What can you do?

The best thing you can do yourself is


Encourage your friends and family to avoid this bank. Consider giving your bank business to a local credit union or regional bank.

More options:

File a Better Business Bureau complaint. Every branch of WF has a BBB report. You can find the one for your local branch here, http://search.bbb.org/

All Wells Fargo Mortgage complaints are handled by the BBB in Des Moines. Their website is www.desmoines.bbb.org and their phone number is 515-243-8137.

The U.S. Treasury has established a site to help consumers file complaints for national banks. It is at HelpWithMyBank.Gov.

Your state Attorney General's office is a good place to file a complaint. The process varies by state, and most state AGs have websites with more information. Just search Google for <state name> Attorney General.

Complaining to the authorities should only be done if you have valid proof of illegal practicies. This is serious. Please think before submitting a complaint to the FTC, and don't just do so out of anger. If you have true proof of their illegal activities, you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Finally, if you feel Wells Fargo owes you money, you can file a civil lawsuit against them in a court of law. It's best to contact a lawyer to proceed here.

Wells Fargo has a large legal team of their own, so be prepared to have the case dragged out as long as they possibly can manage.
