Bank of America Credit card department,
All my credit card accounts are set up on automatic bill pay that offer the option to automatically pay the minimum amount due ... except Bank of America. So, not having information on how to accomplish a minimum payment automatically, I checked the minimum listed and added $5.00 to it. Well, yesterday I received an email saying my payment was past due and was charged $16.00 for a late fee. Upon calling them today, I learned that they had upped their minimum payment without notifying me so my payment was not accepted and I was charged. This is the second time that Bank of America has charged me an unfair fee. The first was with their changing the due date by 5 days without notifying me and claiming it was because there was a different number of days in the billing cycle. I did find out that there is a way to set a minimum payment but you have to go to a totally separate page that I was never told about to do it nor were there instructions on the page to set up auto pay.
