I happened to "google" Wells Fargo cheating customers and was referred to this site. After reading the comments by others, I am convinced not to do business with Wells Fargo.
Over the past few years, my father sends a check for Christmas and B day. This thoughtful gesture had no major issues, since it was a US bank account, with US currency...in a well reputable Canadian Bank. In January of this year (2008), both US currency checks from both family members were returned to me by Wells Fargo with a brief message that I could no longer use the deposit ATM at the bank, I had to actually see a teller. Which of course, they never know what to do and have to get someone else, everyone in the bank looks at me like I am some criminal...which is why I started going to the ATM onsite with Wells in the first place. So after some teenager verified I wasn't pulling some Nigerian scam, deposited the checks into my account..case closed. Now this past week, I went into a Wells Fargo bank to deposit a $100 check from the National..same US account. They do it (it took 3-4 times to train the same branch) and tell me that I should NOT have been charged the $1.50 fee as before since there was no currency exchange. On May 28th, the amount showing was deposited, on May 30th, they withdrew the money back out, and stated on my account as "Fgn Check Adj.", so I guess dear ol'Dad sending $100 has now cost me $101.50 in total. I made calls, the first guy named Glen, hung up. The second person was unable to do anything and they took the fee but never gave me the "foreign" US cash from Canada. By the way, there was no issue of insufficient funds for Wells to try and pull that scam. So, we have to wait until Monday for my father to go to his bank and see whether he even got his cash back from Wells Fargo...hopefully those idiots sent it back in US currency!!!
At what point does the Federal Government get off their rear end and start placing some laws and control over banks such as Wells Fargo who are becoming more of an immediate threat to our daily lives.
