After Reading Slog, Anonymous Threatens Bank of America

Posted by on Thu, Jan 16, 2014 at 2:08 PM

In response to Ansel's Slog post about a Bank of America employee bragging to members of the Washington State Patrol that the bank has a team of 20 employees who troll social media all day looking for "intel on Anarchists or Occupy Protesters ," Anonymous has issued a nonspecific (and bombastic) threat:

It blows our minds how anyone could still bank with you, or why they would want to...

You're a vampire, Bank of America. You're a parasite, bloated with the blood that you suck from the financial life of your customers. Shall we mention your colluding with Visa and MasterCard to keep ATM fees outrageously high? Or all the times that you illegally and wrongfully foreclosed on the homes of families that banked with you, leaving those families homeless, their lives ruined? Or the minuscule amount of taxes that you're supposed to pay, but don't? What about the six former Bank of America employees who came forward and revealed your despicable practices, including rewarding employees who managed to place ten or more mortgage accounts into foreclosure in one month with a $500.00 bonus?

We suppose a financial institution with your track record of being evil could justify spying on a group of average citizens who were attempting to exercise their right to air grievances through public assembly, but that doesn't make it right, and it doesn't make what we do any of your business, either.

So if you're still with Bank of America and somebody digitally blows it up and ruins your financial life, you'll know who to blame.

Ansel Herz.

More likely, Anonymous will add extra zeroes to people's accounts and BA customers will be ten or one hundred or one thousand times richer than they had thought.

Credit, you mean.

BofA deserves the blame for everything associated with them. Hmmm.... maybe I should move that old 401K somewhere else...

Why would you sign this Ansel Herz? The only person to blame would be the person still banking with BOA.

Believe your missing the point Sugartits, not surprising since you are obviously the moron here. See, that Bank of America hasn't ripped off each and every one of their customers is irrelevant given that they have definitely ripped off millions of other people, to the point of destroying people's lives for very little profit. They are an evil company willing to let people die if it means even a marginal profit. Meanwhile other organizations, mostly credit unions, are not evil, and provide the same services at the same rates as a bank. So, given that you support, i.e. give your money to, an evil corporations, when it isn't necessary to do so, you are an asshole. I wish it wasn't the case that you are too stupid to see I'm right, but I'm sure you are too stupid to see I'm right, so good luck, and please, please don't breed.
