Stank of America (Bank of America nickname)

Bank of America is one of the Big Four of America’s banks (along with Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo). Critics of Bank of America have given it the unflattering nickname of “Stank of America” since at least 2005.

Bank of America has other unflattering nicknames, including “Bank of Amerika/Amerikkka” (cited in print since 1970), “Bunch of Assholes” (cited in print since at least 2000), “Skank of America,” “Bank of Assholes” (both cited in print since at least 2003). “Bank of Failmerica” (cited in print since 2009) and “Bankster of America” (cited in print since 2009).  The South Africa-related nickname, “Bank of Apartheid,” has been used since at least 1978, but is dated today.


Wikipedia: Bank of America
Bank of America Corporation (NYSE: BAC, TYO: 8648) is an American global financial services company, the largest bank holding company in the United States, by assets, and the second largest bank by market capitalization. Bank of America serves clients in more than 150 countries and has a relationship with 99% of the U.S. Fortune 500 companies and 83% of the Fortune Global 500. The company is a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and a component of both the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

As of 2010, Bank of America is the 5th largest company in the United States by total revenue, as well as the second largest non-oil company in the U.S. (after Wal-Mart). In 2010, Forbes listed Bank of America as the 3rd “best” large company in the world.

The bank’s 2008 acquisition of Merrill Lynch made Bank of America the world’s largest wealth manager and a major player in the investment banking industry.

The company holds 12.2% of all U.S. deposits, as of August 2009, and is one of the Big Four banks of the United States, along with Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo—its main competitors.

Urban Dictionary
Stank of America
A financial institution which purports itself to be a giant in the banking industry that still has the time to help the little guy achieve his American dream, when in reality they are just another corporate sloth sucking the life out of every human who dares enter it’s lair.

Some institutions run your credit when you join regardless if checking and savings. I couldn’t open a lot of accounts for people with 540 scores or below when I was working at Stank of America....errr… Bank of America.
