I just got off the phone with a representative from Wells Fargo Financial. The man I spoke to from customer service must have been one of the rudest people I have encountered in a long time!
I was recalled to active duty and under the Servicemember's Civil Relief Act am entitled to an interest percentage drop if the obligation was entered prior to enlisting. Anyways, I mailed the paperwork (a letter explaining the situation, my orders, my enlistment contract) and certified/registered mailed it to their address that handles this in late August this year.
Since I hadn't heard anything by September and the delivery confirmation stated it was received in late August (even had the signature) I decided to call. The customer service representative said they must have not received it. I explained that it was certified and he told me to try to read the signature. Needless to say, we didn't come to an agreement and I resent the information, again certified and registered mail.
Fast forward to a month later. Today I decide to call since no changes have been reflected on my account. I speak to a gentleman and tell him this is the second time I have sent in this information which now clearly states it was received Sept 29th of this year. Since it's mid October, and I still hadn't heard anything, I wanted to speak to someone who could help. He was possibly the rudest customer service representative I have encountered. He told me it hadn't been 30 days and they had not received anything. He verified that the address I was sending it to was correct and said to resend. I told him I wanted to speak to the dept that handles it since obviously someone was signing for this and nothing was being noted into the account and he said no one could help me.
I finally asked to speak to his supervisor and he said no one could help me. He told me that I couldn't count since it hadn't been the thirty days so no one could help me. I reiterated to him that this was my second attempt at sending this information but he was too busy telling me to just mail it again that he failed to realize that I have two receipts that state this was received by Wells Fargo. He was so rude - why work in customer service with that attitude? It reflects extremely poorly on Wells Fargo to hire such incompetent people.
Finally he patches me through to supposedly his supervisor which was actually cordial however said I would have to mail the paperwork again and to certify it (obviously this method has yet to work). I told him I would humor him and send it in again, however, I wanted a point of contact so that if this is not received once again, I can speak to someone to fix this issue. He said to call back customer service.
I am extremely upset with the way Wells Fargo is treating me and this situation. I've served my country to nine years now and Congress and our President have put this Act in place to help us. It is a shame that companies like Wells Fargo do everything they can to not comply.
Do NOT bank with Wells Fargo Financial!
