Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXXi called the Wells Fargo Dealer services who holds my auto loan to explain my hardship. I explained that i would have the payment in a few days. I was told that it was fine and they would make a note. On XX/XX/XXXX i was called by Wells Fargo Dealer services about my late payment due. I explained to the lady by the name of XXXX XXXX or something like that. I was told by XXXX XXXX that she was attempting to collect a debt, i responded that i was aware of this issue and i would have the payment in by the following Tuesday or Wednesday. She explained to me that they did not accept mail in payments, i responded to her that i did not say i was mailing in a payment. This was repeated about 4 times as if she didn’t hear anything i said. Finally i thought we were finished after i told her when i received my direct deposit i would go online and make the payment on their website. We hung up the conversation. A few days later i checked my account to see if i had gotten my deposit and noticed that i was overdraft over {$500.00}. I called the bank and reported unauthorized debit. The bank took the complaint and refunded the over draft. I called Wells Fargo Dealer services about this and requested to speak to a supervisor about this criminal act. The supervisor listened to the recording and admitted that i never gave any permission for this action. He asked me what i wanted in the way of a solution. My response was to him that at this time i was so angry that i didn’t think it wise to make any decision at this time. I explained to him that i felt violated and assaulted. He proceeded to apologize for this act. However it was of no use to me. After taking a few days to determine my what action i should take i received another call from them. I asked that they would please not call my cell anymore as i am still stressed over the first incident. They literally violated my privacy and much more. I made the payment which was {$490.00} the original due was {$460.00}, today XX/XX/XXXX, I got another call about the next payment and now they are charging {$460.00} plus another {$83.00} for being 13 days past due. Why are they charging more this time than before? I wish to file federal charges against them but i do not know how. Could someone help please.
