Diffrent names, same companies?

Submitted by mray on Tue, 05/15/2007 - 13:30

I'm helping out my parents close many of their open, yet dormant accounts. My mom especially has about four different accounts with similar "Account Names" on her CR. They are:

I tried to do an internet search, but could only come up with some very vague contact information for one of the companies...are they all the same, or is that too simple an answer? Any suggestions?

I'm thinking those are all Wells Fargo accounts. Perhaps a good place to start would be a local branch.

Thanks, I'll let her know to try there first. :) I was thinking they were all a part of the WFNNB Corp. But all of her cards within that spectrum are accounted for on the CR.

Have you tried the bbb.org, what is it listed as on their credit report? They should be spelled out there. goodluck, I hope you find the information that you are looking for.

It's on my report as well. Except it's paired with WFFNATLBNK BEALS. And Beals was a department store card I applied for and never used.

bbb.org will also give you other names and acronyms used by the company, go there and see what you can find.

the better business bureau is a great resource for people trying to find out information on companies, you can also file a complaint there too.

They have a resource library that has that offers alot of good information also, like buying a used car and returning items, and many, many more topics. If you are looking for it, it is probably there somewhere.

Hi Guest,

If it is reflecting in your report with Beals that suggests that it has been reported from that company whose card you never used. If you have not used the card try and dispute it with the bureau where its reflecting. Call up the organization and try to find out how they have reported when you never used the card. They must have charged the monthly fees which you were liable to pay. Please keep us updated.

I am trying to find out who "WF FIN BANK WFFNB" is: on 8/23; 8/30; 9/14; & 9/17 someone tried to withdraw money from my son's account of $75.00 for the first three and purchase on 9/17 of $146.68 through this bank. Luckly, my son did not have money in his account and I am a joint owner so who has to dish out $89.20 for fees? By the way, we had his account closed. Can anyone help me?

Hi lady in NM,

Can I know if it's WF FIN BANK WFFNB or WF FIN BANK WFNNB? If it's WFNNB then it is the World Financial Network National Bank. If your son did not have any dealings with the bank, I think you need to close down this account and file a police complaint. You should also alert the bank with which your son has this account.

Each month the total $78.21 is taken from the bank. This has been happening since July 12th from my deceased sister's account. Please tell me what this is for. Thank you

Lady in NM, the EXACT same thing has happened to me. I just saw an apparent 'debit' charge on my checking account from them for 40.01, I called my bank, they said they couldn't see who it was from any more than I could on my online statement, and cancelled my cards for me submitting it to be investigated. I just looked on my account and out of curiosity searched to see if there were any previous charges from them, thinking maybe it was a bill or something I paid and am just not remembering (highly unlikely, I almost never pay bills with 'debit') and they got me back in April for $40.01 also!! Who ARE these people?!? And how did they get our info?? Does anyone know?
It's: wf fin bank wffnb, and that's all there is for a description.

A Wells Fargo company and possibly a preditor. Showed up on my credit report as never used but was dinged (lost points) when I made them close it. I would NEVER do business w/ WF...look them up on legal websites.

I have been with Lexington firm for over 4 months and paying 99 dollars monthly but they have not been able to remove any negative and nothing good has been done so far. I realized that Lexington firm has been wasting my time and money after Ghost Virus threw more light on how credit repair works and maximum time it can be fixed. I got his number from a website +1 205 418 0498 I texted him and we discussed the process. I had a low score of 550 and 8 negatives all together including student’s loan, within 12 working days he fixed all of it and raised my score to exactly 796. I strongly recommend Ghostvirus7890@gmail.com for any credit related issue Chex system and DUI report as well.
