A man is suing Bank of America claiming the bank gave him a heart attack.

The customer said that the bank's mistake caused him stress and he collapsed in a local branch and had to be rushed to the hospital.

'They absolutely wouldn't listen to him', said attorney Paul Goodson who represents 61-year-old John Stecher. reports that Stecher went to the branch office on Carmel Road in Charlotte in November 2011 to pay his mortgage but Goodson said the bank lost the payment.

In this lawsuit, Goodson claims his client started getting phone calls from bank employees saying his 'credit history would be negatively impacted' and he 'was in jeopardy of foreclosure' alleging it caused his client to start feeling ill from what he calls extreme stress.

He said Stecher went to the bank and while pleading with the bank manager to find his payment, he became distressed while feeling shortness of breath.

Stecher had a heart attack and is now suing the bank.
