Bank Of America Branch Refuses To Deposit Wedding Gift Checks Because Bride Didn't Change Her Name

Wednesday, January 4, 2012 - 4:29 PMBank of America - Details
A reporter for the Times Union describes in this article how a Bank of America branch refused to let his new bride deposit wedding gift checks in their joint checking account because she didn't change her last name. His name is Peter Lorizzo, and the checks were made out to Mr. and Mrs. Peter Lorizzo. That didn't match the joint account names.

They were able to get around the problem by just going to another Bank of America branch.
