Wells Fargo controversy deepens as IL withdraws funding

In North Carolina, the office of State Treasurer Janet Cowell said it's monitoring the situation and studying "whether Wells Fargo's past business practices had any effect on North Carolina government accounts".

Late Monday, Wells Fargo spokesman Gabriel Boehmer disputed the impact of the state's decision.

In a CNBC interview Monday, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said his bank has received information requests from various agencies in the wake of the Wells Fargo controversy, saying when someone "does something wrong in the industry everyone gets request from everybody else". Wells Fargo takes a cut, but the state does not write the bank a check, he said.

"The specter of a lawsuit tends to bring about reforms", she said. For example, a new dentist who borrows from a bank to buy a practice may then need other services that she does not even know exist, such as payroll management or credit-card clearing.
