Wells Fargo will pay $142 million to settle a bevy of class-action lawsuits over the bank’s creation of unauthorized accounts.
If you think the San Francisco-based financial institution created sham accounts in your name, here’s what you need to know to get a piece of the settlement.
If you are, or were, a Wells Fargo customer between May 2002 and April of this year, and you believe the bank opened or applied for a checking account, savings account, credit card or line of credit without your permission you might get a tiny check in the mail.
The attorneys who are suing Wells Fargo are expected to get about $21 million. You’ll get $95.
