Wells Fargo & Company is an American multinational financial services company with corporate headquarters in San Francisco, California, operational headquarters in Manhattan,[4] and managerial offices throughout the United States and internationally.[3] The company has operations in 35 countries with over 70 million customers globally.[3] It is considered a systemically important financial institution by the Financial Stability Board.

The firm's primary subsidiary is Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., a national bank chartered in Wilmington, Delaware[3] which designates its main office in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It is the fourth largest bank in the United States by total assets and is one of the largest as ranked by bank deposits and market capitalization. Along with JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Citigroup, Wells Fargo is one of the "Big Four Banks" of the United States.[5] It has 8,050 branches and 13,000 ATMs.[3] It is one of the most valuable bank brands.[6][7]

Wells Fargo in its present form is a result of a merger between the original Wells Fargo & Company and Minneapolis-based Norwest Corporation in 1998. While Norwest was the nominal survivor, the merged company took the better-known Wells Fargo name and moved to Wells Fargo's hub in San Francisco, while its banking subsidiary merged with Wells Fargo's Sioux Falls-based banking subsidiary. With the 2008 acquisition of Charlotte-based Wachovia, Wells Fargo became a coast-to-coast bank. Wells Fargo is ranked 7th on the Forbes Global 2000 list of largest public companies in the world and ranked 37th on the Fortune 500 list of the largest companies in the US.[3][8] The company has been the subject of several investigations by regulators. On February 2, 2018, due to the Wells Fargo account fraud scandal, the Federal Reserve barred Wells Fargo from growing its nearly $2 trillion-asset base any further until the company fixes its internal problems to the satisfaction of the Federal Reserve.[9] In September 2021, Wells Fargo incurred further fines from the United States Justice Department charging fraudulent behavior by the bank against foreign-exchange currency trading customers.[10]

History[edit]

For history before 1998, see Wells Fargo (1852–1998). For history after 1998, see History of Wells Fargo.

In 1852, Henry Wells and William G. Fargo, the two founders of American Express, formed Wells Fargo & Company to provide express and banking services to California, which was growing rapidly due to the California Gold Rush.

In March 1860, Wells Fargo gained control Butterfield Overland Mail Company, after Congress failed to pass the annual post office appropriation bill, thereby leaving the post office with no way to pay for the Overland Mail Company's services, and leaving Overland no way to pay Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo then operated the western portion of the Pony Express.[11]

In 1866, the "Grand consolidation" united Wells Fargo, Holladay, and Overland Mail stage lines under the Wells Fargo name.[12]

In 1872, Lloyd Tevis, a friend of the Central Pacific "Big Four" and holder of rights to operate an express service over the Transcontinental Railroad, became president of the company after acquiring a large stake, a position he held until 1892.[13]

In 1892, John J. Valentine, Sr., a long time Wells Fargo employee, was made president of the company. Valentine died in late December 1901 and was succeeded as president by Dudley Evans on January 2, 1902.

In 1905, Wells Fargo separated its banking and express operations; Wells Fargo's bank merged with the Nevada National Bank to form the Wells Fargo Nevada National Bank.[14]

In 1918, as a wartime measure, the United States government nationalized Wells Fargo's express franchise into a federal agency known as the US Railway Express Agency (REA). The federal government took control of the express company.[15] The bank began rebuilding but with a focus on commercial markets. After the war, the REA was privatized and continued service until 1975.

In 1923, Wells Fargo Nevada merged with the Union Trust Company to form the Wells Fargo Bank & Union Trust Company.[16]

In 1929, Northwest Bancorporation was formed as a banking association.

The company did well during the Great Depression; during a Bank Holiday in March 1933, the company actually gained $2 million of deposits.[17]

In 1954, Wells Fargo & Union Trust shortened its name to Wells Fargo Bank.

In 1960, Wells Fargo merged with American Trust Company to form the Wells Fargo Bank American Trust Company.[18]

In 1962, Wells Fargo American Trust shortened its name to Wells Fargo Bank.

