There is an exception process through (FDIC I think); but it can take up to a year to get someone cleared.
Just goes to show that your mistakes follow you for your entire life!
Lesson for the young people out there.
Hey idiots in Congress and all over D.C. Make the same rules for yourselves and your staffers !!!!
And consider takes our money for fraudulent spending as theft. All of you are fired.
What I’ve learned from this story is that there’s no room for repentence and having paid your dues in the liberal mindset.
Did you really think we want those laws observed? said Dr. Ferris. We want them to be broken. Youd better get it straight that its not a bunch of boy scouts youre up against... Were after power and we mean it... Theres no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there arent enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? Whats there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now thats the system, Mr. Reardon, thats the game, and once you understand it, youll be much easier to deal with. (Atlas Shrugged 1957)
Makes no sense there must be more to the story.
I guess it’s good that bankers should have more integrity than politicians. Still it seems so flagrantly hypocritical that said politicians are the ones ordering them to do to... one gets the idea this is clearly something that Wells Fargo did not want.
He’s 68 and is approaching retirement. His insurance rates are going to rise, too. They’ll fire this guy and hire a 20 something bonehead for half his wages and benefits.
No more to the story. New regulations require finger prints and back ground checks for everyone. This was not required before; at least the finger prints. There was some background check done, but not this extensive.
It started about 2 years ago; some well qualified long term employees have been cut loose.
Any conviction, no matter how old or small, will require the bank to immediately fire someone. No wiggle room.
It’s insanity brought on by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.
Aside from the obvious stupidity of this over reaction, this man should take out an ad:
“Is there ANYBODY in Wells Fargo management who is willing to publicly assert that THEY are not guilty of a more grievous behavior, at any time in their adult life?”
The Injuns done raided the Wells Fargo wagon.
Well, you can’t be too careful. Before you know it someone might run a cardboard cutout of a man for President.
Doesn’t surprise me that this is in Des Moines. West Des Moines and Des Moines have thousands of Wells Fargo employees.
Wonder if he will get his retirement? Wells Fargo is probably going to screw him out of that...
So why can’t we do the same thing for all of our politicians?
His 401K would not be an issue, assuming he put something in it.
There is no lesson here other than that in this country you cannot live down a mistake made so long ago. Well a possible lesson is that the system will screw you out of your retirement any chance it gets.
Whats the law behind this? For reference in future debates.
Um, this is craziness.
“What Ive learned from this story is that theres no room for repentence and having paid your dues in the liberal mindset.”
The fact that this man lost his job is just plain evil!
This termination, and the law which compelled it must be challenged to a legal fight.
Sadly, Wells Fargo dare not stand up for their loyal employee, lest the federal bureaucrats descend upon them to harass their people and eat out their substance.
what are the odds that a teen who put a slug in a coin laundry (and nothing more) will cheat and euchre someone out of their mortgage. it ought to be left up to the bank, as they’re the ones responsible for any employee’s misbehavior anyhow.
“The Injuns done raided the Wells Fargo wagon.”
And walked away with a scalp!
This I think:
In other areas, little has changed--in 1963, a Castro ruled Cuba and a Brown governed California.
No, twenty somethings are paying the price for the boneheads in power, you see baby boomers are the ones in power, they make the decisions and the laws, they love to stick it to subsequent generations of a country they hate, thanks Bawney Fwank, stretch Pelosi, dingle berry Reid, and Obamagumba, you and your ilk have destroyed a great nation not only for yourselves but your kids and their kids too!
They'll be held more than responsible -- they'll be economically punished severely by a jury if this man victimizes anyone while on the job.
If you knowingly employ a con and that con victimizes someone connected with the work he's employed to do, it's likely the business will be held financially responsible.
That’s not a JACKAL you nitwits.
I fired Wells Fargo along time ago. The called me and told me my loan payment was late. The loan had been paid off for 5 years.
Jeeze, if anyone knew how I dealt with coin-op machines in my yute, I’d still be in jail.
I like how this guy gets fired, but Corzine is still walking around a free man.
We should have severe punishments for financial fraud and political corruption! How Corzine sleeps at night is beyond me, I bet he is tucked in by Holder himself, Corzine is a thief and should be in jail, a real jail!
When I was in college, there was a dryer in the dorm that ran all the time, with no coins needed. It would stop only if the door was opened. We called it the “eternal dryer”.
TSA doesn’t do background checks. Funny, ain’t it.
So when the nuns told us some school transgression was going on our permanent records, they were going to send them to future employers? Then I'm sunk. At least I would have been sunk...I retired last year. Maybe they'll put a crimp in my ss benefits.
The Dodd/Frank Banking Reform Act...or some such.
Meanwhile, Bill Ayers works with public schools as an academic after being exposed as a Communist agent working in support of the North Vietnamese military in a time of war engaging in naked treason and terrorist activity.
Also, the Democrat Party believes that felons should have the right to vote but even non-violent felons should NOT have the the right to self-defense.
Liberalism is a mental disorder
Liberals want felons to vote (democrat) but do not believe they are entitled to the right to bear arms (even for non-violent offenses).
Which does not negate in the slightest the principle that it should not be government ordering how a bank ought to handle that risk. The bank should be able to choose freely.
