I initially got Wells Fargo because I had Wachovia and it got absorbed by them. They have, without a doubt, the worst mobile app. Their overdraft protection services are ridiculous. When you call their customer service line, they make you feel like a liar. For example, I had two checking accounts because my direct deposit was still linked to one I was in the process of getting rid of, and I had overdraft protection linked from my savings to my newer account, and had thought I set it up for my older checking account that had the direct deposit going to it. Apparently you can't have 2 accounts and have both protected by the same Savings account. Okay, that's ridiculous, but fine I suppose, honest mistake. I truly thought they linked up any accounts you might have. The guy on the phone did not believe me at all, it was hilarious. I was awestruck at how unprofessional he, and those that helped prior were.
It's fine, whatever, keep your fees. That's why I closed my account today. I had overdraft protection linked to my credit card, I don't ever keep more than around $100 in my checking, so when it was empty and I bought an iphone app, it was even more awesome to find they charged me a "$25 overdraft protection fee" to use my credit card to pay for 2 seperate $1 apps. After it was all said and done I had paid 4 overdraft protection service fees for 2 items. Total: $75. Most expensive angry bird game I have ever bought in my life thanks to Wells Fargo. That's gas for an entire month for me. And of course, they will not reverse the charges, or at least give me just one overdraft protection fee. Opened my new account at ING today and will never be looking back. Fucking ridiculous.
I would like to speak to someone about an incident that took place today at the branch located at 600 Four Seasons Blvd Greensboro, NC 27407
My daughter received her pay from her employer and she attempted to cash her check at this location. She was told she had to be on the employers account in order to cash the check. My daughter returned to the car upset. I went inside to ask why she was not able to cash the check. Yes she has an account but did not see a reason why she was given a hard time with what she wanted to do. What happened to customer service? The teller said she would have to be on the owners account. I told her that was not so and that my daughter did not have to have an account to cash it. The teller would cut me off while talking and rolled her eyes. I understand it was close to closing time but she is there to do a job and the bank was still open. Finally the teller said my daughter would need two forms of id and provide her finger print. My daughter said ok and I agreed to go to the car to get her other id. At that point the teller said this is what you can do..go to another branch and said there must be a concern with her account I said it was none of her concern. I had a rough day and did not need to encounter such vile behavior from this establishment. I turned to her and said she needed to do her job and I asked for a manger. A lady named Ebony shouted at both of us and said . I am the manager. All of us had a shout match right in the bank!! I can't believe the treatment we received from this staff and I will admit I was following the negative flow of the whole visit to this bank and at that point resulted to using colorful language. I have never been treated in such a manner and lost my temper. I don't understand why we were told to go to another bank when I was going to get my daughters id. If you view video footage you can see me exiting while my daughter remained at the counter. That is when the teller told us to go to a different branch.
I have been with Wellsfargo since over 11 years and I have never given your company any problem. Recently I had a concern for which I called customer service who than transferred me to dispute department, where a representative got too personal and rude with me than came in supervisor who was also rude and personal and didn't extend any apology on his representative behavior. I will remove myself from this bank immediately. I was very embarrassed and angry with the customer service wellsfargo provide on phone.
