    Bank of America on Lou Dobbs

    Lou Dobbs covered a program on BOA that they give Credit Cards to illegal aliens and this is not true. If you go on line and try to apply for a credit card with BOA they require US citizenship, dual citizenship, or green card holder. Maybe Lou Dobbs meant to say visa debit / atm / check cards instead of credit cards ? An illegal alien has technically no job and who would be stupid enough to give away credit cards ? It's a misunderstanding.

    You think it's a credit card, but debit cards also have visa / mastercard logos and the 16 digit number on them. With a credit card you're allowed to have an over draft, not with debit cards. Why would BOA give credit cards to illegal aliens ? Makes no sense at all. You can't check their back ground and financial history. A credit card is like giving a loan, no bank is stupid enough to give loans or credit cards to illegal aliens.

    Sorry, but the story is true. See for yourself. This is from USA Today.

    Perhaps what the misunderstanding is B of A is doing it only in the LA County area for now.

    mies,

    Nobody is falling for those lies BofA is putting out. They are lying their butts off trying to save customers because they have lost at least tens of millions of dollars over this.

    Check out the news section at www.bankofamericaboycott.com and you will see that it is indeed a fact that BofA is giving credit cards to illegal aliens.

    They are trying to say that giving illegal aliens credit cards is not their intent, but upon easy inspection, anyone can see that is BS.

    Lou Dobbs is a real hero and he may be wrong once in a blue moon, but rarely and he is certainly not wrong about Bank of America.

    Re: Bank of America on Lou Dobbs

    Careful,

    Online applications require a social security number for the automated process to take place. You will find that same statement on all the online applications. As you mention, s also for BOFA.

    But an online application (where the computer usually needs a social security #) is not the same as an application filled in face-to-case. Although with ITINs they could make the "illegal" applications online as well.

    Also, the "credit cards for ITIN holders" is only implemented in an area of Los Angeles so far, as it is in testing. It has not yet been moved to be a nationwide program.

    That's putting it mildly in my opinion.

    It's credit cards for illegal aliens we have a problem with. There are people here legally who have ITIN numbers.

    Yes, this is a pilot program in LA. Hopefully they've had so much negative response they'll think twice before going nation wide.

    Re: IS TRUE

    I certainly hope they reconsider as well.

    Right now I'd assume they are awaiting to see what happens to the Bills being attempted to make it illegal to issue these credit cards to begin with, instead of "just" ethically wrong.
