Bank Of America / claims department

1 United States Review updated:

The so-called "Claims Department" at Bank of America is a complete joke. After I filed a checkcard purchase dispute, they sent me a letter with a copy of the transaction from the credit card terminal stating that the charge was legitimate (which it was not). So, I did the investigative work on my own-wasting several hours on the phone and doing follow up. Their investigators did not make 1 phone call into the company to see about the charge-not 1. This was a complete pain and yet again, another example of Bank of America's lack of professionalism and customer service. After all that work, they still charged me overdraft fees and closed the claim without waiting for the proof of receipt/refund/admit of error from the company who charged my card in error. Don't even bother contacting these customer service people-they don't make note and or extend any customer service.

    Thats unusual because I never had a problem with the Bank of America claims department crediting back unauthorized charges or merchants that I had cancelled their services and they refunded my purchases or unauthorized charges back to to my bank debit card imediately. I have had my checking and savings account at Bank of America for three years and have had no problems whatsoever. I guess it all depends on which Bank of America employee your dealing with and for me I have had no problems with any of the employees. If you are unhappy then I suggest you just switch banks instead of staying with a bank that your not happy with. Their are thousands of other banks out there who are glad to have your business. +

    I had an unauthorized charge post to my account today. I found out about it from an email that Bank of America sent me regarding irregular activity on my debit card. It was great that they alerted me immediately (BUT...). The email advised me to contact the Fraud Department, which I did. I spoke with an employee that cancelled my card and issued a new one. She then transferred me to the claims department to get the funds posted back to my account...and that's when it all went downhill. I was disconnected from the Claims Department phone system after entering in all the information requested. I had to go back through the Fraud Dept. phone queue since I didn't have a direct number to the Claims Dept. The woman that answered put me back in the faulty Claims Dept. phone system, and yet again I was disconnected after entering in all of my information. I called the Fraud Dept back and told them not to out me back in the Claims phone system - that I wanted a LIVE PERSON . Once again, I was disconnected - this time after being on hold for 5 minutes. I called the Fraud Dept back AGAIN and was adamant that I wanted a LIVE PERSON and that if I was disconnected, I expected an immediate call back. Finally, I was put through to a live person. It has taken almost an hour to go through all of the systems, enter in the information requested (account number, SSN, etc.) and speak to explain my situation to a number of employees. Very frustrating. Even now I am unsure if my claim was resolved because the Claims Agent told me that I needed to listen to a 30 second recording after she confirmed the fraudulent transaction. She made it seem that I would need to take some kind of action after the recording - but instead, I was disconnected after the recording ended. I just hope that this gets resolved. If it doesn't, I will most certainly switch banks. This is not any kind of sufficient customer service.

    My claim was not about unauthorized charge. I deposited several checks in ATM (I did not do it inside of branch, because- I am sure it is not surprising to anybody- I would have to stand in line for half an hour or so). At the end of transaction ATM made weird noises and spit out receipt showing $0 deposit and claim number. I asked to speak to branch manager, who told me to move out of ATM line and call number on ticket. So I did. I was told that claim will take up to 10 business days after which I will receive credit of whatever amount I say was deposited (if BoA does not reach conclusion). Ten days later my account showed "temporary credit" of amount I deposited. So I called claim department. And I found out that it is actually 45 days. After 10 days I am just getting temporary credit...Nice...So I have this money in my account that really isn't mine and answer as to why it takes that long? "Your claim is not the only one". Makes me feel so much better. I think it is time to FIRE Bank of America.

    Greetings to all who read my comment :)
    It's my very first time writing comment. I don't know who to call say thank you. In april (four months ago) I inroll yoga teacher training and I paid $4900 up front. Next day (for family reason) I decided to not attend the class and I called yoga studio to cancel but they didn't want to give refund. I begged the trainer but she just ignored me. So i called to bank of america and put claim. They give me credit for $4900 and they said they will try to solve in 45 days if not 90 days and it may extend it again. I called to claim Center several times but automat machine was talking to me. During that time lots and lots of things happened to me and didn't have time to take care of this problem but just recieved mail yesterday :) bank of America won for me and I have my money back. Basically I talked with them once maybe 15 mins and made several unsuccessful call but still have my money back :) im gonna call claim Center and just wanna thank them also wanted to share it :) thats all. Good day people.

    I have a horrible experience with BOA customer services and the Manager named Zack at the Claim/Dispute department. The luck of understanding, care of customer`s needs is beyond my imagination!. BOA it used to be such an amazing Bank with superb customer`s skills. I have been on the phone for about over 3 hours being transferred from one place to another, repeated stuff thousand times, call being dropped, the customer reps they are not listening or literally don't care what is the purpose of the call. They have their agenda and seems to know the best and they are protecting their money not customer`s for sure. The second time I have called because on 7/21/17 my card was suspended due to suspicious activates, I was not aware of it and used to pay for a parking meter. I got later on that day citation ticket. I called bank today to explained it and take proper action since they suspended the account w/o proper notification. The rep stated that they called me but the number was wrong and they said that it is my fault that they got my number wrong...is this is a joke ??? Maybe start hiring American employees who understand English not the ridicules Indian speaking people who cant understand English!!! I will never be or recommend anyone that hideous bank ever.

    Bank of America, where is my money? You said you were going to look in to it, you found all the evidence leading to my accounts, money missing, but you haven't refund any of my money that you call yourself refunding me and drafted protections have drained my accounts. You have taken my mortgage, car note, life savings, my utility bill money. Small Business Yahoo.com and Bank of America both have taken my money. You pretend to refund my money back. It's in black and white, evidence proofs that my money haven't been deposited back into my account from Small Business Yahoo.com and Bank of America. Proof is my accounts are empty. My Virginia Employment Commission has been direct deposited in to my account. Where is it? I need my money back before November and December, and credit card interest rate reduced back down to where it use to be $30 to $50 a month.
