Nancy, Your daughter would have been correct had she said this- POLITICIANS ARE IDIOTS!

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

Most politicians don't have a CLUE as to what's REALLY happening in the United States of America, in my opinion. If they DID KNOW, then we WOULDN'T have had a 'MELTDOWN' in our economy as we had last year, and we WOULDN'T be experiencing all the JOB LOSSES that we are. A politician's job is to 'PROTECT THE PEOPLE' of this country, correct? But we now know that many politicians are busier PROTECTING the corporations, and the executives at these corporations who 'prey-upon' the innocent people in America, right?


If the 'Laws' were ENFORCED to prevent the FRAUD, CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, & MANIPULATION that exist in this country, then things wouldn't have gotten to the level they were in the past few decades, correct? It just PROVES how the corporations in the USA are the ones who are REALLY in control of America, wouldn't you NOW agree?



WELCOME TO AMERICA- A LAND OF IDIOTS WORKING IN EVERY SECTOR!



P.S. I wonder WHY none of our politicians, economists at the FED, or even any of the 'big-shots' who run the Fortune 500 corporations in this country didn't see the COLLAPSE OF THE U.S. ECONOMY back in 2007? A few professors saw it coming, right? Dr. Doom is a professor of economics, isn't he? I'm not certain that this is the correct spelling of his name, but I believe it's something like this- Professor Roubini. You can probably 'Google'- PROFESSOR ROUBINI, or even 'Google' this- DR DOOM, and it'll come up. You can also see how someone who isn't a professor saw the COLLAPSE of the U.S. economy back in 2007. Simply 'Google' the following-



RIP OFF REPORT GM CREDIT CARD SERVICES, and go to Betty's Rip Off Report about her interest rate going from 10.99% to 32.44%, and then to the '1st Update' to her Rip Off Report that was posted on 9-3-2007. Here's the quote-



QUOTE: "The Collapse of the U.S. economy is in its infancy. Get all of your money out of the stock market and cash in your retirement NOW!" - 9/3/2007



And a Harvard Business Professor saw it coming too! 'Google' this- RIP OFF REPORT FUEL FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL MPG CAPS, and go to the 2001 Toyota Tacoma Ripoff Report, and then to the 'Update' entitled- "BLAME IT ON A LAWYER" and read it. It's right there, isn't it?



Have a nice week.

tellers are idiots

AUTHOR: Nancy - (U.S.A.)

My daughter works for a major bank in the central cash vault (NOT Bof A) and I asked her HOW a teller could give someone a counterfeit bill. She said  "the tellers are idiots"  They ALL know what to look for but most of them do nto do it.  She  they get money a lot from the branches that is fake (it got by the tellers). So that is yhour answer.

How is this a case of discrimination?

AUTHOR: I am the law - (U.S.A.)

First, off, you got burned, but it wasn't the bank's fault. They're right, you should've checked that money before you walked out the door.

And how is this a case of discrimination? The only case for that you could make would be the bank discriminating against people who are negligent with their money, use poor grammar, and can't spell.

This happened to me too!

AUTHOR: bluezee - (USA)

I also received a counterfeit $100 bill from Bank of America.  Mine was from the Grand Rapids, MI (East Beltline/28th St) branch on 9/14/09.  I received 43 100 bills in my transaction.  I used half of it to pay bills and deposited the remaining 22 bills at my bank (Huntington) on 9/28/09.  I received a call the next day that one of the bills was counterfeit.  I provided all of the Bank of America information to my bank.

I am outraged!  If you can't get legitimate money from a bank, then where can you get it from?

*Just think, if the Chinese government ever decides to pull its $800 BILLION dollar investment out of the United States, it could take months, or even YEARS to determine if the money they receive from the USA is real or phony, correct? It would take eight billion $100 bills to equal $800 BILLION, right? Imagine going through eight billion $100 bills, one at a time, to make sure that they're not 'washed' $5 bills posing as $100 bills!!!

