Wells Fargo froze my assets this week. I tried to subscribe to Mark an architecture magazine from Frame a publisher in The Netherlands, and apparently Wells Fargo didn’t like that idea. So they stopped making all my automatic payments to my cell phone carrier, the electric company, my web hosting company, and so on. In the past decade Wells Fargo has suspected that my account has been compromised a couple of times. But on those past occasions, Wells Fargo called to alert me. Apparently they no longer find it necessary to tell you that they’re blocking all of your funds. They just let your purchases at grocery stores and gas stations be declined and let you contact Wells Fargo.
