SCANDALOUS! HIGHWAY ROBBERY - Wells Fargo Falls Off The Wagon by Alan B. Jonas
SCANDALOUS! HIGHWAY ROBBERY - Wells Fargo Falls Off The Wagon details the high-pressure, shady practices in banking and their resulting massive fines, as Wells Fargo robbed thousands of customers by opening millions of unauthorized accounts they didn’t need or understand. The author hopes that readers will exercise caution rather than paying for bank services such as insurance and investments and also be wary of safe deposit boxes, which have few federal laws protecting them.
Praise for the Book:
“Impressively informative, exceptionally well written for the non-specialist general reader, thoughtful and thought-provoking, "Scandalous!: Highway Robbery - Wells Fargo Falls Off the Wagon" is an extraordinary read from beginning to end and should be considered essential reading for anyone engaging a bank in any kind of financial transaction. While especially and unreservedly recommended for community, college, and university library Money, Finance, Banks & Banking collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Scandalous!: Highway Robbery - Wells Fargo Falls Off the Wagon" is also readily available in a digital book format” - Michael Dunford - The Midwest Book Review
