Had the scariest thing to happen just now. My home phone rang with an 800 #. I don't usually answer, but decided i wanted to know who was calling on a holiday, new years day 2013. It was an automated call saying it was from my bank wells fargo fraud detection wanting to verify some recent charges to my acct. The first thing it asked for was my zip code. Me being as suspicious of those kinda things as i am, i hung up. I called wells fargo myself. Lo and behold the call was legitimate. The guy started off with verifying my identity then he asked me if i was traveling in canada. I said no i am at home. Someone tried to use my debit card number to get $90 worth of gas. Jesus blocked the charges. Thank you god. Thanks to wells fargo also.
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.
Unfortunately my bank was taken over by WF since then banking has been a painful experience. Everything is outsource to somewhere else and you have to try to get through the maze of 800 numbers and talking to voice recordings. Strange banking errors like canceling transactions that I did and me having to call why- no explanations or apologizes to customers. Addition errors at the local branch with deposits... Horrid!
