This was after the company had already been fined a total of $185 million. $100 million went to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, $50 million went to the Los Angeles City Attorney, and $35 million went to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The Senate Banking Committee did not levy further fines, but did recommend that Stumpf resign. (Wikipedia, 2017) John Stumpf did resign a month after the hearing. He was replaced by COO Timothy Sloan. In April 2017, the board activated a clawback provision in Stumpf’s contract to take back $28 million from his earnings. 5,300 employees were fired for their role in the account fraud. In March 2017, Wells Fargo spent a total of $110 million compensating the victims of the account fraud. (Wikipedia, 2017)
