WASHINGTON — The Department of Justice will sue Wells Fargo bank for preying on African American borrowers and giving them high cost sub prime loans.
The Huffington Post reports:
In an April 5 report to Congress, Perez’s unit said that some of these investigations would lead to lawsuits or settlements this year.
“We’re a majority African American community, and there are people in this city who take great offense when institutions take advantage of a community’s historical lack of access to credit, and in some cases lack of sophistication, by putting them in loans they can’t afford,” said George Nilson, Baltimore’s city solicitor. “It’s offensive behavior and we shouldn’t tolerate it.”
