    Credit for Illegal Immigrants

    A Conversation between a Customer and Bank of America


    Bank: This is the Bank of America, can I help you?

    Customer: Yes, I want to cancel my account. I don't
    want to do business with you any longer.

    Bank: Why?

    Customer: You're giving credit to illegal immigrants,
    and I don't think it's right. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

    Bank: Well, Mr. Customer, we don't want to see you do
    that, but we can't stop you. I'll help you close the account. What is your account number?

    Customer: (gives account number)

    Bank: For security purposes and for your protection,
    can you please give me the last four digits of your social security
    number?

    Customer: No.

    Bank: Mr. Customer, I need to verify your information,
    but in order to help you, I'll need verification of who you are.

    Customer: Why should I give you my social security
    number? The reason I'm closing my account is that your bank is issuing credit cards to illegal immigrants who don't have social security numbers. You are targeting that audience and want their business. Let's say I'm an illegal immigrant and you've given me a credit card. I have a question about it and call for assistance. You wouldn't be asking me for a Social Security number, would you?

    Bank: No sir, I wouldn't.

    Customer: Why not?

    Bank: Because you would have pressed '2' to speak in
    Spanish. We don't ask for that information when calling in on the Spanish line.


    While the conversation may not be accurate, the story is essentially true. Check out the link to Snopes for further information.

    Ya gotta be kidding!! It's like everyone says the US shouldn't have illegals but then everybody does everything they can to accomodate them. I even read somewhere that a government contractor was hiring illegals. Do you know what the chances of a non-Mexican getting a credit card here? Ever hear of the snowball in hell? How are you gonna stop illegals when everybody's making too much money off them?

    I agree. We (the USA) should NOT be catering to these illegals whatsoever. As a country, we are majorly at fault with this problem. We allow it, and we cater to them. I am sick of it.

    And we wonder why the financial picture in the U.S. is see-sawing over sub-prime lending?

    Lenders see a quick short-term buck by the pumped interest rate, but the long-term picture can only be a write-off when you run the risk of your debtor being deported, losing his job due to government raid, etc.

    Yet another slap in the face for folks trying to do things the legal way. Citizens, guard your FICO score or we'll not lend you a cent; Illegals, here's your plastic, just pay us usury for it.

    These guys are rapists.

    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
