Wells Fargo is a great bank !! If I overdraft and have a direct deposit coming the next day from my check they NEVER charge me an overdraft fee and if they do they reverse it automatically and send me an email. I also bank with Chase Bank and there is no Chase Bank in MN so if I overdraft for $3.00 they will still charge me for $35.00. They will only credit you once per year (as a customer courtesy !!). In the interim, if you overdraft with Chase Bank they will keep charging you -- their customer service is terrible !!!! Wells Fargo is the best bank around !!!!
I signed up for a Wells Fargo online checking account around fifth teen months ago and I have loved this account. First off they gave me a two hundred and fifty dollar sign up bonus. There is no fees if you meet easy monthly minimums. Overall this account fits my needs plus there are plenty of atms that a free to get money at. I would highly recommend this bank to anyone.
In terms of security, it is zero!!!! If you want your money to get stolen by fraudulent activities, then you are most welcome to open an account here. The worst thing is that they don’t pay attention and want proof from you why your account is being stolen. Their investigation section is annoying!
It is frustrating that you have an account for several years and you get an overdraft charge for an unauthorized transactions!!!! One of my wise decisions is closing my business and all accounts with this bank! I feel really sorry for having accounts with this cheap bank! I wish I could rate wells forgo even minus 0!!!!!!!!
I was in a branch of this bank to open a checking account and the experience I had was very rewarding I was quickly attended and the attention was very personalized, they explained to me in detail the requirements I needed to open the account. I left very enthusiastic about the intitucion and recommended them to my friends and family
