Tell Bank of America: No $5 Debit Card Fees
Bank of America, the largest bank in the U.S., will begin charging customers $5 each month to use their debit card to make purchases. This is an outrageous fee. What's worse is that Bank of America's decision to charge customers for debit card use will likely spread to other banks. Wells Fargo and Chase bank have already announced plans to test a $3 monthly fee to their customers. Not everyone will pay the fee (at least not at first). If you have $20,000 in combined balances at BofA or have a mortgage with the bank, they'll waive the $5 monthly fee. That means this change will hit low income customers the worst - including people like me, a recent college graduate working two part-time jobs. When the recession first hit, we gave Bank of America billions of dollars in bailout money. Our reward is higher fees for the same services. At some point, we've got to say enough is enough. Please join me in telling Bank of America you're fed up. Sign my petition calling on BofA CEO Brian Moynihan to swiftly reverse the bank's decision to charge us $5 a month to use our own debit cards.

Bank Of America: Offer a disabled vet and his family an opportunity to stay in their home
My husband, William, was diagnosed with end stage kidney disease in 2010. He lost his job and health care coverage shortly afterwards. Facing increased health costs and lower income, we fell behind in our mortgage payments. My husband never missed a single payment until his prescriptions, doctor appointments, hospitalizations, lab tests, etc overtook everything. Now that we are in a position to continue to make regular mortgage payments, Bank of America has told us that they won't work with us unless we can come up with $15,000 at once. The bank is now planning to sell the home we live in with three of our six sons this coming May. My husband served with the United States Air Force from 1979 through 1990. His Military Occupational Specialty was combat control and he saw action in El Salvador as a young recruit. William was severely injured in a parachuting accident in the late 80s and received an honorable discharge from the US Air Force when it became clear he would not be able to jump again. My husband sacrificed a lot for this country and our family has been through a lot. We're ready to continue our mortgage payments, but we need Bank of America to work with us to help us stay in our home. Please join me in asking Bank of America to stop the foreclosure on our house and offer a disabled vet the opportunity to save his home.
Bank of America: Don't Let a Veteran's Family Lose Their Home
How many homeless Veterans do you see on the streets? Does Bank of America really want to be responsible for another?My husband (a two tour Iraq War Veteran) and I have been trying for 3 years to modify our mortgage with Bank of America (Merrill Lynch), only to be given the run around. Now, we may lose our home. The home my father designed and built with his own two hands that should be in our family for generations to come.Since 2008 my family has been dealing with the nightmare of trying to get a modification with Bank of America for our home in Lakewood, CA. We've been told the bank has lost our paperwork more than once, we've been sent denial letters, and we are now on the 3rd attempt to modify our loan.Due to the unethical practices of Banks and Credit Card companies, and furloughs, my credit has been completely destroyed and I am now in a financial spiral, one that makes it impossible to qualify for a refinance.Bank of America has ignored our modification requests. They have continually lost and then requested replacement paperwork, impounded tax and insurance payments. We must have a modification before the loan adjusts from interest only to hold on to our home.We want to make our mortgage payments - and we can - if Bank of America works with us. Please sign this petition to help my family keep our home.
Banks, stop financing assault weapons manufacturers!
If you’re a customer of Chase, Wells Fargo, or any of more than a dozen other banks, your deposits could be helping finance the production of assault weapons – the weapons used in Parkland and many other mass shootings. This report from Think Progress shares the details. Sixteen banks are financing Remington Outdoor, Smith & Wesson, Sturm Ruger, Sig Sauer, and Vista Outdoor, the makers of the assault weapons used in Parkland, at Sandy Hook Elementary School, at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, at a church in Texas, and in countless other tragedies. It’s time to tell these banks that it’s no longer socially acceptable to be financing these merchants of death. Banks love to tell us how they are community-minded, but helping fuel gun violence is the opposite of community-minded! Please sign this petition to tell banks to stop financing assault weapons manufacturers. And in addition to signing and sharing this petition, please look at our Google document which lists all of the banks and contact information for them, and consider also reaching out to them directly to show your displeasure. Bank of America has announced that it will stop financing assault weapons manufactuers. These other banks need to follow their lead.
