Re: Wells Fargo employees created millions of fake accounts

This is very disconcerting, and is making me rethink my relationship with Wells.

I am not sure they are being honest with me. I called them to set up a travel notification when I went to Italy back in June. They were asking account verification questions, and one of the questions they asked me was, "and I see you have a savings account?" I said that I had never had a savings account, and if they were seeing one it was a problem. The person at the call center said, "Don't worry, we'll handle it.". This account never showed up on online banking. We never got a statement for it. Yet, they saw we had a savings account.

I think more people should leave Wells Fargo. I know its a slow tedious process because of automatic withdraws and direct deposits, but you shouldn't bank with these mega banks. I have decided to leave Wells Fargo and making the transition out.

At least their CEO decided to walk the plank today. Good riddance.

It's very concerning how these big banks act. Our government really needs some balls and to change their ways. The world has changed since America was established 200 years ago, and it's okay to heavily regulate businesses that effect the economy, handle information, and deal with people in such a negative way. These banks should not only be heavily regulated on business practices, but also on the technology they use.

In my opinion, one should have a choice between a government fun/run bank (with no Wall Street owners) or a credit union. There's just too much information and too much money on the line for stupid shenanigans.
