What To Do So You Get the Best Customer Service Possible From Wells Fargo

  • We’d recommend using the Wells Fargo customer service channel that makes the most sense for your needs. For instance, visiting a branch in person is by far the best option if there’s a place near your location because it’s harder for a representative to turn a physical personal way than a name on the screen
  • Furthermore, make sure you use a channel that is dedicated to your problem if one exists. For instance, Wells Fargo has an online specific service number you can call. Do this first and you won’t be routed to the same department when you call the regular number for an online question
  • Be sure to have your Wells Fargo contact and identifying information at hand, especially your account number another bank details. The representative will ask for these at the beginning of the conversation
  • You should have a notepad and pen handy so you can record the above information and get the name and department number of the representative you are connected to
  • As you speak to the representative, try to remain calm and polite, even if things become frustrating or seem like they will escalate
  • If you need to, don’t hesitate to escalate the situation up a level and ask to speak to the representative’s manager or supervisor
  • Record everything you and the representatives say; you may need to refer back to these conversations if you try different customer service channel or things progress to court
