Wells Fargo Dealer Services Wells Fargo Bank Still Being Shady Nationwide
*Consumer Comment: Payoff letter
Have you seen the pathetically apologetic ads from Wells Fargo trying to regain everyone's trust after being caught engaging in a number of illegal and shifty business practices? Think they've changed?
Um... No. I've had an auto loan with them for 3 years now. Here are the some of the practices they engage in to maximize interest earnings from their auto loan customers: 1. They limit the number of payments you can make in a given time period. They want to be paid back; but not too soon. 2. I have a about a $7,000.00 payoff on my loan. If I wanted to pay off my loan today, I cannot do so online or over the phone. Their message is: "Your payoff amount exceeds the amount allowable for online payment". Why? Well; as they make clear if you are then going to submit payment by the only means allowable: Snail Mail... They ask you to calculate the interest to allow for the time that will elapse while your payment is in transit, and to allow time for them to process the payment.
Now: What do you think happens if you do not include extra for that accruing interest? They will send you a bill for that residual amount, of course! ...and what do you think will happen if they drag their feet on getting you that residual bill? Even MORE interest will acrue.
See what I'm getting at? Wells Fargo hasn't changed at all, and they deserve NO ONE'S trust.
Finance elsewhere. I'm going to re-fi with a credit union next week.
