Bank of America Sends Offer to 'Lisa Is A Slut'
"It does amaze me that there isn’t a little more of a flag for maybe certain words or phrases going up in someone’s name field," McIntire says.    (Twitter)

(Newser) – Feminist writer Lisa McIntire was shocked to receive a credit card offer from Bank of America with "Is A Slut" added to her name. "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire, you've earned this special offer," read the mailer that arrived at the home of McIntire's mother, the Los Angeles Times reports. The bank apologized after McIntire tweeted a picture of the letter, though it appears that her name was altered in the records of the Golden Key Honor Society, which was partnering with the bank on the offer, Forbes reports.

A spokeswoman for the honor society says McIntire's name was changed sometime between 2004 and 2008. "So it's possible that I've been sluttin' it up in a honor society's database for almost 10 years," McIntire says. "They haven't been able to pinpoint how 'Is A Slut' became my middle name, but they're still investigating." Last month, a Chicago couple received a mailer from OfficeMax addressed to "Daughter Killed in Car Crash." (Read more Bank of America stories.)
