Keller Rohrback Investigates Latest Wells Fargo Scandal: Customers Foreclosed on After Computer “Glitch”

December 17, 2018

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 17, 2018--Attorney Advertising. Wells Fargo recently sent letters to home mortgage customers apologizing for a “faulty calculation” that caused qualified borrowers, who were part of the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), to be improperly rejected or not offered a loan modification. Because of this glitch in Wells Fargo’s software program, hundreds of people unnecessarily lost their homes and may have had their credit scores negatively impacted.

Wells Fargo’s letters to customers say, “When you were considered for a loan modification, you weren’t approved, and now we realize that you should’ve been. We based our decisions on a faulty calculation, and we’re sorry. If it had been correct, you would have been approved for a trial modification.”

Keller Rohrback—a leading consumer protection law firm that was the first firm to bring a class action lawsuit against Wells Fargo over its practice of opening unauthorized deposit and credit accounts—is now investigating claims people who were affected by these modification denials may have against Wells Fargo.

“It appears that this ‘glitch’ caused tremendous hardship to hundreds of people, unnecessarily forcing them from their homes,” said Matthew Preusch, an attorney at Keller Rohrback L.L.P. “Wells Fargo needs to be held fully accountable for this alleged practice.”
