So I go to pay a personal loan today and Wells Fargo gives me a popup that I have to pay it at a different site. So I go to the new site and try to register, but it wants my account number. I don't have the bill's account number because Wells Fargo does not mail or email me statements. After 20 minutes, however, I find that the bill is linked through my wife's Wells Fargo account and I can pay it there... theoretically. The problem is, I can pay a bill through her account with her checking or with a non-Wells Fargo account, but not my separate Wells Fargo account. Another 15 minutes of researching wasted.
So then I get the bright idea to call, but you can't do a thing unless you have the account number. So I log back into my wife's acct, get the #, and press option 5 to get info on paying my bill online. Big mistake, cause the recording basically says, "Log in and pay your bill stupid." Obviously nobody would call and waste 5 minutes to hear that. After another 5 minutes, I finally get someone on the line to tell me, "You called the wrong number and the branch you want is 866-xxx-xxxx." So yet another 5 minutes, 4 different options, and finally I get a recording that they're closed. Wonderful....I just wasted a full hour trying to complete a 5 second task.
So that brings me to a question...if a company doesn't bill me, refuses to take my money after 6 or 7 diligent tries, and refuses to try to help me pay my bill, do I still have to legally pay it?
Wells Fargo has to be the worst bank ever and they could care less about their customers. Like so many others here, my accounts were bought out by them or I never would have become a customer to begin with. If you're considering a new bank for your financial needs, pick a small local bank where customer service still actually exists. Wells Fargo represents everything that's wrong with corporate America and they could care less about you.
At first this was my secondary bank, i didn't even mind that they transferred a dollar to my savings every time i used my debt card (which is in my opinion another way banks try to get you to go into the negative) but this month they without warning changed the rules on my checking account and charged me 10$ for the privilege of banking with them. They would only refund 25% of it and none to my boyfriend's account (also all of the money in his savings magically disappeared and customer service can't tell him why) not to mention a fifty dollar purchase that did a magical disappearing reappearing act on my checking, so, so long wells fargo, switched to a no monthly fee account unti i find a decent bank.
We have had unusual circumstances lately. I have third stage cancer and been in and out of hospital. We owed 3000. 00 on our car and they would not work with us to get it paid off. We mailed them two checks for it being three payments behind. They refused to cash the checks. They said all three had to be paid. They came and got the car. What kind of place does business like this
