Misdirected texts from bank driving me BONKERS!
This is mostly a vent.
Some bonehead gave my phone number to Wells Fargo and signed up for account updates via text. So now I get text messages, frequently sent between 3:00 and 5:00 a.m., on the average of 4-6 per week.
I have an elderly mother across the country -- I don't want to turn off my phone. Actually, I don't want to be the one that has to do ANYTHING -- it's not my mistake! I have called numerous times but they seem totally incapable of figuring out how to stop this.
I work in marketing and I kind of understand -- do-not-call lists do not generally apply to customers, and for good reason. I am on the national do-not-call list but appreciate that I could sign up for certain types of calls without being deleted from the list. But I am NOT a Wells Fargo customer, so their rules about customer data are inappropriate in this situation.
I am thinking of trotting out the "my lawyer will be contacting you" speech, or sending my story to the consumer advocate at a local TV station. Any other ideas?
