That's funny. When I went to refinance my home two weeks ago, it is almost the same amount BofA wanted in terms of a point and fees. No problem, just add that to my principle. No way! Wells Fargo posted 3 billion dollars in profit due to a whole bunch of people refinancing. Who will be investigating WFC? The black man got Lucky, probably be using the funds to pay off his BofA credit card which just recently, increased the interest rates equal to that of a loan shark.

Your comment makes no sense. There is no justification for robbing the place.

local's comment makes sense - it's obviously a joke about how "robbed" some of BofA's customers feel, rather than a serious attempt to "justify" anything.

lighten up.
