BOA must have come up with a new wrinkle to make a buck off of folks.

Here's a tip for you. If you can't afford the home, don't get suckered in by a bank that calls themselves Bank of America, but then removes the American flag so it will not offend illegals !!!!!

An old story from 2009 involving one mgr at one branch in SC, not a corporate decision. Never said anything specific about illegals.

their letter "A" (in BOA) could stand for many names other than America.

BOA doesn't want good customers, only those they can make money from. After years of being a mtge customer, they sold my loan to the worst mtge. company they could. No money to be made from me on missed or late payments.

It's the good customers that ultimately make them the money and keep them afloat. Prime mortgages are rarely farmed out because they want to keep those good customers. These stories are a dime a dozen over the years, and for the millions of people that claimed they took their money out of the monster megas, they are still around and doing quite well.

Most struggling homeowners do not make any attempt at contacting their mortgage companies until it is too late. At the start of the recession B of A contacted me, several times, even though I didn't have one of these bad loans. The constant message was they were reaching out to everyone, but the people in dire straights mostly ignored the calls and immediate help. I am glad that the banks are still making an effort and doing their part. They cannot take all of the blame for the state of our economy.

Seriously, if you don't think that BOA or any other bank for that matter, has an ulterior motive that involves lining their pockets, you need your head examined.

Considering their recent checkered past, isn't that like having a wolf give sheep a course on cooking meat?
