Will “bank of America” have a nice scam as will?

They tell people they can get coverage for their account it, but it be double the plan as will bill them for the same thing.

be careful what you signup for you may get double the plan safe guards’ as will double the bill for them scam plans.

It’s a real nightmare to get it stop as will.
File a report in to stop them and get them fine for it as will by the feds.

if any of you like to be watchful of spam/scam e-mail there is a really sweet program/software

link: http://www.agnitum.com/products/spam-terrier/index.php

its free all they ask is you to fill a forum out and you get a e-mail with the key code to enable it.

basic you tell the software what is spam and it will automatic deleted it or send it to a folder.

anyways i like it.

cheif you make no sense .. no bank will ever charge you to "cover" your money. that's what the FDIC is, which federally insures all your money in that account up to $100,000 dollars, and banks are required by law to be FDIC secure...

that don't cover your account getting stolen information online, were you may get charge for things or other doing a credit check! were you get to know who checking it.

the scam is they tell you to signup to two coverage plans they are the same thing! there is no need for a 2nd coverage were the first one cover all.

they sold me two type of coverage were i only needed one that cover all.

you can buy service plans to cover your account. ask any bank they tell you there is security plans you can pay for.

FDIC only cover if the bank get rob! it were money is safe.
don't cover online charges or wire transfer that if information was stolen. they have coverage plans to cover that! cost money to safe guard the end user.

the only thing burn me is Bank of America charge me for two type of coverage plans to safe guard my account. double the charges for the same plan coverage security

Good on ya scam busters!
