The New York Times: Whistleblowers - Wells Fargo


The California attorney general is weighing a criminal investigation against Wells Fargo for illegal identity theft in its improper account opening scandal. We are live with Cindy Franklin, the homeowner who refused to let Wells Fargo illegally foreclose on her home and who filed suit and uncovered forgeries in her loan files. She's not the traditional whistleblower, but she blew the whistle on the bank in court. She and her lawyer, Linda Tirelli, join NYT financial columnist Gretchen Morgenson to discuss the twists and turns life takes when you blow the whistle on a major corporation. If you have your own whistleblowing story, share it in the comments or email gretchen@nytimes.com.
