So it appears, that 2012 we have not still figured out how to send a Bank Of America officer a 25 page document over the internet.
I am trying to send my scanned tax returns to a Bank Of America officer and being a online savvy guy, even a hacker, after 3 hours I have still not figured it out.
Premise: send 25 pages of scanned PDF file to a Bank Of America loan officer.
1 try: email: fails because scanned pdf is to large.
2 try: uploaded the zipped file to a FTP of my website and send the guy the url: fails, the guy will just not click on it because he is scared it will get him in trouble with security.
3. try: uploaded the zipped file to dropbox and send the guy the url: fails, the guy will just not click on it because he is scared it will get him in trouble with security.
4. try: paid for credit at PamFax, trying to send the files via online fax: getting a message on my first file that the Bank Of America fax number is too slow, so I will be charged double the rate: second file fails because it's too large. Almost out of credit at PamFax and still no files send.
5. try: begging the guy to click on the dorpbox links and just download the dam files: failed: no response
6. try: googeling around how to downsize a pdf file so that I can either email it or fax it... only seeing links to adobe acrobat pro which can do it but costs around $150.
7. try: going to a torrent site, and downloading a adobe acrobat pro with a crack, trying to install it: crack too complicated to implement, don't have time for that, so making regular trial registration for a 30 day trial, fortunately, it comes full featured for that period, so I can resize my files now... sending resized files to gay at BOF, no return messages so far... guy emails me got the files, replying back to him: "Great.... " after I send the reply email, geting a delivery failure, apparently the footer of his email with all the disclaimers does not pass their own security filters... go figure... but he got the files now... I have wasted 4 hours of my life.
