Wells Fargo Bank – Consumer Complaint – September 14, 2016

Written by Consumer

Consumer Statement:

The IRS advised me I had a 1099 forgiven debt held against my account for 2014. This was news to me and I told the IRS that. After four months they sent me a letter stating the debt had been owed to wells Fargo Bank and gave me the account number. I have never had an account with Wells Fargo. I am retired for 13 years am 71 years old and have lived in the Philippines since 2003 and have never left the country.

Consumer Action Taken:

i responded back to the IRS that I have never had an account with Wells Fargo and that I think this must be a scam. They sent me a bill for $1,158 saying I owed that amount of taxes adding in the $24,081 that Wells said was the forgiven debt. Wells will tell me nothing about the account. I sent it all back to the IRS Appeals Advocate to see if they could help me or at least prove that the account is mine. I have not heard back from the Advocate but it will probably take many months to do so. Is there any way I can find out what the account is/ I think the IRS will research that for me but I wish to find out more myself.