In 1968, Wells Fargo was converted to a federal banking charter, becoming Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. Wells Fargo merges with Henry Trione's Sonoma Mortgage in a $10.8 million stock transfer, making Trione the largest shareholder in Wells Fargo until Warren Buffett and Walter Annenberg surpassed him.[19]

In 1969, Wells Fargo & Company holding company was formed, with Wells Fargo Bank as its main subsidiary.[20]

In 1982, Northwest Bancorporation acquired consumer finance firm Dial Finance, which was renamed Norwest Financial Service the following year.[21]

In 1983, Northwest Bancorporation was renamed Norwest Corporation.

In September 1983, a Wells Fargo armored truck depot in West Hartford, Connecticut was the victim of the White Eagle robbery, involving an insider who worked as an armored truck guard, in the largest US bank theft to date, with $7.1 million stolen and two co-workers tied up. The robbery was carried out with the support of the government of Cuba and the cash was initially moved to Mexico City.[22][23]

In 1986, Wells Fargo acquired Crocker National Bank from Midland Bank.[24][25]

In 1987, Wells Fargo acquired the personal trust business of Bank of America.[26]

In May 1995, Wells Fargo became the first major US financial services firm to offer internet banking.[29]

In 2008, Wells Fargo acquired United Bancorporation of Wyoming.[45]

In 2008, Wells Fargo acquired Century Bancshares of Texas.[46]

On October 3, 2008, after Wachovia turned down an inferior offer from Citigroup, Wachovia agreed to be bought by Wells Fargo for about $14.8 billion in stock.[47] On October 4, 2008, a New York state judge issued a temporary injunction blocking the transaction from going forward while the competing offer from Citigroup was sorted out.[48] Citigroup alleged that it had an exclusivity agreement with Wachovia that barred Wachovia from negotiating with other potential buyers. The injunction was overturned late in the evening on October 5, 2008, by New York state appeals court.[49] Citigroup and Wells Fargo then entered into negotiations brokered by the FDIC to reach an amicable solution to the impasse. Those negotiations failed. Citigroup was unwilling to take on more risk than the $42 billion that would have been the cap under the previous FDIC-backed deal (with the FDIC incurring all losses over $42 billion). Citigroup did not block the merger, but sought damages of $60 billion for breach of an alleged exclusivity agreement with Wachovia.[50]

On October 28, 2008, Wells Fargo received $25 billion of funds via the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act in the form of a preferred stock purchase by the United States Department of the Treasury.[51][52] As a result of requirements of the government stress tests, the company raised $8.6 billion in capital in May 2009.[53] On December 23, 2009, Wells Fargo redeemed $25 billion of preferred stock issued to the United States Department of the Treasury. As part of the redemption of the preferred stock, Wells Fargo also paid accrued dividends of $131.9 million, bringing the total dividends paid to $1.441 billion since the preferred stock was issued in October 2008.[54]

In 2013, the company was recognized by the EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership as a Climate Leadership Award winner, in the category "Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management (Goal Setting Certificate)"; this recognition was for the company's aim to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas emissions from its US operations by 35% by 2020 versus 2008 levels.[84]

Operations and services[edit]

Map of Wells Fargo branches in August 2015

Consumer Banking and Lending[edit]

The Consumer Banking and Lending segment includes Regional Banking, Diversified Products, and Consumer Deposits groups, as well as Wells Fargo Customer Connection (formerly Wells Fargo Phone Bank, Wachovia Direct Access, the National Business Banking Center, and Credit Card Customer Service). Wells Fargo also has around 2,000 stand-alone mortgage branches throughout the country. There are also mini-branches located inside of other buildings, which are almost exclusively grocery stores, that usually contain ATMs, basic bank teller services, and an office for private meetings with customers.[3]

Consumer lending[edit]

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage is the second largest retail mortgage originator in the United States, originating one out of every four home loans.[95] Wells Fargo services $1.8 trillion in home mortgages, the one of the largest servicing portfolios in the US.[3]

Equipment lending[edit]

Wells Fargo has various divisions, including Wells Fargo Rail, that finance and lease equipment to different types of companies.[3]

Wealth and Investment Management[edit]

Wells Fargo Advisors headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri

Wells Fargo offers investment products through its subsidiaries, Wells Fargo Investments, LLC, and Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, as well as through national broker/dealer firms. The company also serves high-net-worth individuals through its private bank and family wealth group.

