Wells Fargo & Company disclosed on September 7, 2016, that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had fined the company $100 million for secretly opening over 2 million unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts since 2011 in order to meet performance goals.   Wells Fargo’s conduct has also resulted in millions in refunds to affected customers, the initiation of other governmental investigations and sanctions,  lawsuits by former employees alleging they were wrongfully terminated, and securities fraud, class action lawsuits.

Finkelstein Thompson LLP is investigating whether certain officers and directors of Wells Fargo & Company breached their fiduciary duties or committed other violations of law in failing to supervise or maintain adequate internal controls to prevent or to timely discover the opening of the unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts.
