Shares of Wells Fargo & Firm (NYSE:WFC) [Trend Analysis] swings enthusiastically in regular trading session, it an advance of 0.54% to close at $51.86. Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren criticized Wells Fargo & Co’s (WFC) decision to require consumers affected by its unauthorized accounts scandal to go through arbitration rather than allowing them to sue. The San Francisco-based bank last week asked a U.S. court to uphold contract clauses that mandate arbitration, something financial firms often use to protect against litigation.
Wells Fargo’s situation is unusual, though, because it opened accounts without consumers’ permission, calling into question whether the contracts and their clauses are legitimate. In a Facebook post on Monday, Warren, a frequent critic of the banking industry, stated Wells Fargo’s promise to treat consumers better in light of the scandal is “meaningless” as long as it is pursuing arbitration.
“Following dozens of Wells Fargo consumers sued the bank to recover fees they were charged from these fake accounts, Wells Fargo tried to boot the claims from court and into the closed-door, industry-friendly arbitration process,” Warren stated.
