Wells Fargo has reached a $3.7 billion deal with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to resolve allegations that it harmed more than 16 million people with deposit accounts, auto loans, and mortgages. According to the CFPB, the bank illegally assessed fees and interest charges on loans for cars and homes, leading some vehicles to be repossessed unlawfully.

The settlement with CFPB includes a $1.7 billion penalty and more than $2 billion in consumer restitution. For example, the bank has already paid $1.3 billion to 11 million customers with auto-loan service issues.