Wells Fargo Advisors is the brokerage subsidiary of Wells Fargo, located in St. Louis, Missouri. It is the third-largest brokerage firm in the United States as of the third quarter of 2010 with $1.1 trillion retail client assets under management.[3]

Wells Fargo Advisors was known as Wachovia Securities until May 1, 2009, when it was renamed following Wells Fargo's acquisition of Wachovia Corporation.

Securities[edit]

The Seagram Building: Home of Wells Fargo Securities' New York offices and trading floors

Wells Fargo Securities (WFS) is the investment banking division of Wells Fargo & Co. headquartered in Charlotte, with other U.S. offices in New York, Minneapolis, Boston, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and with international offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo.

Wells Fargo Securities was established in 2009 after the acquisition of Wachovia Securities. It provides merger and acquisition, high yield, leveraged finance, equity underwriting, private placement, loan syndication, risk management, and public finance services

Cross-selling[edit]

A key part of Wells Fargo's business strategy is cross-selling, the practice of encouraging existing customers to buy additional banking services.[98][99] Customers inquiring about their checking account balance may be pitched mortgage deals and mortgage holders may be pitched credit card offers in an attempt to increase the customer's profitability to the bank.[100][101] Other banks have attempted to emulate Wells Fargo's cross-selling practices (described by The Wall Street Journal as a hard sell technique).[100]

International operations[edit]

Wells Fargo has banking services throughout the world, with overseas offices in Hong Kong, London, Dubai, Singapore, Tokyo, and Toronto.[102][103] Back-offices are in India and the Philippines with more than 20,000 staff.[104]

In 2010, hedge fund administrator Citco purchased the trust company operation of Wells Fargo in the Cayman Islands.[105]

Charter[edit]

Wells Fargo operates under Charter #1, the first national bank charter issued in the United States. This charter was issued to First National Bank of Philadelphia on June 20, 1863, by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.[106] Traditionally, acquiring banks assume the earliest issued charter number. Thus, the first charter passed from First National Bank of Philadelphia to Wells Fargo through its 2008 acquisition of Wachovia, which had inherited it through one of its many acquisitions.

Lawsuits, fines and controversies[edit]

1981 MAPS Wells Fargo embezzlement scandal[edit]

In 1981, it was discovered that a Wells Fargo assistant operations officer, Lloyd Benjamin "Ben" Lewis, had perpetrated one of the largest embezzlements in history, through its Beverly Drive branch. During 1978 - 1981, Lewis had successfully written phony debit and credit receipts to benefit boxing promoters Harold J. Smith (né Ross Eugene Fields) and Sam "Sammie" Marshall, chairman and president, respectively, of Muhammed Ali Professional Sports, Inc. (MAPS), of which Lewis was also listed as a director; Marshall, too, was a former employee of the same Wells Fargo branch as Lewis. In excess of $300,000 was paid to Lewis, who pled guilty to embezzlement and conspiracy charges in 1981, and testified against his co-conspirators for a reduced five-year sentence.[107] (Boxer Muhammed Ali had received a fee for the use of his name, and had no other involvement with the organization.[108])

Higher costs charged to African-American and Hispanic borrowers[edit]

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan filed suit against Wells Fargo on July 31, 2009, alleging that the bank steers African Americans and Hispanics into high-cost subprime loans. A Wells Fargo spokesman responded that "The policies, systems, and controls we have in place – including in Illinois – ensure race is not a factor..."[109] An affidavit filed in the case stated that loan officers had referred to black mortgage-seekers as "mud people," and the subprime loans as "ghetto loans."[110] According to Beth Jacobson, a loan officer at Wells Fargo interviewed for a report in The New York Times, "We just went right after them. Wells Fargo mortgage had an emerging-markets unit that specifically targeted black churches because it figured church leaders had a lot of influence and could convince congregants to take out subprime loans." The report presented data from the city of Baltimore, where more than half the properties subject to foreclosure on a Wells Fargo loan from 2005 to 2008 now stand vacant. And 71 percent of those are in predominantly black neighborhoods.[110] Wells Fargo agreed to pay $125 million to subprime borrowers and $50 million in direct down payment assistance in certain areas, for a total of $175 million.[111][112][113]

