I just did this a few months ago after Wells Fargo pulled an insane stunt on me. The day my family went on vacation they froze my account for two weeks. I spent my entire vacation begging, pleading, and fighting Wells Fargo. Zero help and zero sympathy from them. I closed all my accounts and my credit card with them (they couldn't have cared less) and went to Key Bank. Not a credit union, but I feel your Wells Fargo pain. There is something deeply wrong with that company.

No, he wasn't lying. Where we worked at the tile/granite shop was within walking distance of the strawberry fields, and there's no reason to think he was lying. There is a difference between the estimates you make sitting on your couch and real life involving real people. I did not pick the strawberries so I can't tell you exactly how its done or the profit margin or whatever, but I doubt he came up with this cockamamie story for fun every year. Also, there were plenty among us involved in the marijuana industry and zero shame surrounding it. No one would have cared if he was trimming christmas trees instead.
