(KRON)—Wells Fargo agreed to pay $50 million in a new settlement.

This time, the San Francisco based company is accused of overcharging homeowners for appraisal fees.

Those fees are typically 30-dollars or less, but Wells Fargo was charging at least three times that amount.

The fees were oftentimes listed as ‘other charges.’

This news comes almost two months after another major scandal at the company.

Bank employees opened millions of phony accounts without customers’ permission in order to boost their sales numbers.
