According to The Penny Hoarder, this new offer is a way for the company to make amends after last year’s scandal. The scandal involved thousands of bank employees secretly opening millions of phony bank and credit card accounts. As a result, Wells Fargo fired over 5,000 employees associated with the scandal and agreed to pay the penalty fee of $185 million with $5 million refunded to customers.
