This announcement has generated concern among regular customers of these branches, who must now look for different banking locations.

They will need to find different Bank of American branches or turn to online banking.

Bank of America recently settled a lawsuit in Florida.

This was related to sending out after-hours debt-relief communications to customers in that state.

The bank violated Florida’s Consumer Collection Practices Act.

Affected customers could receive compensation of up to $500 per contact since April 22, 2020.

According to The Sun, they must have submitted a form before January 26 of this year.

The Bank of America closures are an effort to adapt to changes in the industry and other issues.
