FaWells Fargo Bank
I opened my account on Friday December 28, 2013 at the Wells Fargo (Corrales, NM branch) with a $1000.00 check from The Garden City Group c/o Indian Trust Settlement. This lawsuit $3.4 billion was finally settled after many years, thousands and thousands of people were issued checks on December 12, 2012 so their should've been money in the account and Chase should've known all this money would be going out. When Wells Fargo put the check through Chase bank and the loss prevention dept. said the check was suspicious because their were multiple checks coming out of that account and the check number was out of sequence (obviously) but they did cash the check. But by them telling Wells Fargo that, It's made them suspicious and they put a hard hold (freeze) on my account, which means I can't get access to any of my money and can't cash any checks. I went into my bank and when the banker called to verify the check was good, she than called loss prevention when told them It's was good and got a contact number from Chase but that isn't good enough for Wells Fargo they want a letter on Chase letterhead stating the check amount, the, number, the date It went through and a lot of other stuff faxed to them. Chase won't do that because I'm not a customer and they did cash the check. I don't know what to do but my account will be closed in 10 days. Wells Fargo is the worst Bank ever and does not care about Its' customers, because if they did they would help you and not insist they need a letter (check was verified). I know someone their in loss prevention can clear It up, especially knowing It is a good check. It is their screw up . I don't know if this will mess me up in chex systems where I can't ever cash checks again. As if Chase would help a non-customer with a letter they really need to get to access their account (even though It was there fault). From alking to other people and reading reviews, Wells Fargo is the worst bank ever to bank with.
I am a 74 year old senior citizen, and needed one document notarized at Wells Fargo 3434 Tidwell in Houston, Texas. I arrived there at approximately 1:15 pm, signed in and was told to have a seat. I am partially unable to see in one of my eyes, and have other medical conditions. They had me waiting from 1:15 pm to approximately 2:20pm. Many customers came in and signed in after I did, but they disregarded me and called them. I went and complained on the length of time I was waiting. It was at that time, they called me in and signed the document that needed notarized. It only took three minutes to sign my document, but they had me waiting over an hour. This particular Wells Fargo has had bad customer service for a long time. I believe they really don't care about the community/customers at all. This is only a reflection on management at this particular branch. When it come to customer service this particular branch can not compete with Chase or Bank of America. I advise all customers to stay away from this Wells Fargo, especially the elderly and handicapped. The staff at this Wells Fargo will ignore the elderly and handicapped.
Tried to get a payroll check cashed at the drive up teller. My husband and I bank somewhere else but the check was cut from the employer's Wells Fargo account, any other bank would cash it right? Not this one, they want you to come inside and inconvenience yourself while you are in a hurry and talk to a banker about setting up an account. If I have told you that I simply want to cash the check and that I am already happy with where I have been banking for ten years- leave me alone and cash the check. Perhaps it is policies like this that inconvenience the customers that are keeping people from banking with you in the first place. If you are so hard up for accounts that you have to force feed your pitch you may want to re evaluate.
