I went into Wells Fargo last week and asked one of the bankers to close my superfluous checking account. The guy typed on his keyboard and said the account was closed, and furthermore he refunded my last three monthly service fees.
But how do I know the checking account is really closed? It still shows up on the "overview" page for my accounts. It refuses to disappear. Am I going to have to wait a month to see if I get charged yet another service fee?
