Bank Of America’s official statement:
While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking with clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry.
We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nation’s defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year.
George W. Smith
Commercial Bank Executive
Ugh… so they are denying they told McMillan to take a hike? Fishy. I highly doubt McMillan would make something like that up considering the legal ramifications of such accusations.
If you’re not familiar with McMillan, make sure to check them out. They have a lot of nice products.
When I was looking for an accountant and a lawyer a couple years ago, I had a few similar experiences. I found it surprising, because I always figured as a “professional” it was standard to keep your personal beliefs separate from your company’s business. *shrug* I guess the economy is so good people can turn down business. I maybe should have made a bigger deal out if it than I did, but I really don’t like wasting my time on people or companies that have twisted agendas and/or beliefs.
Thoughts? Anyone else have a similar experience?
