The Bank of America Data Leak Starts, Thanks To Anonymous

Bank_of_AmericaIn November 2010 Julian Assange created much consternation among banking circles by revealing that WikiLeaks had material that could take down a major bank, which was later revealed to be Bank of America. However, despite or maybe because of Assange’s arrest in Britain, the leak was not forthcoming … until now, it seems.

The group Anonymous has announced an initial BofA release on its Twitter feed and the link to a .rar compressed file is here. The group’s website BankOfAmericaSuck.com appears to be down as of this posting, probably because it’s overwhelmed (or perhaps BofA has attacked it?).

The disinformation team hasn’t had a chance to analyze the leaked material from BofA yet – anyone who has please post your thoughts in the comments.

    For those curious, it looks like you need to sort by date and start with boa10001. The next should be 10002. The dates in the images should progress correctly this way.

      Except the actual leaks, those will be in reverse. Just pay attention to the dates in the images, you guys are a smart bunch.

    For those who want a ‘in a nutshell’ version of whats been analyzed so far and what it amounts to…one of BoA’s outsourced insurance providers (Balboa) was apparently being pressured to quickly erase numbers from files that would match loans and insurance to specific houses in documentation…the idea being to make it impossible for investigators to connect the dots and determine when, where or if acts of fraud had occurred…specifically unsavory practices like instructing insurance salesmen to falsely claim they were BoA employees…to increase the confidence of people on the phone…as well as ginning up phony claims of necessity regarding more expensive insurance services that weren’t actually legally required.

    What it amounts to is organized premeditated mass destruction of evidence…ordered right from the top. There’s some buzz from people claiming that its all a reverse psy op from BoA to reduce potential later damage in the event of the release of even more damning info…but considering how bad this looks already…I seriously doubt it.

      As I was reading it, I got this weird feeling it was fabricated. Seemed almost like a bad script. …or the emotional exhaust of a disgruntled employee. Honestly, it was a little hard for my worn out brain to follow. I fell asleep twice and lost my place. I’ll probably go over it again sometime when I’m not feeling so enervated.

      Real or not, none of it seems to be all that surprising. How many times, even in my life time has the deliberate destruction of evidence of some sort of wrong doing by a corporation or government been brought to light with seemingly zero consequence?

      It makes me feel more powerless.
      I guess I can only hope that if it’s real, the dots ARE connected, and any “acts of fraud” or “unsavory practices” are dragged out into the open and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    I took a look at this and sadly it has no real information. It is a series of e-mails with accusations and complaints about working for BoA but no actual proof being released. I’m not saying that they are lying or they are wrong but the reason no one will take this seriously is because there is no proof in this set of e-mails. Getting law enforcement or regulatory bodies to investigate the largest bank in the country strictly on the word of an upset former employee is just not going to happen without solid proof.

    So I assume then that so far this is only the beginning of the info? If not then from what I’ve read from the comments here it doesn’t seem like there is all that much that can be used to actually ‘take down’ a bank. Here say from E-mails simply won’t prove too much of anything. Is Anonymous claiming that their leaks are the ones that Assange promised? If so, then it was supposed to be quite huge…..I’m hoping there is something a bit more juicy to come.
