Wells Fargo customers get others’ bank statements
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — An undetermined number of new Wells Fargo bank customers in South Carolina and Florida have received portions of other customers’ bank statements in the mail.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that bank spokesman Josh Dunn couldn’t say how many of the 487,000 households in South Carolina that now have Wells Fargo accounts were affected. Dunn also couldn’t confirm an estimate of 30,000 that a Wells Fargo employee gave to one South Carolina customer.
Dunn attributed the error to a single malfunctioning printer in Charlotte, N.C., which apparently put multiple customers’ account and transaction information on pages, or even single pages, of one statement.
Dunn wouldn’t say when the bank learned of the problem. The newspaper reported that people who contacted its reporters received the misprinted statements Wednesday afternoon.
