Bank of America junk mail refers to recipient as ‘slut’

A woman got quite a surprise when she opened a piece of junk mail from Bank of America.

Lisa McIntire says a credit card offer from Bank of America arrived, addressed to “Lisa Is A Slut McIntire.” 

Bank of America has apologized.

It says the offending letter originated at the Gold Key International Honor Society, which was jointly marketing the card with the bank.

The incident is reminiscent of one in January, when OfficeMax sent junk mail to a grieving Illinois father mentioning that his daughter had died in a car crash. OfficeMax blamed that on a third-party company from which it had rented a mailing list.
