Sorry about the CLD.

 

 

While I have had no problems with BoA others have. I can not give a reason as to why they pick and choose who they CLD, but maybe you can help others by giving more information of your situation that brought about their decision.

 

Have you been carrying a higher balance?

 

Was the card almost maxed out before you made the $1000 payment?

 

Do you have other cards that you carry higher balances on?

 

Do you know what your UTIL % is on your CR's?

 

Have your CR scores changed?

 

Has a new negative information been reported to your CR's?

 

 

 

Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!

BofA doing a CLD going into a holiday, who would of thought.  You best option now would be to PIF the BofA card as soon as you can and never use it again, if possible.  Based on your credit and income,  I would look at a local CU.  They usually don't play these type of games.  Let the BofA card add to your AAoA and if you need to use it, always PIF.  Don't let them make 1 cent of interest off of you but don't close the card either.

 

LOL if you are thinking of  doing something medieval with a BofA CSR, you'll have to wait in line behind me,  that goes for anyone else in this forum as well.

Re: BANK OF AMERICA

Wow, sorry to hear that.  Just curious, how high was your balance and how long were you carrying it?  I have BOA issues too but they won't even give me a card.

Another thing. This post was edited by someone other than the original poster. The original post said "[edited] bank of america"... I come on here for other peoples experiences and opinions. I really dislike the editing and censorship. I really like this board but the editing is to much. I can understand editing spam, and VILE comments but a "[edited]"? Come on.

They left me alone through the peak of the recession but just a few weeks ago chopped 5k to 1k and 4k to 500 in response to me reminding them that they had a homework assignment (by pressing the luv button.)  Even Amex has been playing nice-- CLI, approval for another card and have qualified for major lines 10k+ at fav CUs and other majors instantly.  Low uti, no negs at all, no app sprees, only a few inq most will fall off by next year, etc. 

 

Since the boa CLD have been stringing them along by making purchases the same as usual without missing a beat, more to show them what they will be missing out on when they take a break in the SD indefinitely (of course not that they care.)  

 

Will need to do some serious culling in the years to follow and literally cannot think of one acct that I don't have good use for right now, so they actually did me a favor, no joke--it gives me two accts to summarily close.  I have only been giving them the benefit of SERIOUS doubt all along and well, they reared their ugly heads, LOL

 

My strategy is to wait several months and then hopefully restore limits and when the restored limits report, close both cc... this way at least  won't have 2 low limit accounts reporting closed.
