Dennis Singleton was a soldier preparing to go to Afghanistan in 2013 when he found out from his former wife that Wells Fargo had repossessed their car in North Carolina.
“I said, ‘Hey, they can’t do that!'” he recalled, in an interview with CNNMoney.
He was right. They can’t do that. It’s against the law. But they did it anyway.
Singleton, who serves in the North Carolina National Guard, is one of many service members whose cars were illegally repossessed by Wells Fargo (), according to the Department of Justice.
