Wells Fargo has admitted to charging several hundred thousand borrowers from 2012-2017 for auto insurance they didn’t ask for or want. As it turns out, the third-largest U.S. Bank issued fraudulent auto insurance premiums through their Collateral Protection Insurance Program that has impacted at least 570,000 customers. Besides being charged inflated premiums that weren’t justified, it has been alleged that customers were also illegally charged for delinquency charges and late fees, in addition to having some vehicles actually repossessed.
