I had my wells fargo accounts for 21 years (since 1991). They assured me free checking for life. I switched to them after tcf bank repeatedly stole money out of my account. Then they renigged on their free checking, they promised i could avoid fees by jumping through a few hoops, so i played along. Then less than a year they started making the hoops more and more absurd... Minimum daily balance, minimum card transactions, minimum direct deposit, minimum account transfers...
Then i moved to hawaii and the bank manager assured me there was wells fargo in hawaii (there isn't, and thank god). I closed my account after 21 years because i had no recourse to keep my supposedly"free"checking account free any more. On three separate occasions i got the banker to admit over the phone that their policies amount to "rich get richer, poor get poorer".
Their own bankers don't really like where the company is headed. Such a mad cash grab is usually indicative of a company that's about to go belly up, so if i were you i would divest out of wells fargo today. Incidently, i'm now with hfs federal credit union, and so far my experience has been great. Their terms are: minimum average balance of 50$, minimum one transaction per year, and if you don't meet them there's only a$1 fee. So happy to be rid of wells fargo.
Be careful of the credit card you get from Wells Fargo. I have good credit may not be the best but after my promotion rate period was over Wells Fargo awarded me a 25.99% interest rate. According to them I might as well have filed for bankruptcy with in the last 7 years. And the best part they do not have to provide an explanation for there interest rate decision.
Attempted to close out accounts over 2 years ago. Even after getting what was supposedly my exact balances on that date, they left $1. 13 in an account. On 11/17/2014 i received a notice stating that in december 2014 they would begin charging me a $10. 00 monthly service fee. I called immediately and was told they had to reactivate my account to be able to close it. Told that it would take 2 business days, i called back on wednesday 11/19/14.
Not reactivated. Told to call back thursday 11/20/14 not reactivated. Told to call back friday 11/21/14. Not reactivated and i had been lied to so far. Nobody had submitted the reactivation request. I am so very tired of the moronic liars working for wells fargo. I have now been told to call back on 11/26/14. I hope wells fargo loses all of their customers!
