cv91915 has set up a Go Fund Me page to take donations that will be used for flowers for breeze's memorial, and excess will be donated to a cancer charity in breeze's name.  If you'd like to participate, please go here:  https://www.gofundme.com/breeze-memorial .  If you have any questions about donating or the GFM, please reach out to cv91915.  
Sunday, unexpectedly, we lost one of our own.  After a sudden diagnosis of liver cancer just two days before, our very own mama Breeze lost her battle with this disease and passed away on Sunday afternoon.   She passed peacefully surrounded by her family.
We know that many of you will be as devastated as we are to learn of this, and we know that you will share in our grief.  We will be in the Feedback forum with you, sharing our memories and our tears.  We encourage you to join us there.
We started on this journey fifteen years ago - breeze, Pam, LKH, and radi8.  Through everything that has transpired over the past fifteen years, we have always remained family - and Mama breeze was an integral part of that family.  We will be posting additional information here, as much as we can while still respecting her desire for privacy and anonymity.  For now, while we process our grief, we will close this notice with Godspeed, Mama.  We miss you so much already.

Wells Fargo account approved with entries on EWS and Chex

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to post my experience. I have multiple entries on my Chex and EWS. Some paid, some showing unpaid. One of those entries on my EWS was a $300 charge off from a prior Wells Fargo checking account that was overdrawn and closed from 2016. About 6 months ago, I went in to Wells Fargo to apply for a new account. I was declined. The rep said if I paid off my prior WF balance and waited a couple weeks the system should approve me. Since I had the cash on me, i decided to pay it off in full right then and there.


Fast forward to now, couple weeks ago I decide to go into a Wells Fargo (different branch) and apply for checking to see what happens, I wasn't expecting much. Instantly approved for any checking account of my choice. Received debit card instantly and made $1500 deposit.


So far so good. It seems from everything I have researched combined with my own experience that WF will open an account if your EWS entries are at least 1 year old and if you paid any charged off overdraft amount that you owed to WF and let if update on your EWS. They did not pull my Chex from what I can see. My 3 bureaus were frozen, though I do hear they try to pull one of those automatically at time of checking opening to pre-qualify you for any credit products.


I am in California.

Thanks for posting. WF is trying to rebuild their customer base after the recent legal problems.

They certainly are trying yes. Their customer service seems to have improved since a couple of years ago. Also I just received my $200 "new customer bonus" in my account after my first direct deposit (which was actually just an electronic transfer from my CU acct.)
