If this isnâ€™t a indication of whatâ€™s to come, then we donâ€™t know what is. This is what itâ€™s going to look like when you try to get to the bank in the middle of a panic.
From what we can gather, according to eye witness testimony, St. Louis PD has barricaded the Bank of America building and is refusing customer access to deposits.
They wouldnâ€™t let me in so I had to push. Somebody stopped me because they pointed at the SWAT team right there.
I donâ€™t believe they have a legal right to keep me from getting my money. Thatâ€™s why I pushed them. Forget about the SWAT team.
Iâ€™ve got a legal right to go into that bank and take my money out.
They would not let me get past that barricade, where those three guys are. I talked to the liutenant of the St. Louis Police Department â€“ and he said they [customers?] donâ€™t have a legal right â€“ but he was going to try to work out something, a symbolic gesture where eight people could pull out their money, I being one of them.
He came back later and said they [BofA] will not go along with that. You will have to withdraw your money online.
Most of the people here [want to withdraw their money] . But they wouldnâ€™t let nobody through. That was our intention [to withdraw our money].
In fact they told us we could do it. All of a sudden, somebody changed the rules. When I first got here they said â€œweâ€™re going to let you go in and withdraw your money.â€ And then when I got ready to go in and withdraw my moneyâ€¦ â€œyou canâ€™t get in.â€ They quit talking. They just blocked it.
Note that the Bank of America web site has been intermittently in and out of service for the last 72 hours, making it difficult, if not impossible for customers to access their accounts.
Additionally, Bank of Americaâ€™s stock price has collapsed significantly over the last several weeks, leading many to wonder if the bank may be declaring insolvency/bankruptcy soon.
Time The Oracle from Omaha took another bath. The stink from BAC is getting worse.
