Update on Opening a new Bank account, Frustration with bureaucracy

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all the helpful suggestions, you were right, I walked accross the road and the Bank of America opened a checking account in my name with a very nice customer service attitude and no hesitation whatsoever.

Now all I have to do is compose and send a letter to the CEO of Bank Atlantic, outlining the service (or lack of) and attitude from the manager of the branch, who hasnt even bothered to call me as promised, with the result of the enquiry to their Legal Department.

I was really ticked off and your replies made me feel a lot more supported, so thanks for that

RE: I am still pending status so took along all my documentation (SSN, passport, Florida ID, Marriage certificate, etc etc.) and a check from the US Treasury and tried to open a bank account.

They got bogged down in the expired visa and refused to open an account, anyone else had this experience?

DMV here in CA told my wife to not show her expired visa to any one else as they would not know what to do with it. They simply said to use her new forms of ID EAD Ca ID and Now Her CA Drivers License.

I can say I have been dealing with Bank of America for Years and openining an account in her name was made quite easy by them. We did not even have her SSN# yet but they opened the account and we brought her # later.

RE: I am still pending status so took along all my documentation (SSN, passport, Florida ID, Marriage certificate, etc etc.) and a check from the US Treasury and tried to open a bank account.
