Being Sued by FIA, lied to by Bank Of America, FIA states I Am being SUED for BREACH of CONTRACT , they keep saying its in reguards to a CREDIT CARD, I NEVER had a CREDIT CARD, I had a LINE OF CREDIT
I had in 2010 been contacted by Bank of America, offering me a Line of Credit, for 45,000.00 to pay off my debits and have one payment, and was also charged a 3,000.00 fee which after talking to several Bank employees that they don't charge a fee when asked to have this looked in to was passed off to several Departments with no resolution the one and only document I received shows the 45,000.00 and then the total of 48,000.00. No interest, payment amount shown, also a Privacy paragraph which had stated my Banking would be kept confidential, so Then WHY was my SON called at his work regarding my Banking issues, also would receive calls starting at 7am till 9pm, one day I received 22 calls, that to me is Harassment!
I never ever received a statement from the Bank reguarding this account, I was making 880.00 a month payments, my understanding with a Line of a Credit as long as the interest is payed that account is in good standing, in August of 2010 I received a call from the BAnk of America offering me a settlement on the account I payed what was asked not noticing at the time it was endorsed by FIA, and the bank stamped by both the Bank and FIA, I was lied to! And they are suing me for this as Breach of Contract, HOW can that be legal when I did what was requested, I had not heard anything from the Bank but continued to be Harassed by FIA, which I thought was Bogus as I payed the settlement offered. So I did nothing as I at that time did not know the 2 were connected, what a scam, I went to mediation as I was required to do later finding out that the Mediator was associated with Bank of America, and the Lawyer for FIA when arrived had been sitting in the room together, which I sure they had discussed the situation, (conflict of interest) I had brought my Son with me for support, they were not going to let him in if he was going to be a witness? WHY?
Because all of my dealing with hot he Bank were by phone and never received any paper documents except the initial one which clearly states LINE of CREDIT, not a CREDIT CARD like they kept referring to, so because I had no paper statements except the ones from FIA, which I find odd after 2 years they do this I thought when I payed out the settlement offered by BANK of AMERICA I was done with this mess! FIA lied in mediation stating that they bought the account in 2012 which I why was the check endorsed by them in in 2010, and why did I get a letter from them in 2011 stating they had the account and then another stating they bought it in 2012, the mediator, harassed, yelled and scolded me, my lawyer could not make the appointment so we were going to do it by using my phone on speaker when the phone rang I was sternly told by the mediator even when I told her it was my Lawyer to hang up and shut my phone off! She then continued to referred to my situation again a CREDIT CARD which I kept telling her that it was a LINE of CREDIT not a CREDIT CARD!!!! she continued to scold me regarding my responsibilities even though I told her that I had contacted the bank several times, and why I wasn't getting statement which their only proof was 7 statements, which when I called the Bank stayed they had no record of my account and could not give me any info, are you kidding me a account that you're involved with suing and you have know info!
REALLY! So when I asked her why she only had 7 where were the rest she got even more defensive, well if you could only get seven I asked where the rest were! She couldn't answer which made her even more upset and I got the well why don't you have any I again explained that I had requested them and a complete statement of the account and was told by the Bank they had no information on the account and could not give me anything, so what are you suppose to do, then she asked about the settlement agreement again, I had no paper documents, it was done by phone which I said to her all calls are recorded so why can't it be obtained, so that was not a option according to her, She settled the case by giving to FIA despite my asking how can I be sued for something that I did as asked and never heard from the Bank again, but was continuously harassed by FIA. Again I kept saying that I did not have a CREDIT CARD so how was this legit a Line of Credit is by no means the same as a Credit Card, this whole situation was BOGUS, and she actually granted in favor of of FIA!
I have been separated since 2008 my Ex Husband had nothing to do with this but they put him down on the court papers as Jane or John Doe, OH MY GOD, I'm surprised my son wasn't put on the papers as they harassed him continuous I should turn around and sue the Bank for invasion of Privacy as they have a whole paragraph on the original contract how my financial information! The mediator didn't care how I was manipulated by theses two Financial Institutions is I would think illegal, for lying, misrepresentation, and I would say purging themselves, another issue I have is the Banks tell you to do your Banking on Line but yet if you do you have no paper Documents that I supposedly needed, I suggested pulling it up on Line she would not give me that option, anything I tried to do to defend myself was not an option, she then proceed to scold me that the mail that you get from theses bogus companies offering you a credit to pay off a debit should be answered, are you kidding me!
I'm still upset that she would not allow me to speak to my Lawyer, which tells me that that Mediation was a waste of my time as they had decided the case no matter what I had to say, the biggest one is that I didn't have a paper document of the settlement even though I had the persons name and number that I spoke with at the Bank if al calls are recorded that would have settled it then, but she refused me that chance also, I had every name and number of who I spoke with, and the mess the Bank has done with my mortgage I asked for a paper statement of a years payments I took it to a accountant he was shocked he said it was such a mess it would take weeks to figure it out, I had over payed 5,000.00 in one year I asked the bank where it went they couldn't explain but yet I kept getting letters I was delinquent and kept threatening me with foreclosure, also my checking account I was being charged a overdraft fee and then charged overdraft fees on the overdraft fee, to an amount of 780.00 I went to the bank as there was money in the account, they would not do anything, and basically walked way left me standing there with no resolution, PEOPLE BEWARE of these two Institutions they are connected and are not there to help you but to mess you up so bad that you can't figure out what they've done, if ANYONE can offer suggestions on what to do to get these Companies and make them responsible for all the money they've taken, and the time and money I have lost Please HELP!
