The Wells Fargo sales tactics revealed by regulators in September were staggering in scope: 5,300 employees fired over the creation of as many as 2 million fake accounts between 20.
However, the whistleblower's letters, combined with testimony from other employees, suggest the shocking scandal could be even more massive and began years earlier than Wells Fargo has admitted.
According to the suit, trouble at the branch, located at 11 Arley Way, began last April during The Heritage golf tournament.
Branch employee Wendy Baxley showed Mark Stroud, the branch manager, and other employees a text message from Zardenetta that was forwarded to her.
The tellers were assured by Stroud that they could share the credits, the suit states.The bank, however, considered it unethical for the tellers who didn't meet in person with the interns to get credits, according to the suit.
