Most Ineffective Wells Fargo Executive – Reetika Grewal

Progressive Strategy, Digital and Innovation?  EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY.


Does not return phone calls, provide solutions through email nor responds to LinkedIn messages.

At Wells Fargo I have a personal account, an account for my trust and a business account. Why wouldn’t Reetika Grewal Head of Digital at Wells Fargo help a 38 year-old customer (personal and business) that has deposited tens of millions of dollars into Wells Fargo?




Do I Need to Notify Wells Fargo When Travelling?

I followed Wells Fargo TravelPolicy with a Wells Fargo Representative.

Notify your card issuer about your travel plans, such as when and where you’re traveling – whether domestic or international, as well as the cards you’re taking with you. If you bank with Wells Fargo, sign on and add your travel plan online or from your mobile device.


Wells Fargo Head of Digital has an Unknown Transfer Limit Policy

Wells Fargo Head of Digital has an Unknown Transfer Limit Policy – Until You Try to Use it!

At no time did anyone at my local Tiburon Wells Fargo Branch mention anything about a “Transfer Limit” which I found out 3 days into my trip to Italy.

I am in Italy for a couple months so that I can buy an apartment but Reetika Grewal’s Progressive Strategy, Digital and Innovation policies at Wells Fargo does not allow me to access my funds.

To the right is the message I assume Well’ Fargo refers to as Digital & Innovation – $25K limit per day and $75K per 30 days.


Wells Fargo Executive Reetika Grewal Doesn’t Respond to LinkedIn


38 Year Customer Needs Help

Reetika Apologies for reaching out to you through LinkedIn but no one at the Tiburon Branch answers the phone and the 800 # is only to read a script.

I am a customer sine 1983 and have deposited millions of dollars into Wells Fargo. I am in Italy now trying to buy an apartment.

The issue is that a notice pop up on the “wire transfer” page of the Wells Fargo website that stated I can only transfer $75K every 30 days – this is not working for me.I transferred a significant amount of funds into my Wells Fargo account for the specific purpose to transfer to y Italian bank account – which I explained when I set up “My Travel Plan” with the Wells Fargo representative.

To my shock and astonishment the $75K wire limit popped up and the 30 day timeframe.Please don’t tell me a chose the wrong bank and have been loyal to WF for 38 years only for the bank to turn on me when I need them to release my money.

Why Doesn’t Wells Fargo’s Head of Digital, Reetika Grewal, respond to to LinkedIn?

BUYER BEWARE – DO NOT PURCHASE Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond


The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond Automatic Appliance – Promises to make fresh pasta in your kitchen in minutes. To be honest, it did, the first time I used The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond Automatic Appliance.

The issue is that I repeated the exact same process 3 more times and the machine failed to produce pasta – it simply stopped after the timer counted down to 0:00.

BAM, BAM, BAM. There it is folks, the machine does not work consistently!

The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond pasta machine mixed and kneaded the dough (the dough Amazon promotes (Antimo Caputo Chefs Flour Italian Double Zero 00 – Soft Wheat for Pizza Dough, Bread, & Pasta) that is frequently bought with the Pasta & Beyond Machine – which worked the first time I used the machine).

The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond pasta machine mixed and kneaded the dough on the 2nd, third and fourth atttempt but it would not extrude pasta – I opened a box of Cecco Penne Pasta to go with my home made sauce and meatballs (ground chuck, veal and pork).

The Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond pasta machine is NOT AS SIMPLE as adding your favorite ingredients to flour, egg, oil and it DOES NOT CONSISTENTLY produce fresh, perfectly shaped pasta.

Amazon Review – Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond Automatic Appliance

If you think making pasta is as easy as what you’ve see in in Emeril’s info commercial, think again. Sure, it is easy to add the flour, turn the machine on and then pour in the liquid mixture. But then comes the hard part; to figure out if you’ve gotten the combination of ingredients just right.

It’s a culinary test each time to know whether you have the right flour consistency.

Too much liquid, and you have wet sand that does not extrude.

Not enough liquid, and the mixture hardens and cakes around and inside the spindle and end cap.

And whether you’ve achieved this sweet spot is not known until after several minutes of mixing, and the selected type of pasta is supposed to come out. Or not, if the mixture is too dry.

There is also some experimentation in figuring out how long to cook the pasta.

Amazon Negative Review – Emeril Lagasse Pasta & Beyond Appliance

Be prepared to waste a few eggs and probably go back to packaged pasta.

Got this as a post Christmas gift for ourselves. Box had everything in it and easy to put together. Got through 1/2 of a batch and the controller board fried according to customer service. Sent back for refund and will stick with manual, crank pasta maker.

No excuse for selling this product given the number of negative reviews now.
