Narrative (may be redacted).

After defaulting on a home improvement loan from WellsFargo ( WF ), I entered into debt collection XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. It was arranged to deduct $ XXXX/month from my checking to pay the XXXX {$5000.00} remainding balance. As of XXXX 2015, I finished paying the debt with a remaining balance of {$210.00}. However, XXXX, for some reason, deducted {$400.00} from me in XXXX and XXXX.
After discovering the deductions, I called XXXX in late XXXX to ask what was happening. On the initial call, they claimed not to know. On subsequent calls, they noted an error and stated they were in touch with WF and would resolve the issue. At this time, I was still getting " bills '' from WF, stating my balance was at - {$800.00}, indicating to me, the balance was paid and sent to WF.
Come XX/XX/XXXX I still had not had the issue resolved XXXX. I spoke with managers XXXX XXXX and XXXX XXXX on numerous occasions to be told the issue was being handled and a check would be sent, and to call back early XX/XX/XXXX.
Come XXXX XXXX, no resolution. At this point, WF sent a new " bill '' saying I owed {$78.00} for lawyer fees and the prior - {$800.00} was gone due to " adjustment payments ''. I contacted WF directly to ask what was happening. WF claimed they were in contact XXXX, and the amount was ACTUALLY {$1200.00} THEY DEDUCTED FROM ME. WF also claimed they sent the money back XXXX. I emailed and called XXXX with this information and got this in return from XXXX XXXX - " I was able to talk to Wells Fargo Bank this afternoon. They asked that you communicate directly with them and for me to direct you to their office. They again gave me XXXX to give to you and they asked that you call them directly. I was also advised that they did not send any money back to our office. I am unsure where that part of the communication is coming from. Unfortunately this is all the information that I have. I hope you are able to speak to someone at Wells Fargo Bank that will be able to help you in regard to this matter. Thank you. " Since that email, sent on XXXX XXXX, I 've mainly been in contact with WF, but they are currently not being too responsive. When I called XXXX XXXX, they claimed they were still checking their accounts for the money and a resolution.
