Bank of America - B of A Participated in Criminal Fraud against Me
Credit Card Services - Complaint
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- Bank of America refused to reverse charges from Community Legal Center, a company that defrauded me. Basically, Bank of America is an accessory to the criminal fraud described below. In billing disputes, B of A sides with the merchant 99.9% of the time, even when they have a stack of consumer complaints against the merchant. They make it very, very easy for dishonest merchants to rip people off. I would not recommend B of A to my worst enemy.
This legal center is a total scam. They advertise a one hour consultation for $50 every Saturday on a drop in basis. Then they ask for your credit card to charge the $50 fee to and then start charging your card for additional charges BEFORE they even give you your consultation and without your authorization for these phony charges. If you ask your credit card company to reverse them, they will produce documents with your forged signature. If you show them ANY documents during the consultation, they will claim they copied them at a cost of $23.75 per page. The consultation is supposed to include a brief review of legal documents related to your legal issues. However, if the attorney asks even a single question on any legal document you are showing them, this becomes another fee over and above the consultation at a rate of $95 per one minute question. All their quotes and legal agreements are on a huge database and it takes them all of two minutes to pull up these pre-prepared forms and put your name into the quote or the agreement but this very brief service becomes a $200 fee. And if you, the customer, complete any legal forms on your own WITHOUT asking the center's employees ANY questions, the time YOU spend filling out the forms becomes billable time ,. Gee, I bet tax accountant wish they all could charge clients for preparing their own tax returns!!! These folks are charging $275 an hour for having the customer fill out their own forms with no assistance.
