SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Notifies Investors of Class Action Against Wells Fargo & Company (WFC) & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: April 16, 2018

NEW YORK, March 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Wells Fargo & Company (“Wells Fargo” or the “Company”) (NYSE:WFC)  and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired Wells Fargo securities between January 13, 2017 and July 27, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/wfc.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Wells Fargo had charged more than 800,000 customers for unneeded auto insurance, the expense of which pushed approximately 274,000 Wells Fargo customers into delinquency and resulted in almost 25,000 vehicle repossessions; (2) the foregoing conduct, when it came to light, would foreseeably subject Wells Fargo to heightened regulatory scrutiny and/or enforcement actions; and (3) as a result, Wells Fargo’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On September 8, 2016, the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau published a Consent Order with a Stipulation to its entry signed by Mary Mack, Executive Vice President of Wells Fargo Bank, detailing fraudulent practices at the Company, which were centered on a corporate culture intent on growing its cross-selling opportunities and unlawfully and without its customers’ consent opening millions of unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts, and imposing a fine of more than $185 million.

On July 27, 2017, post-market, The New York Times published an article entitled “Wells Fargo Forced Unwanted Auto Insurance on Borrowers.”  Citing an internal report prepared for Wells Fargo’s executives, the article reported that “[m]ore than 800,000 people who took out car loans from Wells Fargo were charged for auto insurance they did not need,” that “[t]he expense of the unneeded insurance . . . pushed roughly 274,000 Wells Fargo customers into delinquency and resulted in almost 25,000 wrongful vehicle repossessions,” and “that the bank owed $73 million to wronged customers.” Following publication of this article, Wells Fargo stock dropped $1.41 per share, or 2.58%, to close at $53.30 on July 28, 2017.
