This wouldn’t have happened if Dale Robertson was still doing “Tales of Wells Fargo’’.

Good thing they don’t have a dog, or the Cops may have come by and shot it for good measure.

I was going to get a Wells Fargo account to make it quicker to clear my payment on a contract gig where the paying company is in California and I am in Maryland. Well screw that. Bank of America maybe. And I am going to write Wells Fargo in longhand, and tell them why.

Forget Bank of America!

They tried to charge me $5 to cash a check issued by one of their account holders!

They will NEVER get my business!

$5? Is that all? A neighborhood bank wanted $10.

You want the Wells Fargo wagon to rob YOU?

This is even sillier than the snippet above reads. It looks like whoever ransacked that house also slept in it with bongs and beer cans.

WF had better eat it all, then worry about getting their contractors’ liability policies to pay up. If those policies aren’t frauds. In no way should these victims have to wait on the contractors’ policies.

Well maybe someone should revise “The Music Man” to take the Wells Fargo wagon song out. It’s giving that group of shysters way too much positive publicity.

If it were me I would go after the contractor(s), Wells Fargo, and the actual lein holder (aka investor) who hired Wells Fargo to manage the loan.

The admission of guilt by Wells Fargo would be the first piece laid in front of the judge.

“I am in Maryland. Well screw that. Bank of America maybe.”

That’s a bad choice!!!

BofA makes more mistakes than any other bank mainkly because the are such low pay and they have a constant turnover of help.

Years ago iI did a lot of contract work on their buildings and had to have an account in BofA.

I never used it for anything but a transfer station for funds from them!!!

That explains their e-accounts. The machines goof up less than the tellers do.

Try Chase, my wife has them and loves them. I’ve had Wells Fargo since 1988 and they treat me like...

We use an NC Credit Union and USAA. Great service and none of the Bank of America trash.

Well, a salute to you for your military service, however USAA would not be possible for me.

Maybe it was a practice run for later on.

They tried to charge me that amount for a BOA check, from BOA, made out to me, that I tried to cash at BOA.

Having used both BOA and W-F, I infinitely prefer the latter. All banks make mistakes, but BOA never seems to fix the conditions that lead to mistakes.

Better yet, how can you get Wells Fargo to clean it out, then pay you a bunch of damages on top?

perhaps banks should be required to post a bond and pay for a month of storage.

Usually houses in that kind of danger have already been vacated and nothing but junk left behind. That’s why the law hasn’t cared much about providing safeguards. But a bond against mistakes would make sense. That would provide a reason for banks to iron such mistakes out of their processes. Too bad SWAT raids can’t also require bonds.

Almost makes you wish John Dillinger, Baby-Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd would come back to life, doesn’t it?

oh, they’re insured. It’s just not talked about. You never divulge your insurance position as it promotes scams and such.

K&R is a big one to never talk about (kidnap and ransom). You work for a major U.S company and are sent abroad, you’re insured and don’t even know it.

Wells Fargo is dense when it comes to obeying the law. They are far too California centric.

Though I do advise all to stay FAR FAR FAR away from Bank of America. (like the plague)
