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 profusely.
I agree with the above negative accounts. I have a similar one but do not want to disclose the details. Bottom line was I called the I-800 number twice... then I wanted to talk to the branch near me to get clarification and ask some questions if I should come to the bank personally for this transaction. NO ONE returned my call ... ever!!! Just said they would but if needed to call the 1-800 number which I had already done twice. This is the second very negative experience we have had with the Northeast branch. A bank change may be in order now.
I have to use wells fargo for business banking. They have terrible customer service for business clients. You are made to call in a change order ahead of time. I was told to do this when i requested $150 in $1 bills at the same time i was making a daily deposit. The teller then went on to say that she would do it this time since she was not that busy. When they do not come up with the same amount of money on your deposit as you do, they just enter their own amount. When finding out later and calling them, i asked: if there is a deposit discrepancy, why wouldn't you say something at the time? I was told: we do, if we aren't busy. I was the only car in the drive-thru lanes.
