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.
My husband's company uses WF for payroll and THAT is the ONLY reason we opened our account there. We opened an account to be "close" to the source of our bi weekly funds. Needless to say from the beginning I have not been happy. For one, I was fraud ed in a different state which made me non qualified to be on the account. My husband was the sole account holder which is scary when you think of what could happen if he died. My husband went on a trip at the beginning of Feb- debit/credit card had multiple issues - intrastate usage locks, limit locks, etc. Before my husband left (2 weeks) he was approved for a "Secured" credit card and verbally agreed to a max limit of $700.00. The $700 was taken from his account the week of his trip leaving his account short. I represented him in his absence and received nothing but excuses..no resolution. Upon returning home my husband unequivocally requested that the secured card be revoked/cancelled since WF had the $700 and we had no card anyways PLUS the fees were outrageous.
We are ONE MONTH later and WF is STILL messing with that $700.00. We have seen OD transfers from our savings without prior consent...because the alleged "memo posted" $700 is not reflecting on our balance.
We are headed there NOW to address this issue ONCE and for all! I am sick to my stomach at the lack of follow thru and respect to people. My husband works in the oil field - 90+ hours a week and on occasion he even gets "turned away" at WF when he wanted to talk to his bank rep Wade. I thought I was getting somewhere with bank manager Chris - but not at this point. My emails and phone calls have been ignored even though all have been made on my busy husband's behalf.
This WF location that we are having POOR experience with is in Loveland, CO - at Centerra. We are VERY disappointed in this issue...VERY! :( I would not recommend this bank to anyone.
terrible customer service from wells fargo at 6150 Bollinger Rd, San Jose, CA 95129. this small branch is inside of safe way. The service here is horrible. personal banker and the manager (all Chinease) seem like they will get commission from opening new accounts. I just wanna open only one account, but end up opening so many..........without letting me know the detail, I found out when I went to ATM. they force you give them all 5 stars when the survey comes, and even threaten you that if you didnt give all 5 stars, they say they know your name and home address...... How wells fargo hired this kinda people being as their personal banker, I will never go back with wells fargo
