I was a customer of Wells Fargo Bank for about one decade. After I moved, I became Wachovia's customer for a few years until Wells Fargo Bank swallowed the smaller bank and took over 5 of my accounts without my consent.
I tried to open a safety deposit box at Rancho Cucamonga branch; its manager named Baldemar of his Cambodia descent barked at me like a mad dog in broken English, "In my country, females obey my male orders. If not, get out of my bank." He is a troublemaker coercing with a bully named Eugenia of Wells Fargo Bank (Prevention Center), who called me, did not let me speak, bullied me, and then he slammed his phone to disconnect the call. Without giving me a chance to find another bank, he abruptly closed all of my 5 accounts to demonstrate his bigotry shouting, "The bank may close your Accounts at any time WITHOUT a reason." He then stole all of my balances and refused to produce evidence that he ever returned my balances. That is communist, evil, and illegal seizure of my money.
Eugenia dared to tell BBB, "We do not condone discourteous behavior from our employees, as this is not how we conduct business." We all knew his statement is a lie. He may fool BBB, but NOT to Wells Fargo customers!
We need to collectively file a class action against Wells Fargo Bank and hold it accountable for its fraudulent, bad faith, and unethical banking operations. I am seeking a recourse to recover my damages and agreed with a lot of the previous reviews strongly NOT recommend this bank to anyone. It has been a nightmare!
Wells Fargo is a customer-hostile operation and this branch fits their mold. It took the rep over an hour to open a new checking account and it originally charged over $30/month in fees. When I deposited a big check, they refused to release the funds for 10 days even though it was drawn on the Northern Trust Bank and came from a major investment firm. It seemed very unethical -- why do they get to use my money for 10 days before they release it to me? It clears overnight as an ACH deposit. It's called "kiting a check" and it's supposed to be illegal. Virtually every employee I have dealt with at this branch for different simple services, such as safe deposit box access or depositing a large amount of change, has had a "can't do" attitude and has been sort of rude and dismissive. Go to another bank where they don't withhold your money for a week and a half and treat you with more professionalism than you will ever find at Wells Fargo.
This is the place to be for your banking needs, My experience was wonderful on my first visit. The bank Manager and the employees are very Professional and Friendly, I am very happy to be a customer of this bank.
