Imagine this – the number of affected people far worse and the years of the search now go back to 2009 – same timing as foreclosure fraud.
More Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) customers may have been affected by a scandal over phony accounts than previously believed, the third-largest U.S. lender said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.
Wells Fargo had previously estimated that up to 2.1 million customers may have had checking and credit-card accounts opened in their names without their permission over a period of several years.
As part of an expanded review there could be “an increase in the identified number of potentially impacted customers,” Wells said.
