MyBankTracker rated Wells Fargo based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
Just spent close to an hour on the phone with WF about an ATM deposit that they decided to suspend. Mind you, the check was from Well Fargo Retirement Services and made out to me with the same address that the bank has on file for my home address. I only happened to notice that the check was suspended because I was online getting ready to pay bills.
When I called to find out what was going on, I was told that the name on the check did not exactly match the name on my account.
Seriously? Why have I never had a problem with my paychecks that are direct deposited? Why have I never had a problem with my IRS refund checks? I have been a customer for 10 years and never had a problem with this.
You would think that a check from Wells Fargo Retirement going into a Wells Fargo Checking Account would be a gimmee. Unbelievable!
I ended up speaking to 3 different people (the first was very patient and understanding) and still didn't get a solution. The "supervisor", Chris, started out friendly, but when I asked him to quit hiding behind policies and procedures and to use Common Sense, he got very short with me. He got me to a real "GEM" of a manager, "Jay", who acted like I had interrupted his smoke break. I never used one curse word and was simply asking them to tell me the truth, but that caused them to get pretty defensive.
I understand that accidents happen, but only the first person that I spoke to had the sense enough to apologize. When I hung up on Jay, my problem was not handled. I was told that they would be sending the check back to me or I could call Retirement Services to see if there was anything that they could do. Not one person took ownership of the situation. Not one person offered to oversee the problem and see it through to the end. I was actually told that this was NOT a bank error.
Only after I got off the phone with these people that I got a call from Joanna in ATM Adjustment Services. She took care of the issue and she apologized profu
moved to NC from TN. Closed my bank account in TN and obtained a certified check. Opened an account at well fargo and the put a hold on my check for 12 days. gave us to $200 and two debit cards until the rest is available. Tried to set up one-line bill pay using my debit card and they said the card was already cancelled. Went to Well Fargo and they cancelled my card and put another hold on my account. said they couldn't obtain the funds from TN. They made us call the TN bank to have them send a letter advising the funds were there. When we talked to the TN Bank they said the funds already went through. Then they accepted the letter and still held the funds. Manager was no help never called me back. Don't bank with Wells Fargo.
I went to cash checks and the whole bank is blocked off by cops, fire trucks and ambulance.. Couldn't get anywhere near the bank.. I called an hour or so after and no one is answering.
