Is this normal procedure?

I applieed to open a checking account online with Bank of america and it said my request was being processed and gave me a conformation number. It said i should know in a day or 2 if it is approved. Is that normal. I thought it would be immediate. ANyone ever ran into this?

  • They are doing a credit reference, in case you owe money to other banks for unpaid fees, etc...

  • Sounds like a good safety practice to me. Would you really feel secure with a bank that didn't check into activity online before processing it in this day of identity theft?
