A lawsuit recently filed against Wells Fargo insist the bank charged auto loan customers for unnecessary insurance.

Wells Fargo & Co. said on Thursday it resolved an internal processing error that resulted in customers' online bill payments being processed twice. The CFPB slapped the bank with the fine - the largest it has ever levied - after finding these practices were rampant throughout Wells Fargo since 2011. It apparently was limited to payments designated for automatic bill payment.

Wells Fargo has 260 branches in Pennsylvania including branches in the Camp Hill, Carlisle, Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mechanicsburg, Middletown, Palmyra and York areas, according to its website.
