With the hammer finally coming down on countless former executives - add to it scandal after scandal, with no sign of a turnaround, it is over. Wells Fargo died years ago when Norwest bought them and decided to use the brand name. Wells Fargo is just a brand now for the old Norwest. It is right up there with Enron. Look for a likely complete rebranding in the coming year. No way they survive this without a complete image transformation. WF = WTF.

it is a horrible company, cheap too
Nope. Wells is still Too Big To Fail, and the average person is unaware of how awful we are.
The only people who are about our never-ending scandals are us current employees, former employees who were screwed-over by this bank, and folks who read the business section.
And the folks who read the business section don't care if we're good or evil, they just want to know if we're a buy or a sell.
Don't switch banks, join a credit union.
Amen glad the Norwest people and chainsaw charlie will do mass layoffs and sell off lines of businesses it feels good.
WF just did a high-priced “rebranding” this past year. At least that’s what they call their new, flat, stagecoach.
It’s going to take more than a color palette and photography style to save Wells Fargo’s rep.
