Clark Howard Attacks Bank of America For Jailing Customer, Costs Millions

A Bank of America customer trying to verify a check sent to him by a scammer was cast in irons for his trouble. Now Clark Howard, consumer activist radio host, has started a campaign encouraging everyone to withdraw their money from BofA in protest. Bank officials claim they’re just doing their duty but Howard and his viewers aren’t buying it. According to Howard’s site, so far they’ve cost BofA over $18 million in withdrawals.

Mob justice at its finest! Love it.
