Arthur Livingston, of Prosperity, S.C., may feel prosperous and alive, but his credit report looks a little dead:
Bank of America has been reporting him as deceased to the three major credit agencies since May 2009, he said. His credit report states “file not scored because subject is deceased.”
The mistaken code was finally removed on Feb. 22, four and a half months after Livingston, 39, learned about the error and complained to Bank of America.
The regional manager of a chemical company, Livingston discovered the dilemma when he tried to obtain a loan from a mortgage company in October. The problem may have begun when Livingston, who said he has been a Bank of America customer for 14 years, sold his home in May 2009.
Livingston says he’s lost several thousand dollars because of the screw up, and that Bank of America “doesn’t really care.”
This is just inexcusable! Bank of America should know more than anyone that you NEVER fawk with someone’s money and credit! SMH
