Re: Wells Fargo Payback

I opened a checking account a few weeks back ($250 bonus for 10 swipes) I was going to close it right after the bonus, and before I could they shut it down!

They couldn't tell me what the hell happened to my $500 deposit either they withdrew it via E-check all they keep saying is "we cannot see that deposit sir" but my Penfed has -500 "Wells Fargo ACHfunding".... I'm going to be filing a complaint with the CFPB if I don't receive a check by Monday.

This is totally unacceptable and to think I had checking, savings, CDs, Note Loan, Personal Insurances Property Casualty, Credit Card and Investments before I wised up and left them. Long story short it related to their reconfiguration of Insurance for personal lines in Minnesota. How can they do that? Do they think we are all that dumb we will just let it go??? ;(

Re: Wells Fargo Payback

I have no idea!! The representative just kept saying how'd you fund the account? I said you guys took money out of my checking... he's like I can't see that here let me transfer you, and the next person is even more oblivious!! Then I asked for the checking # so when I file a dispute I can have a reference and he said "I can't give you that, it's closed".... obviously Smiley Surprised...

Re: Wells Fargo Payback

It's really quite astonishing that they'd pull such games after the disaster that befell them with the fake-account scandal. I guess some people haven't learned their lesson.

Rebuilding credit since 2015 (BK filed 8/14, discharged 12/14) - started out in 570's, now approaching 700 (FICO 4/17:TU 627/EX 662/EQ 659 FICO 8 or 690 NG 2, VS 3.0 4/21/17: TU 684/EX 685/EQ 691)! $951 Cap One secured/$3000 Cap One unsecured/$800 Amazon Prime Store Card/$2500 Discover It (NEW 03-21-17)/$10k PenFed used car loan/$5k Navient student loan. In the garden until Sept. 2017 unless I get an offer I can't possibly refuse...

I guess this is an excellent outcome for WF. Hard to see why would a dishonest company be that enticing to the 45%? Just because WF hand out a few hundred bucks so they could screw you up big time later?

I think those 45% are the people who don't keep up with the news so most of them are likely unaware of what's been going on with that bank.

And yet some people are still stupid enough to open a new credit card with them anyway...and I have to look at one of these idiots every time I brush my hair. Brain Damage is the only thing that makes sense.
