I used Wells Fargo Home Mortgage (WF) in Lancaster PA, for approving a loan in 2016. The WF personnel promised a secured loan, but that eventually got rejected two days before closing day over cash gift. Something that I thought a WF personnel should know ahead and avoid this rejection so close to closing day.
Until May 2018, I decided to contact WF to request compensation for their employee's incompetence. I talked to a customer service rep over the phone several times. In mid June, they finally declined the request, and told me all they will do is sending me a detailed report of my case.
More than two weeks later, I did not receive any letter from WF. I called the same customer service rep. He said the letter was sent to an address in Laurel, MD. I have never been to Laurel MD, and have never seen that address. WF basically sent all my private information (perhaps even on purpose) to random people.
Until now, I still have not received the report they promised.
So, I would like to know if I can sue them for leaking my private information to random people, or more.
Yes, you can sue them, but you won't win any money because you have not established if, or how, this injured you. Thus, you have no damages.
Although you can file suit, the only thing you are going to get is large legal fees and a major headache. Use AVVO's Find a Lawyer tool to select a qualified attorney. Good luck.
