A Florida woman launched a class-action lawsuit against Wells Fargo Bank after employees created millions of fraudulent accounts nationwide.
Brandon resident Nadine Stanton is suing on behalf of herself and others affected by the fraudulent accounts created by employees of the California-based banking giant. Stanton is a practice manager at United Vein Centers.
Stanton is claiming to be one of thousands of victims of the bank’s “colossal scheme” where they broke the law in numerous ways including using private information and data without consent.
Without permission of customers, employees performed several unauthorized tasks — opened accounts, transferred funds, applied for credit cards, received debit cards, and enrolled in online banking services.
