“Wells Nears $1 Billion Settlement,” The Wall Street Journal, April 20, 2018 B1.
Wells Fargo is about to be (has been) fined close to $1 billion for irregularities regarding auto loans, auto insurance, and mortgage loans. This is the civil side. This is in addition to the $185 million for the account cramming scandal in 2016, where the bank opened new accounts and credit cards that consumers did not request. The Chief Risk Officer is also retiring.
Once again, the shareholders pay mightily for the sins of (mis-)management.
