Wells Fargo Denied Me The Use Of My Debit Card To Buy Multiple Quantities Of Gold
About two weeks ago, I attempted to buy several quantities of gold with my Wells Fargo debit card. I was advised by the service provider that I was only allowed to make a single item purchase. I responded by saying that I had more than enough in my account to cover several pieces of gold.
Subsequently, I telephoned Wells Fargo and inquired as to the reason for the denial and they could not give me an explanation other than I wasn't allowed to use the card for more than $2,000.00.
The following day I visited my local Wells Fargo bank and asked to speak with the manager about the problem. The manager told me whenever there are too many transactions in one day, the system sends out a red flag, as there had been numerous cards that had been compromised.
I advised the manager that there was no logical reason to deny me, the customer additional purchases if there is sufficient funds in my account..
He then apologized for any inconvenience and promised to rectify the issue after I had threatened to close my account with them...
