The investigation comes at an already sensitive time for Wells Fargo. Just a few months ago, the bank released an ad called “Earning Back Your Trust” in response to a sales-practices scandal in 2016 in which it was revealed that Wells Fargo employees had opened as many as two million fraudulent deposit and credit-card accounts, resulting in a $185 million fine for the bank. Maybe that’s why the rebuilding company is cracking down so hard on these bankers trying to sneakily eat on the company dime? The investigation in ongoing.