Tell the Big Banks to Stop Funding Climate Change
$115 billion. That’s how much the world’s biggest banks pumped into “extreme fossil fuel” projects in 2017 alone.* Here’s the kicker: those are your dollars directly fueling climate change. Big Banks finance fossil fuel companies through loans and investments using the money we trust them to hold—projects like the Dakota Pipeline (DAPL) or offshore/Arctic drilling couldn’t happen without it. The list of top offenders includes Chase, Citi, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and Wells Fargo. Any of those names sound familiar? We can and must do better! Let’s commit to break that destructive cycle by voting with our feet—we’ll move our money to green banking and investing options. Today we’re asking you to take the #MovetoGreen pledge: I commit to start moving my money into fossil fuel-free banking and investments that are sustainable—so my money will help, not hurt, the planet and people. Imagine: together, we will get 1 million Americans to commit to move to green banking and investment by Earth Day 2019—ourselves, our friends, our families—and we will make a real difference in the fight against climate change this year. There is a growing movement toward moving money away from fossil fuels, including steps taken by cities like Kansas City and New York City, organizations like the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Funds, and colleges across the country. We can’t wait any longer. Since 2001, we’ve seen 17 of the 18 hottest years on record. Doing nothing is no longer an option. Now it’s time for all of us to step up and join the green revolution in banking and investing. Sign the pledge and share it widely, because tomorrow’s planet depends on what we do today. We do have the power to change things. Together we can finally take on the fossil fuel industry, and win. *"Banking on Climate Change: Fossil Fuel Finance Report Card," March 28, 2018
Stop BofA's Foreclosure on Vera Johnson's Home & Business
I’m a single mother of two kids and a proud Seattle business owner. When our family fell on hard times, I asked the bank for a loan modification that, under law, I am qualified to receive. Now, Bank of America is trying to kick my family out of our home and foreclose on my business. But with your support, I’m fighting back. I have been trying for 17 months to get a loan modification with Bank of America, providing endless copies of paperwork and being told repeatedly to resubmit lost or misplaced paperwork. A Seattle reporter verified the bank’s carelessness in dealing with my case, in a story here.Bank of America even went so far as to “block” my account to prevent any payments to make sure my account went into late payment so as to “help jump start the loan modification action,” as they put it! Is that legal?As a small business owner and well-respected member of the community, I am ready to make my story public. This is my home as well as my job. I am a divorced, single mother of two. I was recently awarded the house and property, as this is where I work. I own and operate the home-based business Perennial Nursery and educational center in a very culturally diverse community. This business hosts many classes for our community, including planting, permaculture, sustainability and composting. We host schools and camps for classes and educational tours. We also work with the South Seattle Community College by proving internships and training programs. I regularly work with many schools in the area, local non-profits, and South Seattle Community College and strive to bring my community together by collaborating with other business owners in the White Center/Seattle area. It's time for homeowners and business owners to stand up together. We deserve a fair, reasonable process for pursuing loan modification.
Stop The Dakota Access Pipeline By Pressuring The Investing Banks to Pull Their Money Out!
We ask that all banks and institutions that are currently providing the money to Energy Transfer Partners to make the Dakota Access Pipeline happen, IMMEDIATELY withdraw and terminate their investment and funds from this project. Complete list of banks found at www.DefundDAPL.org We ask that these banks re-invest these funds into renewable and sustainable energy research, development, and installations that do not impact the environment in destructive ways. We the people are now taking action to close our accounts, mortgages, car loans, business loans, etc, with your banks and campaigning to get others to join in this movement. At Standing Rock, we have seen those that are gathering peaceably and prayerfully being met with unprecedented violence. Unarmed people including elders and children are being maced, beaten, shot, arrested, strip-searched and left unclothed in kennels meant for animals. To us that is elder and child abuse. As spiritual people we cannot sit and watch as those who claim to be upholding the law, repeatedly violate their own man-made laws. These contemptible actions must stop along with this Nations’ addiction to oil. The path to life and a healthy future requires this addiction to end. You can make a difference if you as an individual/business have accounts with a bank that is invested in this Dakota Access Pipeline project, we ask that you close your accounts, loans, mortgages, and find a more local credit union or bank that is investing directly back into the community you are in. This pipeline will contaminate the drinking water for millions of people as well as already desecrating the native indigenous peoples' sacred burial grounds, other sacred sites and cultural ways. This project and construction breaks the treaties that the United States made with indigenous peoples in 1868. We can make a major impact in this movement by pulling our money out of banks, sending emails and letters to the owners of these banks, organizing peaceful demonstrations at these banks to make locals aware, take ads out in your local newspaper, write a press release and distribute to your local media, get on the radio, get on TV, make yard signs and install throughout your area, print flyers and distribute at large events - parked cars are very receptive to flyers : ), the possibilities are endless.... By signing this petition, you are committing to take action to Defund DAPL. You are committing to close your accounts if you have them with any of these banks and to spread the word to whatever extreme you feel most comfortable.

