A good friend of mine makes monthly donations to the ACJ Foundation. The transfer is made automatically from his checking account to the ACJF's checking account. No problem, right?
Well, the other day he decided to change the amount of the monthly donation. Below is his description of what transpired.
I was at the bank today attempting to change my monthly donation amount to ACJF and was told I needed to provide them with the account number. I reminded them that they HAVE the number and use it every month so....Hearing this, they told me that I needed to provide them with the account number. I think Bank of America is new to banking because they could not come up with a work-around other than I needed to provide them with the account number. I decided to provide them with the account number. Any chance I could get that from y'all?
I told him I would need some kind of proof from him
before I would give him my account number.
I'm sure BofA thinks it has a good reason for
what they did. Beats me!