Failure to monitor suspected money laundering[edit]

In a March 2010 agreement with US federal prosecutors, Wells Fargo acknowledged that between 2004 and 2007 Wachovia had failed to monitor and report suspected money laundering by narcotics traffickers, including the cash used to buy four planes that shipped a total of 22 tons of cocaine into Mexico.[114]

Overdraft fees[edit]

In August 2010, Wells Fargo was fined by United States district court judge William Alsup for overdraft practices designed to "gouge" consumers and "profiteer" at their expense, and for misleading consumers about how the bank processed transactions and assessed overdraft fees.[115][116]

Settlement and fines regarding mortgage servicing practices[edit]

On February 9, 2012, it was announced that the five largest mortgage servicers (Ally Financial, Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo) agreed to a settlement with the US Federal Government and 49 states.[117] The settlement, known as the National Mortgage Settlement (NMS), required the servicers to provide about $26 billion in relief to distressed homeowners and in direct payments to the federal and state governments. This settlement amount makes the NMS the second largest civil settlement in U.S. history, only trailing the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.[118] The five banks were also required to comply with 305 new mortgage servicing standards. Oklahoma held out and agreed to settle with the banks separately.[119]

On April 5, 2012, a federal judge ordered Wells Fargo to pay $3.1 million in punitive damages over a single loan, one of the largest fines for a bank ever for mortgaging service misconduct, after the bank improperly charged Michael Jones, a New Orleans homeowner, with $24,000 in mortgage fees, after the bank misallocated payments to interest instead of principal. Elizabeth Magner, a federal bankruptcy judge in the Eastern District of Louisiana, cited the bank's behavior as "highly reprehensible", stating that Wells Fargo has taken advantage of borrowers who rely on the bank's accurate calculations.[120][121] The award was affirmed on appeal in 2013.[122]

In May 2013, New York attorney-general Eric Schneiderman announced a lawsuit against Wells Fargo over alleged violations of the national mortgage settlement. Schneidermann claimed Wells Fargo had violated rules over giving fair and timely serving.[123] In 2015, a judge sided with Wells Fargo.[124]

SEC fine due to inadequate risk disclosures[edit]

On August 14, 2012, Wells Fargo agreed to pay around $6.5 million to settle U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charges that in 2007 it sold risky mortgage-backed securities without fully realizing their dangers.[125]

Lawsuit by FHA over loan underwriting[edit]

In 2016, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $1.2 billion to settle allegations that the company violated the False Claims Act by underwriting over 100,000 Federal Housing Administration (FHA) backed loans when over half of the applicants did not qualify for the program.[126][127]

In October 2012, Wells Fargo was sued by United States AttorneyPreet Bharara over questionable mortgage deals.[128]

Lawsuit due to premium inflation on forced place insurance[edit]

In April 2013, Wells Fargo settled a suit with 24,000 Florida homeowners alongside insurer QBE Insurance, in which Wells Fargo was accused of inflating premiums on forced-place insurance.[129]

Lawsuit regarding excessive overdraft fees[edit]

In May 2013, Wells Fargo paid $203 million to settle class-action litigation accusing the bank of imposing excessive overdraft fees on checking-account customers.[130]

Violation of New York credit card laws[edit]

In February 2015, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $4 million, including a $2 million penalty and $2 million in restitution for illegally taking an interest in the homes of borrowers in exchange for opening credit card accounts for the homeowners.[131]

Tax liability and lobbying[edit]

In December 2011, Public Campaign criticized Wells Fargo for spending $11 million on lobbying during 2008–2010, while increasing executive pay and laying off workers, while having no federal tax liability due to losses from the Great Recession.[132] However, in 2013, the company paid $9.1 billion in income taxes.[133]

Prison industry investment[edit]

Main article: Prison–industrial complex

The company has invested its clients' funds in GEO Group, a multi-national provider of for-profit private prisons.[134] By March 2012, its stake had grown to more than 4.4 million shares worth $86.7 million.[135] As of November 2012, Wells Fargo divested 33% of its holdings of GEO's stock, reducing its stake to 4.98% of Geo Group's common stock, below the threshold of which it must disclose further transactions.[136][137]

