A blood-sucking corporate leech who says that it is all about the customer, but then proceeds to force their employees into making bogus sales goals and to mislead their customer just to make a buck.
Why wait for someday, open a Wells Fargo checking account today, and be ready to be screwed over by people like Heather and Greg.

In 1852 Henry Wells and William Fargo founded Wells, Fargo & Co. to serve the West. The new company offered banking (buying gold, and selling paper bank drafts as good as gold) - and express (rapid delivery of the gold and anything else valuable).
Wells Fargo opened for business in the gold rush port of San Francisco, and soon Wells Fargo’s agents opened offices in the other new cities and mining camps of the West. In the boom and bust economy of the 1850s, Wells Fargo earned a reputation of trust by dealing rapidly and responsibly with people’s money. In the 1860s, it earned everlasting fame - and its corporate symbol - with the grand adventure of the overland stagecoach line.

The epitome of corporate greed. Being sued by the City of Baltimore for predatory lending practices. One of the largest holders of properties in Cleveland, Ohio in 2007, 2008 (and on track in 2009) where their predatory practices have reduced $80,000 homes to $3,000 shacks in neighborhoods that have become blighted due to the bank’s neglect to even provide fundamental maintenance for the HUNDREDS of houses they now own. Received 25 BILLION in government assistance, yet still cannot answer the phone and refuses to even attempt to negotiate with home owners. Known to ACORN workers as one of the worst banks out there.
Wells Fargo, predatory lender specializing in destroying home values throughout the US.
