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.
Very poor customer service experience, on numerous occasions. The girl in the drive-thru had attitude from the start (not a first time), made me wait 10 minutes just for her to tell me to come inside. I was already running late, however i made the time to go inside and just get it over with. There, I was "greeted" (not what you would expect from a store manager-unprofessional ). The store manager had attitude with me as well, i didn't appreciate her tone of voice. All i wanted to do is withdraw my money and pay a credit card and be on my way. The whole process took 20 minutes, it was awful. I will never go back to this branch again. In fact, Wells Fargo in general. I always get great service with Chase Bank and that's where I'll be doing ALL of my banking from now on.
I had a fairly simple issue. I deposited some cash at this atm over the weekend and it didn't show up on my account. I dropped in today (monday morning) just to make sure and the girl who is working at the front is horrible. I can't remember her name, i just know it starts with an "l". Not only did she not fix my issue, she kept interrupting me and talking over me while i was talking.
I was in shock that i could even get a word in edgewise. Her customer service skills and ability to resolve my issue was pitiful to say the least. I'm seriously considering changing banks only after being with these guys for six months because of their lack of being attentive to their customers!
