WELLS FARGO BANKING Wells Fargo Visa Card WELLS FARGO BANKING/CREDIT CARD - WE USE YOUR MONEY AGAINST YOU .. Internet
28th of Jun, 2011 by User639585
Since I have used Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Company for several years now and have always enjoyed doing business with them, I decided to try the Wells Fargo Bank. BIG MISTAKE!!! I went to the local branch in Colorado and opened a checking account with them. I was told I coud have a "fee-free" account if I opted for certain "services". I already do the "direct deposit" thing so that was no problem. I also wanted to set up a savings account/overdraft fund, so that was fine. Then the gal (who told me she was always available.. leave a message and she would get right back to me) said I needed to sign up for their VISA card services. Again, no problem. I only had one other card and I could use this one for emergencies. I got all the paperwork signed and was supposed to call in to activate my credit card. 1) I called to activate the credit card. The gal had typed in the wrong birth date. I was able to get that settled. 2) I kept getting charged monthly "service fees" and I would contact the bank and they would tell me I hadn't signed up for the multitude of services I needed to sign up for.. which I had. This continued for about 3 months. 3) They also messed up my checks, which I had to reorder. Finally, I gave up and decided not to close the account I had at my "old bank". I read the statement from Wells Fargo Banking about how to close out one's account. It pretty much said to just remove the money from the account and let them know. I did. After that, I received statements indicating they were transferring money from my savings account .. which now had NO MONEY IN IT .. to cover my overdraft ... of which I had none. I started receiving nasty letters and threatening invoices and I told them they had no right to remove my money from my account because 1) I had already removed it and 2) I was no longer a customer. I got a nastygram back saying they would close my account, which I had already done, but I had to officially close my VISA card, which had no balance on it and I hadn't used it for MONTHS. NOW THEY ARE CHARGING ME INTEREST on $27.00 they say they took from my savings. And now they are turning me over to the .... shuddering ... CREDIT REPORTING BUREAU because I owe THEM $27.00 which was MY MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE. Talk about robbing "Peter" to "Pay Paul".

I was continually being charged for NOT having the numerous accounts that I actually did have. That was finally straightened out but it took so long I had already given up on you. Don't try to pass your mistakes onto me. I am providing you with the most detailed and accurate information I possibly can but I realize it may not be enough in order for you to understand. I am totally sorry I was naive enough to attempt to deal with the Wells Fargo Bank. It is NOTHING like the mortgage company. Someone (everyone??) needs to take a lesson from the mortgage department. Goodbye. RESPONSE

Subject: Credit Card questions (KMM16018260I15977L0KM) Dear Thank you for contacting Wells Fargo. My name is Sheila, and I am happy to assist you. The charge you are questioning in the amount of $25.00 posting on 04-11-11 and reflected on your 04-25-11 statement represents an Overdraft Protection advance from your credit card account to your Wells Fargo checking account to cover an overdraft. Our records indicate you requested our Overdraft Protection feature, a service which can prevent checking overdrafts and can save you money on returned check fees. Unfortunately, we are not able to remove the Overdraft Protection and/or Cash Advance unless this Overdraft Protection advance was the result of a bank error. For assistance with any questions regarding the Overdraft Advance please contact the toll-free service number printed on your checking account statement. The remaining $2.00 of your account balance is for the monthly assessed Interest Charges which are reflected on your 04-25-11 and 05-26-11 statements. If we can be of assistance with other matters regarding your credit card account please email us, call us at 1-800-642-4720, or call collect at 925-825-7600.

----------------- WHY did I just receive a statement for billing period 04/28/2011 to 05/28/2011 showing a balance of $27.00 DUE when I have not used this credit card in over a year?? The balance should be $0.00. It shows on the second page an "overdraft advance" of $25.44 at 21.49% interest. Would you please straighten this situation out? I do not owe for any overdraft charges. I have not used this credit card since I paid it off entirely over a year ago. No one else .. except the Wells Fargo Bank .. has access to this credit card account. I wish the bank had been half as good as the mortgage company!! Thank you for your assistance with this matter!! cd396f83-51f9-482f-a19c-fdaca20f32aa STAY AWAY FROM THESE CROOKS. It is so easy to turn people over to the credit reporting agencies nowadays. Don't set yourself up!!!
