We went into a branch to discuss the changing our checking account level with a banker. After waiting a couple of weeks i went in to close the old accounts. Found out the new checks were not ordered accounts were not linked as we had been told they were. For five months we have needed to contact the bank because of fees being charged that should not be. We do not get an answer as to why we are charged, just the list of requirements to avoid fees. Today we were told the $10,000 monthly balance, is a $10,000 monthly deposit. I would be rotfl if it was't our money. This same banker changed our account level without our approval. We now have to wait to get it corrected. While we have been wf customers for many years the quality our service from wf has been in a study decline. We will not be using wf any longer than to fix the current mess the bankers have made. There have been some good bankers out there, but too many are not to stay.
On 12/19/14 i was physically bullied and intimidated by a police officer at a branch in northwest houston because i was complaining about the arbitrary and unfair 7$ check cashing fee. After the incident i called customer service twice and it was unclear as to whether he actually worked there or was a customer. I either case it was uncalled for and innapropriate. If the cop worked there he shouldn't use physical intimidation when someone disagrees with policy. If he was just a client then he had no business standing 3 inches behind me and nudging me at the bank window as i conducted my business and should have been told to back away by the manager with whom i was speaking. I'm disgusted and appalled.
Great bank with a multiplicity of options. As a student, I appreciated the overdraft program which gives you a 'cushion' of credit for overdraft protection instead of innumerable fees.
There are definitely other reasons to use Wachovia, such as availability of ATMs, (almost) free-checking, etc. But these are the main benefits.
