My Very Own Personal Bank Story! Super Excited!!! After reading all of the bank stories lately (which I have to say has provided a lot of hopium at times of great need for me and many here I’m sure of that) I decided to go to Wells Fargo yesterday to see if I could personally validate anything that’s been talked about these days.
That being said, here is my story and I have to tell you that I am still in AWE and a bit SHOCKED at what took placed… Here it goes.
Sorry, it’s a bit long but wanted to share with each of you exactly what took place.
I always drive-by the same Wells Fargo bank (Orange County area, CA.) whenever I go home for lunch so I decided yesterday 11/10/2014, what the heck, time to go in.
As I walked through the main door, I was greeted by a gentleman in a suit and he kindly asked me, “Sir, how may I help you?” I said, I am here to talk with a Wealth Adviser?
He said, “Can I ask what in particular do you want to meet with them about?”
I said, I had a lot of foreign currencies and that I wanted to talk with a Wealth Advisor about exchanging them at Wells Fargo and also wanted to know about what services they can offer me.
He said “just a moment Sir and I will be right back.”
He went out of sight for a bit and then came back and said, “Mrs. XXXX will see you in a few minutes.
Please have a seat and she will be right with you.”
A few minutes went by and the gentleman came back and said “Mrs. XXXX will see you now, please come with me Sir.”
I was taken to her office and Mrs. XXXX asked me “how may I help you?” I told her that I was expecting a large amount of money any day now by way of foreign currencies and that I wanted to talk with a Wealth Advisor about exchanging them, opening up an account and wanted to see what services Well Fargo can offer me.
She said she was the Financial Advisor for this bank and 12 others and that she is also the Wealth/Bank Advisor and that she could help me. She then asked what currencies I held and I said the Dong and others.
She said that she rarely deals with foreign currencies but would call the main Wells Fargo Corporate Currency number (back East) to find out more information for me if I’d like and I said that would be great.
So she dials the number and starts to talk with someone on the other end. She then turns to me while on the phone and asks, “What currencies do you currently have?”
I then told her the Dinar and Dong.
She then communicates that back to the person on the line and talks for about another couple of minutes or so and then hangs-up.
She then turns to me and says, “he (I guess the person on the other line was a guy) told me that he recently heard that Wells Fargo was selected as the exchange center for the Dinar but since it hasn't revalued yet they weren't able to do any exchanges until it does.
(I just about Sh*t my pants at that moment!) I tried to contain my emotions and calmly told her that I was also aware of that information and asked her to call my cell phone once she has more information for me.
As I got up to leave her office she smiled at me and said that her Dad also owns Dinar.
I told her to make sure he doesn't let it out of his site, I smiled and then walked out while trying to contain all of my excitement.
Well I have to tell you all that I never excepted anything from going to Wells Fargo (that way I wouldn't be disappointed) but deep down inside I was sure hoping to get something that I could personally confirm, anything!
Well, to say the least, I am still in AWE and a bit SHOCKED and believe 100% this is for real and that Tony and DC are SPOT ON!!!!
Welcome to the club, my WF in AZ is on the same page.
Yes Wells Fargo Wealth Managers are becoming more open about the currencies and more than likely the ones in the know are quite amiable and seemingly quite open to discussing the future. So far my experiences have been quite in alignment with the coming events.
