Wells Fargo Auto Finance / taking a payment out of my checking account with my knowledge cause of a system error!
Made a phone payment on Oct. 12th 2007. I did the whole automated system where it ask for you account number and checking information. After entering all my information the phone system said there was an error and they would forward me too and operator/banker to take all my information. After doing all of that I started to receive letters from my bank that my account was over drawn and starting getting overdraft fees. Not knowing anything I used my debit call that weekend (Oct. 13-14) and thought everything was okay. Went to the bank the following Monday (Oct. 15th) to get a print of my banking statement too see why my account was negative. Comes to find out Wells Fargo Auto Finance ended up taking the payment that the operator took out plus the payment that I tried to make through their automated system. The automated system never game me confirmation number or anything saying that the payment had been accepted.
After getting my bank statement I called up Wells Fargo to see what was going on. On hold for about 10 minutes and I get a hold of someone in Pennsylvania and let me say they are so rude and stupid. I told the operator about my situation and she kept cutting me off not letting me complete a singe sentence. After being put on hold numerous times the operator told me to fax my bank statement to her. Then she said that there was a system error with the automated phone system and they apologize for the error. I was a little ticked at the time but kept my cool and asked her what am I suppose to do for money since it was Wells Fargo error and not mine. After sending about 10 faxes to Wells Fargo, they kept saying there weren't getting them even though I got the confirmation letter back from my fax machine. So finally after a week and ended up going to the local Wells Fargo Finance place and talked to one of their people. I must say the guy was very nice and helpful. But the operator gave the guy at the Wells Fargo Finance place the run around as well. I had him fax my bank statement from their office and they called my late Friday night saying they got my fax but couldn't read it. That's kind of funny since I put for them to call my cell phone on the fax and they called, but couldn't read the fax. So know it's been a whole week and nothings been taken care of.
Come Monday morning (Oct. 22th) and I called Wells Fargo and I talk to a operator in Tempe, Arizona. She asked for me to fax my statement to her and she would look at it. Well I called Wells Fargo back a couple of hours after I faxed and wanted to confirm that received a clear copy of my fax. I ended up getting a hold of an operator in Pennsylvania and she was unable to forward me to someone at the Tempe, Arizona office. So I talked to the floor supervisor for the collection department in Pennsylvania. The guy said that I could go to the bank and they would take money from the Federal Reserve and Wells Fargo would pay for that. Went to the bank and told him what the guy said and they just laughed. Lucky my bank was nice enough to take money out my checking account even though it was in the negative. Thanks to Wells Fargo error my checking account was $900.00 negative and all they could say was were sorry. So whenever I called to check on my account I would ask the operator when she asked for my account number if they were in the Tempe or Pennsylvania office. I will say that the people in Tempe are a lot more friendly then the Pennsylvania folks.
I also requested that they call me when they got my fax and never received a single phone call. So when I was talking to a operator they told the would email a certain person and tell them to call, never heard my phone ring. Finally I received to checks in the mail. One for the extra payment they took out and one for some of the over draft fees that my bank had charged me.
I guess I just want everyone to know not to do business with Wells Fargo cause they don't give a hoot about their customers and are extremely rude. I even had on manager tell me that "we are paying you back so I don't seeing it being a big deal". Talk about pushing the wrong buttons. So know I'm waiting for another check for the overdraft fees to get my checking account out of the negative. I also asked the Wells Fargo dummy why they call me when I have payment that is one day late and take my money out the same day but they can wire money to my account. I wish me luck I'm about to call them here shortly too see what the status of my account is.
