Submission + - Clark Howard vs. Bank of America

unjedai writes: "A San Francisco man, Matthew Shinnick, was arrested and jailed when he tried to cash a check at a Bank of America branch after receiving it from someone who had seen his ad for bicycles on Craig's List... Clark Howard found out about this story and... After speaking with BofA, Clark Howard ... asked his listeners to close their Bank of America accounts because of what he feels is unfair treatment of Matthew... A "BofA Money Loss Meter" on his site reports that listeners have allegedly withdrawn several million dollars and closed their accounts." -Wikipedia summary. The San Fransisco Chronicle article is amazing. The "BofA Money Loss Meter" is up to $50 million.
