San Francisco woman Lisa McIntire was shocked Thursday when she received a credit card offer from Bank of America addressed to “Lisa Is A Slut McIntire”.

After receiving the letter, she immediately posted it to Twitter.

Bank of America retweeted her with an apology, pledging to investigate into the problem. Apparently, the adjusted middle name originated from an academic society that was jointly marketing with the bank, and to which McIntire belonged.

A spokesperson from the Golden Key International Honor Society called McIntire that day and explained that someone had inserted “Is A Slut” into her society membership account sometime between 2004 and 2008.

“What kind of got my adrenaline pumping is that I’m a feminist writer on the Internet, so getting a piece of mail … that says I’m a 'slut' made me think, 'Oh god, which troll of mine is doing this?'" McIntire said. "But I don’t think that’s what happened here. I don’t think it’s aimed at me."

McIntire also tweeted Bank of America, questioning why the company didn’t flag certain words going into someone’s name field. Shortly after, a Bank of America representative called her and explained that many words are flagged, but “slut” is not one of them.
