LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - The bank Wells Fargo is now saying that more customers were affected by its fake account scandal.
Initially the company said that 2.1 million customers were affected by accounts opened by employees without customer’s consent.
After reports surfaced suggestion the problem extended further back than 2011, Wells Fargo reached back an additional two years.
Now Wells Fargo says that 3.5 million customers were affected by the scandal which is far more than what the bank originally estimated.
The bank plans to give more than $900,000 in refunds to those who were affected.
