Issues with Wells Fargo

I've had a secured Well Fargo Credit Card for 13 months. Last month they mid cycle updated when I used it to charge $580 our of $600 for the insurance protection. I paid it to $0 on time. I decided to wait for the cycle to update normally, as I'm wanting to find some auto financing.

 

I wrote to verify what my update date would be and was told 7/18/2012.

So it's 7/21/2012 and I got the day to go app-o-rama, I got my three reports. The card still has the same amount from last month.

I wrote the bank again, after the auto respone, and second email I got a repersentative that said we updated it, we will not be able

to update it again till 8/18/2012. You can purchase your reports.... blah blah.

 

Did they use snail mail to update my report perhaps. The repersentative said to dispute, giving 5 credit bureau's contact information for usps.

Is this just customer no service, or do I really have to go and wait for the dispute process to go through online, In a week or so.

Re: Issues with Wells Fargo

It can take time for the update to get into the CRA's databases.

 

I know, I know: I even have worked in lenders in their infrastructure groups, and I don't understand it as there's certainly no technical limitation, but it's there unfortunately.

 

Check again in a few days via Credit Karma or whatever since TU is usually the last of many people's reports to update.

Unfortunately your at the mercy of the bureaus and when they can update it. Usually if they send it though the E-OSCAR system it updates quickly, but TU is very very slow with updates lately, often taking up to 2 weeks to update compared to EX / EQ.

Re: Issues with Wells Fargo

I figured as much. It is probably cheaper for WF.

 

I just like how they mid-cycle the balance the day after the charge is made, but when the shoe

goes on the other foot...

 

I haven't liked the service very much anyway, I want wachovia back.
