Wells Fargo was just fined $35 million by the Office the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today for allegations that the bank made unsafe or unsound sales practices. The bank was also ordered to make restitution to customers who were harmed by the unsound practices. These included the unauthorized opening of deposit or credit card accounts and the transfer of funds from authorized, existing accounts to unauthorized accounts.
