An internal email was sent out to all Bank of America Corp Field Services regarding the Dec. 6th National Day of Action to Occupy Our Homes. See the email below.
The email reads that this event “could impact our industry." Well, yes, BAC, that is our hope. Thanks for noticing!
The email further includes specific warnings to BAC “field services” agents:
1. Your safety is our primary concern, so do not engage with the protesters;
2. While in neighborhoods, please take notice of vacant BAC Field Services managed homes and ensure they are secured;
3. Remind all parties of the bank’s media policy and report any media incidents to 1-800-796-8448 or email at email@example.com.
Aside from the superficial implications, what is more important is that the big banks are showing precisely what the weakest links in the system are, and what makes them the most nervous. It is not protesters living in tents in a major metropolitan city; it is protesters disrupting the lifeblood of the broken banking system - the home selling/repossession pathway.
