I started at wells fargo bank when they were called first interstate 28 years ago. I have excellent credit and have never been late on a credit card payment in 32 years with well over $150,000. 00 in lines of credit. I have a checking account, a savings account, and three wells fargo credit cards, that, up until yesterday had $13,000. 00 credit between them.
Three years ago, in january of 2009, i had a $20,000. 00 credit line at wells fargo. I borrowed a cash advance of $14,000. 00 for a business plan. I paid the full amount off in six weeks time! And, that is during a recession! Their thank you was to send me a letter a month later and cut my credit line down to $7,500. 00. Why? There was no reason given and when i called them, it got nowhere. I, as a taxpayer, helped wells fargo get their $25 billion bailout in 2009, so how do they treat me when i am never late on a payment in 28 years?
They chop my credit in half, the bunch of double-crossing idiotic jerks. In 2010, i borrowed $4,000. 00 once again against my wells fargo marstercard. Once again, in a recession, i paid the lump sum off a few weeks later. How did wells fargo thank me? A month later, they cut my credit in half again and made it $3,000. 00. This is the last straw. I borrowed a cash advance this year, in 2012, and paid it off in full, for $2,200. 00, on friday, june 22, 2012. I went online four days later to check my account, and, bam! , i found that wells fargo chopped my credit card down to $1,000.
This was so insulting that it is stupid. I am not staying with a bank where i borrow a total of $22,000. 00 during a recession and pay it off each time within weeks of borrowing, just to watch them disrespect me. It is time to pull my money out and go elsewhere. If they ever ask for another bailout from taxpayers again during my lifetime, then i will protest it at every turn. They are jerks and they do not deserve favors from american taxpayers and they don't deserve our business.
I'm so disappointed with Wells Fargo. I started my first account as a 16 yr old in 1993, I've been a stellar customer for the past 23 years. I made a $2000 online loan payment, and accidentally withdrew money from my Wells Fargo account, resulting in an overdraft of about $500. Realizing my mistake, I called immediately to the bank to report my error. Was the overdraft fee reimbursed to my account??....I'll give you three guesses. And don't even get me started on my personal Wells Fargo credit card. It's terrible. Foreign fees, poor rewards program, always changing policies. The first five years were nice, but my marriage to Wells Fargo is over, I'm taking my checking account and my 780 credit score somewhere else. Believe me, don't burden yourself with Wells Fargo, they will cost you, time and money both.
I won't get into it too much, but I am so frustrated with Wells Fargo. I had money fraudulently taken out of my checking account from an online merchant (rhymes with BayPal) several months ago. After HOURS on the phone with customer service reps, at least 4 who all gave me completely different answers to my questions, I opened up a new account but was convinced to simply "freeze" the old account. I was told there was no way charges would be authorized from the old account number from now on. Well, wouldn't you know, the exact same thing happened again the other day. This time customer service was not only extremely rude, yelling at me and telling me I couldn't speak with a different manager, that I had to deal with her on the phone. Then when I insisted, she said she would transfer me, but simply put me back to the very beginning of the phone tree. I spoke with a different manager who was plain apathetic. He didn't care that I was upset, did not resolve anything, and basically gave me his blessing to go to another bank. That, I will. I miss Wachovia's customer service, even if they were lacking in other ways.