Discrimination against African Americans in hiring[edit]

In August 2020, the company agreed to pay $7.8 million in back wages for allegedly discriminating against 34,193 African Americans in hiring for tellers, personal bankers, customer sales and service representatives, and administrative support positions. The company agreed to provide jobs to 580 of the affected applicants.[138]

[edit]

In May 2015, Gregory T. Bolan Jr., a stock analyst at Wells Fargo agreed to pay $75,000 to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to settle allegations that he gave Joseph C. Ruggieri, a stock trader, insider information on probable ratings charges. Ruggieri was not convicted of any crime.[139][140][141]

Wells Fargo fake accounts scandal[edit]

Main article: Wells Fargo account fraud scandal

In September 2016, Wells Fargo was issued a combined total of $185 million in fines for opening over 1.5 million checking and savings accounts and 500,000 credit cards on behalf of customers without their consent. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issued $100 million in fines, the largest in the agency's five-year history, along with $50 million in fines from the City and County of Los Angeles, and $35 million in fines from the Office of Comptroller of the Currency.[142] The scandal was caused by an incentive-compensation program for employees to create new accounts. It led to the firing of nearly 5,300 employees and $5 million being set aside for customer refunds on fees for accounts the customers never wanted.[143]Carrie Tolstedt, who headed the department, retired in July 2016 and received $124.6 million in stock, options, and restricted Wells Fargo shares as a retirement package.[144][145]

On October 12, 2016, John Stumpf, the then chairman and CEO, announced that he would be retiring amidst the scandals. President and Chief Operating Officer Timothy J. Sloan succeeded Stumpf, effective immediately. Following the scandal, applications for credit cards and checking accounts at the bank plummeted.[146] In response to the event, the Better Business Bureau dropped accreditation of the bank.[147][148] Several states and cities ended business relations with the company.[149]

An investigation by the Wells Fargo board of directors, the report of which was released in April 2017, primarily blamed Stumpf, who it said had not responded to evidence of wrongdoing in the consumer services division, and Tolstedt, who was said to have knowingly set impossible sales goals and refused to respond when subordinates disagreed with them. Wells Fargo coined the phrase, “Go for Gr-Eight” – or, in other words, aim to sell at least 8 products to every customer. The board chose to use a clawback clause in the retirement contracts of Stumpf and Tolstedt to recover $75 million worth of cash and stock from the former executives.[150]

In February 2020, the company agreed to pay $3 billion to settle claims by the United States Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The settlement did not prevent individual employees from being targets of future litigation.[151] The Federal Reserve put a limit to Wells Fargo's assets, as a result of the scandal. In 2020, Wells Fargo sold $100 million in assets to stay under the limit.[152]

Racketeering lawsuit for mortgage appraisal overcharges[edit]

In November 2016, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $50 million to settle allegations of overcharging hundreds of thousands of homeowners for appraisals ordered after they defaulted on their mortgage loans. While banks are allowed to charge homeowners for such appraisals, Wells Fargo frequently charged homeowners $95 to $125 on appraisals for which the bank had been charged $50 or less. The plaintiffs had sought triple damages under the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act on grounds that sending invoices and statements with fraudulently concealed fees constituted mail and wire fraud sufficient to allege racketeering.[153]

Financing of Dakota Access Pipeline[edit]

Wells Fargo is a lender on the Dakota Access Pipeline, a 1,172-mile-long (1,886 km) underground oil pipeline transport system in North Dakota. The pipeline has been controversial regarding its potential impact on the environment.[154]

In February 2017, the city councils of Seattle, Washington and Davis, California voted to move $3 billion of deposits from the bank due to its financing of the Dakota Access Pipeline as well as the Wells Fargo account fraud scandal.[155]

Failure to comply with document security requirements[edit]

In December 2016, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority fined Wells Fargo $5.5 million for failing to store electronic documents in a "write once, read many" format, which makes it impossible to alter or destroy records after they are written.[156]

Doing business with the gun industry and NRA[edit]

