Fallout: Wells Fargo Bank Scandal. How many heads should roll because of the widespread deceit on the part of Wells Fargo employees who created faux new accounts from their regular customer base, and hit those customers with fees, so that sales goals and bonuses for setting up new accounts could be met.

The woman who oversaw these accounts left the bank in June with $125 M in stock options and compensation. http://fortune.com/2016/09/12/wells-fargo- cfpb-carrie-tolstedt/ Discuss
