Bank of America

I have been a loyal Bank of America (BoA) customer for as long as I can remember. My parents got me an account there when I was like 10 and I thought I was so awesome. They have been good to me too. Send me new cards promptly, fairly good customer service and their website is easy to read.

But as of late, BoA’s actions have been fairly sketchy. First I read that some BoA accounts had a security breach (from a car blog, none-the-less) and made no mention of it via e-mail or on their website. Their later tweeted that everything was ok. This makes me feel like they don’t these security breaches seriously when in fact our bank accounts are probably one the most important things to us and a security breach could be very damaging to people. An e-mail to customers or something would have been nice, even to those unaffected.

Now it is reported that BoA is planning on starting a sort-of smear campaign against Wikileaks and its supporters (journalists and such). Whether you support Wikileaks or not, this kind of action is not right and should not be tolerated. We shouldn’t have major corporations trying block journalists from doing their job. It is because of journalists that we know so much not only about our government but the world around us. And while Wikileaks is controversial, a journalist doing his or her job is not.

I know BoA has come out and said they never saw the proposed campaign or had any interest in it. But it still bothers me to know that BoA somehow got tied to it. I hope BoA figures their stuff out, I really don’t want to deal with switching banks. Wikileaks information on BoA may be the last straw though.
