Wells Fargo in The News
The current scandal reports that Wells Fargo employees (approximately 5,300) have been opening unauthorized bank accounts and credit cards in their customers’ names in order to generated additional sales figures and revenues from fees. This has all been taking place since at least 2011. Over 2 million fake accounts have been opened to date. Record fines of over $180 million have been slapped against Wells Fargo due to the uncovering of this scandal. That being said it appears to be business as usual as the move forward past this.
Taking it back in history only slightly would be the other larger scandal due to acquisition of Wachovia. During the 2008 financial crisis, the US government sanctioned the buy of Wachovia Corp by Citigroup (aka. Citibank for retail clients), but Wells Fargo stepped in to the buy, citing a 7x larger valuation of Wachovia. This valuation nearly 4x the ROI for shareholders. Not longer after forcing their way into an acquisition over Citigroup, they found that Wachovia had been violating a number of procedural laws including failure to disclose a large amount of information and documentation to mortgage clients. No surprise amid the 2008 catastrophe. Millions of dollars in fines were issued, but Wells Fargo continued along yet again with business as usual.
Would An ATM Suit Your Current Needs?
Find an ATM near you and you can cut the wait at the teller line. Especially if you only have the need for some cash, you can get everything you need from an ATM. If you find one of the 13,000 Wells Fargo ATMs you can actually do even more, including pay your bills and make deposits. The options are also endless with online banking these days, don’t feel like you need to go into a branch for all your banking needs. Obviously though, sometimes it’s a lot less of a hassle to speak to a real person, peace of mind too.