In my country many children with SMA1 due to sanctions of USA can't get access to treatmen
Hi, I am living in Iran. It is several years that my country is facing with the sanctions that USA is approved for my country. During this time nation of Iran unfairly was the main victim of USA. They first requested to close Nuclear energy and centrifuges of Iran with this excuse that Iran is a threat for west and then other various issues. Anyway our nation with their honor faced with this hard game of USA and didn't feel hopeless for one second from help of God but as you know during 2018 currency of Iran value decreased 4 to 5 times which was really terrible it means the bread that u was buying with 1 euro ,you must pay 4 or 5 euro for it and the salaries was fixed as really employers were unable to pay multiple times salary. Anyway the subject which I want talk about it is not politic or economic or any other thing. I just want say most of our drugs which are about traetmtre of special diseases like Cancer,etc were importing from western countries like Germany but now people really don't have abbililty to buy them special about some rare genetic diseases even government doesn't give budget because policy is caring majority instead of minority and it is understandable as economic condition is not so much good that they think to all. But I want say why for dirty politics USA is playing with life of our children ???is it fare that the drugs which a patient must buy 5 times in months ,he buy just once and continue his life with pain. You know there are some skin diseases that causes injuries in whole of body and if you don't put suitable panseman it will convert to infection and price of its sticks is so high .do you know during last week we lost a nice girl for it? Are you familiar with SMA1 diseas and do you know it's treatment cost???in Iran many children have it and only treatment way is applying for foreign hospitals and getting its cure. In 2018 many children died for it and for poverty which caused their parents be unable to purchase its treatment. How a new couples can supply hundred thousand euro !!!how they can say to their baby that please tolerate please breath with equipments and get ready for death as we don't have money it is very hard.and I was knew one of them from near and was witness of his death. I was so sad until now because I did every work to collect money but it was impossible to collect it as even people didn't have such ability to afford such huge money. I just request please do some work for patients.please help them as how you can. Remember Charlie the same baby from UK remember how much his parents were sad from his death while they did everything for him. We have many Charlie s too.please help them
To consolidate my loans so that I can refinance my home.
My name is Desi Shelby and I am a disabled Veteran. I live off of my VA benefits and my Social Security Disability benefits. I worked for more than twenty three years of my life. I did not stop working until my doctors said I was doing harm to my body by working. I need some help and support from everyone that is willing to tell Bank of America and M&T bank to do their job and not pass the cost on to me. Several years ago, I refinanced my home with Country Wide mortgages. During the time that my paper work for refinancing was in process, Bank of America purchased Country Wide. When Bank of America purchased my loan from Country Wide, they failed to file the title properly with Dutchess County NY. They also failed to consolidate the first and second mortgage. After years of paying my mortgage on time, Bank of America decided to sell my loan to M&T Bank. Me and my husband decided to refinance into a lower rate. We can't because Bank of America and M&T will not consolidate the first and second mortgages and file the proper paper work with Dutchess County NY. M&T has asked me to pay to have the loans consolidated. They want me to pay between $1,200 and $1,500 to do this. They have said that none of this is our fault and that it is something that happens to lots of people. I feel that sense it is not our fault, we should not have to pay to get this matter resolved. There are thousands of home owners in the same position and the banks are taking money from them in order to fix a problem that has nothing to do with the home owner. I need people to sign this petition so that the banks will know that a few thousand dollars mean a lot to working class people. I need people to make it clear that we, the American people, bailed them out once and we should not have to pay to fix any mistakes they made while they were messing up the entire mortgage industry and causing people to lose their life savings. Enough is enough! Please sign this petition and help me as well as others that are being asked to pay fees to clear up the banks error. Thank you for your support. Desi A. Shelby
