If you’ve ever spent any time dealing with the automated system of a large company—the maddening hold music, the screwed-up routing of calls, the abject frustration of feeling so powerless to get anything done, you’d almost be glad to get transferred sex line for foot fetishists, whether you were one or not.
But Ben Popkin of the Consumerist reports that the holder of an account with Bank of America Military Bank wasn’t so pleased to have just such a thing happen after finding suspicious purchases on his BOA debit card (including some from an Alabama brick and mortar company—the cardholder lives in Texas). After encountering a series of problems in getting through to the right person, the customer was transferred to a line on which he alleges that “a breathy, aroused female voice enticing us participate on a phone sex line specializing in something called “Feet Sex.” When the customer’s wife reported this to the next rep he said, “I don't doubt it, ma'am.”
Maybe some wise-ass figured that, after getting the runaround, the customers would need a faux-foot massage? We’re amused, but we can understand why the caller wasn’t.
