Businesses Breaking Ties with Wells Fargo


In light of the past month’s unsavory news highlighting Wells Fargo’s unscrupulous business practices, many consumers are closing their accounts. But what about businesses that bank with, have revolving lines of credit, or use invoice factoring services with Wells Fargo? It’s too early to tell the full effect this scandal will have on the country’s second largest bank. We encourage businesses to become less dependent on big banks for business financing; here’s why.

Millions of Dollars Not Helping Businesses

We all witnessed Senator Elizabeth Warren lambaste Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf and demand his resignation, which finally came. The bank was fined $185 million and may be in violation of federal racketeering laws; the issue has been referred to the Department of Justice for further investigation. While Stumpf forfeits a $41 million dollar clawback, he still walks away with a $400 million bonus. The Wells Fargo customers were refunded $2.6 million in fees. All the while, Wells Fargo has been acquiring GE Capital’s domestic and international assets.
