I wonder if WF is not still smarting from all that fraudulent activity a few years back? They probably can not afford, right now, to turn down such a high volume of good business...almost a half billion dollars since 2012 to one industry.

With piss poor service, piss poor marketing attitude I would love to change my dad’s banking in a heartbeat if only he didn’t have his military retirement, social security and another monthly income being directly deposited with WFB. I have POA over all his activities since he is in a VA nursing home but it seems that each entity has its own requirement concerning POAs.

Can you be more specific? Any chance you may be mistaken, may want to reconsider OR that you spoke with someone who wasn’t actually or accurately espousing WF’s actual position(s)?

I mean! How Do You Explain THIS ...

NEWS: Wells Fargo Continues To Support Gun Manufacturers, NRA

[B][I]Despite other banks discontinuing support of gun manufactures, Wells Fargo & Co. is standing their ground and holding onto their ties to firearm companies and the National Rifle Association.

Sh*t, wait, THERE’s MORE! “Unlike Wells Fargo, a number of big banks, including Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co., said they would reduce ties to gunmakers after the February mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school that left 17 dead. Wells Fargo also has a long relationship with the National Rifle Association, offering credit and operating its primary bank accounts.”

I was just reading an article on that. It is "dunno". Keeps being one fiasco after another coming out about how they created fake accounts, seized cars that didn't belong to them, etc.

Half a billion is a drop in the tea cup even for them. They've got something like 1.3 trillion in deposits. That said, IIRC the article said their commercial deposits were up slightly, but consumer deposits were down about 2% and there is a very good indication total deposits may end up slipping 7-10% over the next couple of years as people are sick and tired of how WF has basically F-ed over so many of their customers.

How some of the C level execs aren't in jail...

Well actually I know why, but it still makes me sad about the state of our country.

See post #8. It was the bank manager who told us that they were anti-2A. He was pretty clear about it!

I really can't understand how anyone can still do business with these thieves.

No one in jail, no admission of guilt. Just buy thier way out.

I think they are.

We seem to have very short memories around here. I know it was posted on MDS but I cannot find it.

Wells Fargo is in trouble anyway. They are still trying to recover after horrible abuses on their customers, to include an insurance scam revealed this month as well as the account fraud admitted a couple years ago. I have both business and personal accounts with Wells Fargo. I've never been one of their victims, but I have been notified several times about corrective measures.

My reason for mentioning this is that I believe they are really trying to rebuild their reputation. This means the things you may have heard years ago about them might no longer apply. I think the term "under new management" is a good way to describe them. If you see positive things, such as the NRA article, perhaps the benefit of the doubt should be given. I've been quite happy with their banking services over the years, so as banks go, you can definitely do worse!
