Economic power means not letting bad people take advantage of you just because you're female. I live in the Los Angeles, California region of the U.S. In May and June of this year, 2021, someone got ahold of my bank debit card number from Bank of America and made over $3,700 worth of unauthorized purchases while forging my signature. I have never lent my debit card to anyone, and I've never told anyone my bank card number, the PIN, or the three-digit security code. Even though I filed a police report, which I faxed to Bank of America, this bank mailed me a rejection letter, stating the bank doesn't believe me when I stated, in my numerous claims, that I never made or authorized these excessive purchases. When I called the fraud department of Bank of America, the man who took my call was horribly condescending, telling me, \"It's so typical of you women to be hysterical and irrational.\" I was outraged. I feel so helpless, because I'm a 62 year-old woman living on a fixed income, and Bank of America representatives don't care about my plight. *NOTE: This is NOT a solicitation of funds; I'm NOT asking for money. I'm simply giving a heads up to all women that you can't allow criminals and insensitive bankers to take advantage of you, just because you're a woman. I'm at my wits' end, but I'm going to continue to fight.
