It's like pulling teeth for us "mere mortals" to get a loan from Wells to do anything. I'm not talking about for extravagances either - I'm talking basic auto loans and small business loans to survive. But if you have $50 million or more? The world is your oyster because times are so hard for you, we have to make sure you are well taken care of. I'm glad our tax dollars fund banks like Wells because they have it SO HARD.

Wells is trying to be too many things to too many people. This usually does not work well.

I sure hope that the added stress of this service is not too much for these poor souls to handle. The recession has been hardest on the multi-millionaire. You know all the decisions. Where do I shelter my money? How many to layoff on Christmas Eve? Meantime Wells Fargo wants to charge me more to use what little money I have left. God bless America!

It looks like the days of undocumented fees and unnecessary and misleading charges on bank accounts continues. Oh, wait, that was last month they took care of it, that's right. Really?? Make sure you check your bank statements from Wells Fargo... Or better yet, close the old free checking account that you've had there for the past 10 years (and make sure you have them remove the $7 charge they put on your account last month).

I don't make $1 million or $50 million, so I really don't care. I wish these people would pay the same taxes as the rest of us though.

Sorry Wells Fargo, but I am a little down on my luck right now.

People who are/were smart enough to make 50 mill are not dumb enough to bank with WF. Nice try.

Got $50 million? Why don't you and a few friends build a Vikings stadium to rent out to Wilf's Vikings? There's an investment that will keep on earning.

So WF's first response to the Occupy movement is to make a public display of new services for The One Percent? Marketing genius!
