I have had Wachovia bank since I was 17(a very long time ago). For years I didn't have problems until about 2 or 3 years after wells fargo bought them out. They started charging outragous fees for each account which I luckily bi-passed by having direct deposit and a good job ! Well one day I deposited a check that had evidentally been a bad check .... Ok no big deal except for the fact that they withheld ALL of my funds until they were able to close my account (this process took about 10 days). Not only did this upset me but they were not going to call me and let me know what was going on !!!! They said they were just going to send me a check with my funds and send me a letter saying my account had been closed. So I was irate about that. I had asked them if I could retreive my funds from a branch in cash because I really could not wait for a check in the mail , my kids were hungry , I needed diapers and I needed gas to get to work ! , they said no . This was the worst week of my life. Because of this bank my kids went hungry and I had to use hand towels for diapers. It did not matter how long I had been a client or the fact that Ive never had a bad check. They disgraced me. For this reason I would never recommend this bank.
My husband's company uses WF for payroll and THAT is the ONLY reason we opened our account there. We opened an account to be "close" to the source of our bi weekly funds. Needless to say from the beginning I have not been happy. For one, I was fraud ed in a different state which made me non qualified to be on the account. My husband was the sole account holder which is scary when you think of what could happen if he died. My husband went on a trip at the beginning of Feb- debit/credit card had multiple issues - intrastate usage locks, limit locks, etc. Before my husband left (2 weeks) he was approved for a "Secured" credit card and verbally agreed to a max limit of $700.00. The $700 was taken from his account the week of his trip leaving his account short. I represented him in his absence and received nothing but excuses..no resolution. Upon returning home my husband unequivocally requested that the secured card be revoked/cancelled since WF had the $700 and we had no card anyways PLUS the fees were outrageous.
We are ONE MONTH later and WF is STILL messing with that $700.00. We have seen OD transfers from our savings without prior consent...because the alleged "memo posted" $700 is not reflecting on our balance.
We are headed there NOW to address this issue ONCE and for all! I am sick to my stomach at the lack of follow thru and respect to people. My husband works in the oil field - 90+ hours a week and on occasion he even gets "turned away" at WF when he wanted to talk to his bank rep Wade. I thought I was getting somewhere with bank manager Chris - but not at this point. My emails and phone calls have been ignored even though all have been made on my busy husband's behalf.
This WF location that we are having POOR experience with is in Loveland, CO - at Centerra. We are VERY disappointed in this issue...VERY! :( I would not recommend this bank to anyone.
terrible customer service from wells fargo at 6150 Bollinger Rd, San Jose, CA 95129. this small branch is inside of safe way. The service here is horrible. personal banker and the manager (all Chinease) seem like they will get commission from opening new accounts. I just wanna open only one account, but end up opening so many..........without letting me know the detail, I found out when I went to ATM. they force you give them all 5 stars when the survey comes, and even threaten you that if you didnt give all 5 stars, they say they know your name and home address...... How wells fargo hired this kinda people being as their personal banker, I will never go back with wells fargo
