Legalized thievery, big banks suckThey're ****s. I wanted to upgrade my checking account today and separate it entirely from my parents', so I gave them a call. The lady told me that in order to upgrade, I'd have to go the local branch BUT she could make a new one over the phone. I was lazy, so I was like "just make a new one." So she reads me pages and pages of disclosures, and then tells me that I needed $25 to activate the checking, and another $25 for the savings, for a total of (by my math) $50.
"No problem," I told her. I gave her my Visa info, and she transferred the funds. So she activates all the stuff, I sign into my old username (I didn't close the old checking account out). Everything looked fine; I had two new accounts, both with $25. So, in order to pay back my Visa, I transferred the money from both new accounts into my old checking account, because that's the account set-up to make the Visa payments.
So I go on to the Visa's website, and, not $50, but $75 was deducted from my credit availability. WTF. So I called Visa, and they told me: "Wells Fargo deducted three $25." So I call WF, and they're like "Oh this happens all the time, probably just a typo, nothing I can do."
Jerkoffs. Definitely should've went with the Ally account.
