WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Thomas Curry, the Comptroller of the Currency, said on Tuesday that his agency is considering action against individual Wells Fargo executives after a customer fraud was detected at the bank.
"The OCC may take formal enforcement actions against institution-affiliated parties, including directors, officers, and employees, who violate any law or regulation, engage in unsafe or unsound practices, or breach fiduciary duty," Curry told a hearing of the Senate Banking Committee.
