I went to get a late lunch at the local sandwich establishment. I Ordered the "Wolverine" with special sauce... When I went to pay and my trusty plastic came up as "invalid". Huh? "Can't be". I looked at the mag stripe on the back of the card thinking it was damaged. Nope. I went next door to an ATM. It came back with the recipt saying "20.00 requested" 0.00 dispensed....
I went back into the sandwich shop and said, "I am concerned that I don't want you to toss the perfectly made food be cause my card is not working"...
They had me sign an I.O.U. and I will pay them tomorrow for a sandwich today.
I might be underfunded, but I am not flat broke yet, so I called the sanehalf to give her a heads up.
me: "My card came back invalid, what's up with that?"
sanehalf; "thats wierd, crazy daughter had the samething happen this morning. I looked at her balance and my computer froze. I had to reboot it."
Crazy son has the same thing happen. Sanehalf walks over to the Wells Fargo branch in the grocery store...(she was going to pay using a debi card when I called her.) and inquires as to what is going on. It turns out that because my sanehalf deposited a bad check from one of her clients, Wells Fargo saw fit to Suspend all the accounts she was a signer on. Ya know the kids call and say help I need cash...or what ever, the sanehalf does the banking....(with 18 years in the industry, who am I to argue?)
Suspending those accounts affected everyone in the family. No they didn't call, they didn't write, they just acted like it was their money in our accounts. All accounts we have with Wells Fargo have positive balances and no overdraft activity.
"So what client passed a bad check", my sanehalf asks of the branch manager. He couldn't tell her. So the victim is the person getting screwed. Way to go Wells Fargo, you idiots.
Why did this happen? Because Moody's downgraded Wells Fargo and all of a sudden they are looking at loss prevention as a number one priority. Screwwwwwww the little guy.... I am going to Jimmy Stewart's local Savings and Loans this week and tell that Stage Coach to bite me. Has this happened to anyone else in the last few weeks? I can't be alone in this type of immoral banking activity.
