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.
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
