Wells Fargo is continuing to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. In its quarterly filing with the SEC, Wells Fargo revealed that a computer error may have led to the bank foreclosing on up to 400 homes.
The computer error allegedly caused Wells Fargo to deny mortgage modifications to 625 of its customers, even though they qualified for the program. And 400 of those customers eventually lost their homes. Wells Fargo says it has set aside $8 million to compensate the customers who lost their homes due to the error, and to settle with government agencies.
Wells Fargo Fined Billions for Misconduct
Since 2016, the bank has incurred more than $3 billion in fines for various wrongdoings, including fraudulently opening accounts, improper trading, charging customers improper fees and misrepresenting the value of its mortgages.
“Unfortunately, the bad news about this bank’s practices continues to mount. Consumers deserve much better from their trusted financial institutions,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
