Apparently, pretty damned far.
I used to bank at Wells-Fargo, because they gobbled up the honest bank that gobbled up the honest bank where I had an account. I must admit that I put off changing banks too long, because doing so is an annoying and laborious task, but, really, one can only take so much.
The straw that broke this camel’s back was the story about Wells employees’ creating phony accounts to meet draconian sales quotas. I remember that, when I called up the outfit that handles my pension to change my direct deposit, the fellow on the other end of the call said, “We’ve been getting lots of calls from persons who have changed from Wells-Fargo.”
I filled him in on the news. He was
aghast somewhat taken aback at Wells’s conduct.
I notice that, in the Sunday New York Times, Wells has been running full-page ads about how they have changed.
Color me skeptical.
