SATURDAY, JULY 20, 11:00 am, Blow the whistle on Bank of America at the Oak Park branch, 3810 Broadway (near 5th Ave.). Whistles and signs will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Mr. Monopoly will make an appearance, as may BofA CEO Bryan Moynihan.
Background: Recently, BOA employee whistleblowers said that the bank regularly rewarded employees with gift cards and cash bonuses for sending struggling homeowners into foreclosure. Employees were told to lie to homeowners, “lose” documents, falsify information—whatever it took to boost up foreclosure rates. Why? Because banks make lots of money in fees from “servicing” foreclosed homes, and sometimes lose money on modifications.
Join us on July 20 as WE blow the whistle on BOA, and demand justice for BOA homeowners who lost their homes, criminal prosecution of BOA officials, and a moratorium on foreclosures. (Carpool to Anaheim will leave after this protest.)
