HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Bank of America is facing backlash for suspending a Florida man's account because he couldn't provide a specific document to prove his legal status. The man recently got married to an American woman and has been studying in the U.S. for seven years.
The bank froze his account after they questioned him about his legal citizenship status. When he didn't have the document they wanted, the bank suspended his account.
The Miami Herald published an article about several other customers with similar stories. Bank of America maintains that their employees ask customers about their citizenship to comply with laws and regulations.
Financial adviser Ed Gardner discusses the matter with Isiah Carey.
