Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX XXXX had a no interest money back guarantee with Wells Fargo. T he guarantee was if the XXXX XXXX and product did not work properly then return the XXXX XXXX for full refund. I returned the XXXX XXXX because I was told by XXXX that my XXXX XXXX were too small and could not work properly. XXXX agreed that the guarantee was not met and thus they would take care of debt with Wells Fargo.
That is the last I heard of it. I do not owe Wells Fargo an y money for XXXX XXXX XXXX in 2014 . Further, they have and continue to violate my HIPAA and PHI rights by communicating information protected under HIPAA to many third parties that have not right to any of my protected Medical Information. They have communicated this HIPAA vio lation while I have been on the phone and they are communicating to a third party without my authorization. XXXX also continues to communicate with third p a rties and violate my HIPAA rights. Now we have our attorney working to correct and protect my PHI and HIPAA rights.