WOW!

here is the difference

AUTHOR: Exemployee18 - (U.S.A.)

This actually happened to one of my customers at my branch which is not BOA.  I had a customer that received a counterfeit bill from one of my tellers.  She went to a Wal Mart to use it and the Wal Mart called the cops on her.  She came back to tell me of the incident.  I felt extremely sorry for her since this was not her fault.  She has never worked in the banking industry and has no idea what to look for on counterfeit bills.  I explained I would called my Loss Prevention supervisor which I did.  Then I got my regional approval to report the loss to a GL account and give her 100 bucks back she lost.  Banks have a way of catching these.  Most banks have electronic counters that have a button called..."SD"  which stands for suspicious document.  When a bill goes through it as counterfeit it should catch it especially if it was washed.  Now if you have a teller that knows what they are doing they will catch it.  If you receive a counterfeit bill take it into a branch and let them know about it.  Most of the time they will try and help you out.  Some of the big banks dont care but hopefully this info will help out.

Gosbest, Send a copy of your Rip Off Report to Ben Bernanke at the FED because I saw....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

on TV that the Federal Reserve has pallets of $100 bills, and each pallet represents $64 MILLION. Mr. Bernanke might want to do an audit to make certain that these $100 bills are not 'washed' $5 bills posing as $100 bills, right? Just think, 5% of $64 MILLION would only be $3.2 MILLION, right? That would set the FED back a bit, huh? 

You can probably get the Federal Reserve's address by 'Googling' this- FEDERAL RESERVE ADDRESS, and it should come up. You might want to alert Mr. Obama too. His address is-

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, DC 20500

*I wonder if all the $100 bills that the CEO's have in their vaults at their homes in West Palm Beach Florida are real $100 bills? Just think if their MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of dollars in cash that they have stashed at their mansions turns out to be worth only 5% of what they think it's worth? My goodness, that would be TERRIBLE, huh?

Another possibility...

AUTHOR: Robert - (USA)

If this had happened to me, I would have called the police while I was at the credit union.  Did the teller at the credit union SHOW YOU how the bill was fake?  Was there a watermark and security strip?

Is it possible the counterfeit was given at BOA?  Yes it's possible.

Another possibility is that the $100 was NOT counterfeit (dishonest teller at credit union) or that the TELLER at the credit union KNEW he/she had a bad bill and needed to "unload" it before the head teller found out (dishonest teller.)  The next customer who shows up with a $100 bill "get's" the counterfeit.  This is equally possible.

Unfortunately, not all tellers are on the up and up.

I'm sorry you lost $100, but I don't see any way for you to be able to prove that you obtained the fake at BOA. (I don't doubt your story.)

In the future you need to INSPECT your money to prevent any future loss.  You need to hold the bills up to the light to verify that there is a true watermark and security strip-the security strip states the value of the bill.  Also, the paper must have small red and white filaments running through it.

Why am I not surprised it was BofA?

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (U.S.A.)

Guess you haven't read other reports here. Go to the search in the upper right corner of this page and type in Bank of America..grab a coffee and read for a while.

You will find among other things..that the bank is always right..YOU are always guilty until proven innocent..which is really fun because the bank is the judge, jury and executioner. They handle and investigate and "sort out" any issue or dispute as they see fit..and in their good time.

If you make a mistake it is all your fault and unforgivable. If the bank makes a mistake or is careless..well....we just bail them out.

Now hopefully the police will look into this. As the bank commuted a federal crime if they passed counterfeit money to you..well what do you think would have happened to you had you got caught depositing counterfeit money?

Now BofA is ruthless and unconscionable..so they may find all the rest of the counterfeit money and hide or destroy it..leaving you holding the bag and out the funds..would not put it past them..but you did the right thing going to the police.

Keep calling the news stations and newspapers and online news etc and post on forums..let them know what these crooks did..they do enough but this is taking it to a new level.
