This "Johnny come lately" to the Rancho Park / West Los Angeles Branch of Bank of America came with a 25 year reputation with the bank and a well known history of employee terminations from underneath him.

A un named veteran of several years with the bank commenced a bank transaction. This transaction, because of its type, had to be verified in both amount and account number by this Manager, John Gaines. This transaction had the wrong amount and account number on it by a simple clerical error. If made by the Employee, it's no problem. You just do it over again.

HOWEVER, THIS mistake went on and ended up getting approved by John. If JOHN makes a mistake by OK'ing something that he was supposed to check and it is later determined to be an error, NOW this is a BIG problem for which HE would get blamed hevily. This John is KNOWN for continually saying ya ya ya ya yes yes yes fastly during conversations meaning that he rushes through things and is basically impatient. When asked for help by an employee, he recently said "That's not my job". That's the team spirit. John!

It's obvious that John did not check this transaction because even the account number was wrong and he is supposed to verify EVERYTHING on this certain type of transaction and the wrong amount was sent with the wrong account number and it went through after he approved it.

Well later on this transaction ended up surfacing due to the wrong information. John blamed the first employee when it was he discovered that he f***ed up and approved the transaction and ok'ing it off without checking things like he is supposed to. The bank customer complained that the wrong amount was sent and denied putting their initials on it. It was later discovered by watching the video tapes that the employee did nothing wrong. The Security department of the bank came in and interrogated the employee for hours, trying to make this employee admit to something they did'nt do. They said (AND I QUOTE) "This can't be John's fault. He has been with the bank 25 years and he wouldn't do something like this" Well, HE DID!

For this, John deserves to be listed on evey google search and searchible place on the internet her for being a lying, kiniving, backstabbing b*****d that will let an employee under him FRY for something that HE KNOWS HE DID.

A few days later, John called the security department saying he feels threatened. It's called a guilty conscience, John.

There is all kinds of justice in this world. People who get fired for someone f***ing them over and backstabbing them are usually looking for it.

There is people in the cemetary who have done a lot less than this b*****d.

If I got someone fired because I lied about something that I f** up, I would be scared too.

I highly reccomend that eveyone who reads this, close their account with Bank of America and mention the name JOHN GAINES at the Rancho Park branch. I did!

Pants Down in Elysian Park

AUTHOR: Jim Webb Bail Bonds - (U.S.A.)

It seems to be that the LAPD should have better things to do than to cruise Elysian (Named after the first openly gay Armenian, Sarkis Elysian) Park and illegally arrest men who just happen to stop by to take a tinkle in the bushes. I have seen John in the park many times and I dont think blowing a guy in a park at night should be against the law. Lighten up L.A.!

John Gaines, Branch Manager at the Bank of America in Rancho Park,(West Los Angeles) California has pulled another dishonest move. When will Bank of America say ENOUGH? This time, John made an employee think that they were going to be promoted to a higher position. He told the employee to first "prove themseves" by peforming management job tasks at the "Teller" pay rate. This employee worked hard for 3 months and proved that they could do the management tasks. When it came time to pay up and promote the person, John said, oh nevermind, we decided not to promote you. I was against this from the very start and told this person not to work for free. Then this.

This is John Gaines home phone number: 310-649-6544 and his cell number is 310-365-4175 and his home address is 7906 Dunbarton in Los Angeles 90045. All that information is per, free public information and has been verified as correct.

Also, John is appearantly a drunk too.
The Los Angeles Superior Court shows john to be convicted of being in a vehicle while intoxicated. Two other related charges were filed, however were droped as a result from a deal made with John to plead guilty to this lessor charge. Another charge showed him to be exposing himself in public. God only knows what he actually DID to get THAT charge.

John has a wife and an adopted asain kid because of his inability to get his wife pregnant, eretile disfunctions or inability to "get it up" for anyone over the age of 16.

You don't know who you're f**king with John. Millions of people see and because of your dishonesty, it's on. Each time you screw over another employee, I am going to take it a step further with the information on this site. f**k with an employee again and next time it will be your family members names and all of your social security numbers. You need to be identified for the fraud you are. Next time you call the security department because "you feel threatened" think about stopping to screw over everyone that works for you. NOBODY where you work likes you. NOBODY. EVERYBODY hates you and so many people hate you that you can't even figure out what direction this is coming from.

You god d**n rat.

I'm John's EX

AUTHOR: Justin Igger - (U.S.A.)

I used to date John Gaines. He dumped me for another man and I hate him for that. I don't know if he stole any money from the bank, but he stole my heart. And another thing, Jim Webb Bail Bonds makes Dog the Bounty Hunter look like Joe Friday from Dragnet. He overcharges, says he is going to come to see you in jail and then doesn't show up, I think he bribes the Lynwood School Guards to arrest his clients so he can make money writing the bond. I'm now happily in a committed relationship with a Maywood Police Sergeant. He is getting me a job with the Maywood Police as soon as I get discharged from parole.

Not so fast buddy

AUTHOR: Jim Webb Bail Bonds - (U.S.A.)

I take exception to the previous statement that my company Jim Webb Bail Bonds refused to post bond for John Gaines boy friend Rufus. John has been a long time ans loyal customer of mine for many years and all of his prior "male companions" have appeared in court when bailed out except for Rufus. I John and I have told Rufus many times to stay away from the schools and parks of Lynwood. He won't learn his lesson. John has tried to help him with his crack problem the same way I helped John with his crack problem. John Gaines is a decent man who just happens to enjoy sexual relations with black ex-cons. Is that so wrong?!?!?!?

There is more to this story

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

I was in the bank when this incident happened. It wasn't John Gaines fault! When this transaction came to him, he was busy on the phone dealing with a very stressful personal situation. His male lover, Rufus Tyrone Jackson III, had been arrested again by the Lynwood School Police for a parole violation. Since Rufus was facing 25 to life and Jim Webb Bail Bonds wouldn't post his bail, John had to find a way to sneak some quick cash out of the vault. So lighten up buddy. Your report shows you to be the hateful racist anti-gay a*****e that you are!
