According to the lawsuit, throughout the Class Period defendants issued false and misleading statements to investors that Wells Fargo's cross-selling efforts to retail customers were the product of a carefully designed system that resulted in Wells Fargo illegally, through forgery and other electronic means, opening millions of deposit and credit card accounts for customers without their knowledge in an effort to generate fee income for Wells Fargo and compensation rewards for Wells Fargo employees, including defendants. Wells Fargo also failed to disclose that an ongoing internal investigation had determined by the beginning of the Class Period that employees in the Community Banking segment had engaged in a wide ranging scheme to inflate Wells Fargo's financial performance figures by opening millions of unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts, ultimately resulting in more than 5,000 employee terminations. As a result, defendants' statements about Wells Fargo's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
