    It would be funny if it weren't so sad. It reads like an SNL skit.

    Nothin says warm and fuzzy like the banking industry...

    Yes, too many poor people dying, that's our problem. We need more rich people to die.

    I hope this guy got the name of that fuckwit from BOA.

    And while the nitwit said it, am sure that it's exactly what he/she has been taught to say from above.

    Oh boy, to be a fly on the wall in that guy's house during that phone call. If he could, he probably would have jumped through the phone.

    Oh I agree. But also see them getting ripped by supervisors for not trying to get the money...

    I would have paid it -- with another of her credit cards.

    If you read the story, it quotes a former collections rep from BofA saying that this is standard operating procedure.

    Here's a question. To what extent are people responsible for their loved one's bills? I understand that places like BOA could go after any estate, but what about husbands and wives? This is something i've always wondered about.
