate Bank of America!

This story isn't about me. I don't hate Bank of America yet. And I like the accounts I have with them and want to keep them. It's just that I feel I have a duty to inform the world about Avi Oslick, who does hate Bank of America.

It's a simple story. One told by many... of a bank transaction gone wrong and a bank who won't fix their mistake. According to a news story, about an hour after Avi issued a check for $2,500, he contacted Bank of America (which happens to be across the street from his house) to have the check canceled. He says the bank told him it was canceled, but later allowed the check to clear and told him tough luck. Avi says this isn't the first transaction the bank has messed up for him, and he's sick of their errors costing him money.

When the bank wouldn't work with Avi, he put a big sign on his house that says "I hate Bank of America" and started a website, ihateboa.com. He says that he's just standing up for himself and that other consumers need to do the same. One consumer did just that last year, starting a site called lowes-sucks.com. Lowes tried to use legal tactics to get the owner to take that site down, and eventually the two sides came to a settlement which resulted in the site going away and the creator going mute on the issue. (I do hope he got some money for his troubles!)
