You Can Not Bank on This Bank
1.This is the bank that took a thumb print before they allowed me to DEPOSIT a check into my own account.
2. This is the bank that after I cancelled a payment to a vendor because I did not want a revolving service, issued me a new card with a new number and when the vendor asked why the payment was turned down, they gave them my new card number and paid for the service I did not want.
3. This is the bank that charges $2 every time you use an ATM that is not their ATM. I gave away about $140 over a year’s time before I realized the ATM I was using was not free.
Today Mrs. C wanted to deposit a check into her account. We have separate accounts. The check, an insurance rebate for $16.24 was made out to both of us. Mrs. C anticipated Wells Fargo would have a problem with this request, so I signed the check under her signature along with my account number.
This was not good enough for Wells Fargo. I had to make a trip to the bank with Mrs. C and show my driver’s license and my Wells Fargo ATM card before they would deposit the check into Mrs. C’s account.
Please do not tell me to change banks. I have automatic payments made into and out of my account, and I do like their on-line banking system…a previous bank I used had a horrible on-line system that was down half the time. I can not bear attempting to change all those automatic instructions…it took forever to get them right the first time.
So, I won’t change banks.
Instead I just screw with them.
Wells Fargo has a branch in Red Bank NJ and also in Long Branch NJ.
Periodically I call them up and ask if they could check my account.
I tell them I’m not sure if my account is at the Red Bank branch of their Long Branch bank, or the Long Branch branch of their Red Bank bank?
They used to call for a manager, Now they just hang up.
