Bank of America

Im just wondering what everyone else thinks. but the other day i got a call from Bank of America for my wife saying she had information on "benefits" on her credit card. the thing that threw me off was that they asked for her with her maiden name (none of our accounts has her maiden name on it) and the other thing that made me think was that they asked me if i was a joint card holder or if i had access to the accounts.

What does everyone think?

Re: Bank of America

it sounds to me like somone had your wife's account information and was looking for a convenient way to gain access to her funds. whether or not it was Bank of America? i don't know. i would call them back and inquire about the call - who made it, why it was made, etc., then go from there.
