Bank of America Is Light On Sympathy

BAC can hardly afford any more losses. In the era of widespread identity theft and fraud, the bank needs to take a zero tolerance policy towards nefarious individuals trying to run afoul of the law. So to those like Steve Valdez, Bank of America has made its stance clear, they will not be duped.

A Florida man born without arms says a Tampa bank would not let him cash a check because he couldn't provide a thumbprint.
Steve Valdez didn't have an account at a Bank of America location in downtown Tampa, where he tried to cash a check from his wife last week. However, Valdez has prosthetic arms and is unable to provide a thumbprint. He says he presented two forms of identification but was still denied.
