I made my small fortune market trending in mutual funds but that can't be done anymore.

Wells Fargo incentivized their employees to sign up their own customers with 1.5 million credit card accounts WITHOUT the consent of said customers. The gubment didn't force Wells Fargo to perpetrate this fraud. 5,300 Wells Fargo employees were fired but the executives in charge received huge compensation as their punishment.

I was heavily pressured to choose Profit Sharing rather than 401-K. I already knew that Profit Sharing did not pass the smell test having been a small business owner once before. Later I quit and they begged me to come back. I said I am moving back up to Ohio and will never look back to Georgia. I still have Georgia On My Mind.

I like the name Wells Fargo. It reminds me of old cowboy movies, but until some of the management goes to prison I can't imagine trusting them.
