Washington Mutual Bank Fraud $1,100 in fees Northridge California
*Consumer Comment: Is the fraud you'll be reporting...
I wasn't shocked to find out that the internet is loaded with charges against Washington Mutual, with whole sites dedicated to tales of mismanagement, fraud, poor customer service, and corruption. Because my own experience was that no matter how much money I poured into my account to cover direct withdrawals, checks I had written prior to being informed that my wire was never recorded, and how much pleading, begging, and cajoling I did to right the course, WAMU dinged me with over 35 Paid, Returned, and Insufficient fund fees, 4th and 5th generation fees upon other fees. It was the avalanche of 'we are charging you for having no funds to cover the last time we charged you for having no funds for the last time we charged you.' You get the picture.
I was nickeled and dimed to the tune of $1,100 in fees that I had agreed to pay about half of when this scam first started in March. Now I am listed with the other scam that is Chexsystems for five years and my new bank, Union Bank of California has stopped my right to write checks and use my debt card.
I have sent an email to WAMU that I am hiring a lawyer and I will make it my mission to tell every person with a Myspace account, Facebook account, and on every site known to the net about these fraudulent business practices. The level of arrogance that I received from customer service was staggering. WAMU was willing to remove one or two charges out of a "courtesy" but most people passed the buck and couldn't help me. The "last line" manager, who admitted that he had the power to to settle this account, told me that I was a risk and that my years of being a good customer meant nothing in the "big picture."
So now it is an issue of principle. If I am going to be denied basic checking account privileges for five years, than I will do what I can over those five years to make sure that my voice, and the voices of millions of others who are getting screwed by arrogant corporations and their lack of ethics and decency, are heard! Wake not the sleeping wolf! When you push people far enough they will strike back for integrity sake and common decency. You will fall Washington Mutual! And fall hard!
