Edit: Is Wells Fargo only bank bully?

The government has been holding Wells Fargo's feet to the fire following a recent scandal relating to fake accounts. We hope they don't let up. Bank employees opened as many as 2 million unauthorized checking and credit card accounts for unsuspecting customers due to an aggressive sales culture that pushed them to meet lofty sales targets, or else face the risk of getting fired. A Consumer Financial Protection Bureau investigation into the bank's practices led to the bureau settling with Wells Fargo for $185 million. Politicians don't think that's enough/Anthony Kuipers, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
