Consumer Complaint: About 30 years ago I opened an account with overdraft protection with Wells Fargo Bank.
Last year there was a overdraft on a check. The Bank never told me they were opening a credit card account for that overdraft. that was charging the maximum amount on the overdraft, interest and fees. A statement came in the mail about two weeks ago ( the only one sent ) saying we owe almost 2400.00 dollars to the Wells Fargo credit account which I didn’t know about. The bank was doing automatic transfers out of our account to the credit card until now. I talked to a XXXX XXXX in Customer Service about this and he asked didn’t Wells Fargo Bank tell you that they were opening and account in your name? XXXX was not aware of this account until now. XXXX XXXX told my husband and me that someone will call us tomorrow from Wells Fargo credit card. I talked to XXXX XXXX XXXX @ XXXX She Opened up a claim on XX/XX/2018 The claim was about this account my wife was not aware of. XXXX XXXX XXXX said she would get back to my wife and with the decision tomorrow. That XXXX XXXX XXXX would call by noon. But I was anxious after XXXX XXXX came and went. I called and a XXXX XXXX answered the phone saying XXXX XXXX was out for the day. XXXX XXXX said call on Monday.