From December 2012 through February 2018, Wells Fargo reportedly helped two of the biggest firearms and ammunition companies obtain $431.1 million in loans. It also handled banking for the National Rifle Association and provided bank accounts and a $28-million line of credit.[157] In 2020, the company said that it is winding down its business with the National Rifle Association.[158]

Discrimination against female workers[edit]

Further information: Glass ceiling

In June 2018, about a dozen female Wells Fargo executives from the wealth management division met in Scottsdale, Arizona to discuss the minimal presence of women occupying senior roles within the company. The meeting, dubbed "the meeting of 12", represented the majority of the regional managing directors, of which 12 out of 45 were women.[159] Wells Fargo had previously been investigating reports of gender bias in the division in the months leading up to the meeting.[160] The women reported that they had been turned down for top jobs despite their qualifications, and instead the roles were occupied by men.[160] There were also complaints against company president Jay Welker, who is also the head of the Wells Fargo wealth management division, due to his sexist statements regarding female employees. The female workers claimed that he called them "girls" and said that they "should be at home taking care of their children."[160][161]

Overselling auto insurance[edit]

On June 10, 2019, Wells Fargo agreed to pay $385 million to settle a lawsuit accusing it of allegedly scamming millions of auto-loan customers into buying insurance they did not need from National General Insurance.[162][163]

Failure to Supervise Registered Representatives[edit]

On August 28, 2020, Wells Fargo agreed to pay a fine of $350,000 as well as $10 million in restitution payments to certain customers after the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority accused the company of failing to reasonably supervise two of its registered representatives that recommended that customers invest a high percentage of their assets in high-risk energy securities in 2014 and 2015.[164]

Steering customers to more expensive retirement accounts[edit]

In April 2018, the United States Department of Labor launched a probe into whether Wells Fargo was pushing its customers into more expensive retirement plans as well as into retirement funds managed by Wells Fargo itself.[165][166]

Alteration of documents[edit]

In May 2018, the company discovered that its business banking group had improperly altered documents about business clients in 2017 and early 2018.[167]

Executive compensation[edit]

With CEO John Stumpf paid 473 times more than the median employee, Wells Fargo ranked number 33 among the S&P 500 companies for CEO—employee pay inequality. In October 2014, a Wells Fargo employee earning $15 per hour emailed the CEO—copying 200,000 other employees—asking that all employees be given a $10,000 per year raise taken from a portion of annual corporate profits to address wage stagnation and income inequality. After being contacted by the media, Wells Fargo responded that all employees receive "market competitive" pay and benefits significantly above US federal minimums.[168][169]

Pursuant to Section 953(b) of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, publicly traded companies are required to disclose (1) the median total annual compensation of all employees other than the CEO and (2) the ratio of the CEO's annual total compensation to that of the median employee.[170]

[edit]

Wells Fargo & Company reported Total CO2e emissions (Direct + Indirect) for the twelve months ending 31 December 2020 at 776 Kt (-87 /-10.1% y-o-y).[171] There has been a consistent declining trend in reported emissions since 2015.

In popular culture[edit]

Wells Fargo stagecoaches are mentioned in the song "The Deadwood Stage (Whip-Crack-Away!)" in the 1953 film Calamity Jane performed by Doris Day: "With a fancy cargo, care of Wells and Fargo, Illinois - Boy!".[177]

How Mobile Check Deposit Works

As technology advances, banks often offer their customers a variety of features designed to make banking easier. Many banks offer mobile banking, digital wallet payments, peer-to-peer payments, and more. And one popular feature—mobile check deposit—allows customers to deposit checks through the bank's app without leaving home.

Learn more about using mobile check deposit to conveniently get money into your bank account.

What Is a Mobile Deposit?

Mobile deposit is a way to deposit a check without physically going to the bank. Using a mobile device with a camera—such as a smartphone or a tablet—it's easy to take a picture of the check, which is then uploaded through the bank's mobile app. Mobile deposits are usually cleared within a matter of days.

Steps for Making a Mobile Check Deposit

The method for depositing a check may vary slightly, depending on the financial institution. However, the following steps often apply.

Download the Mobile Banking App

First, make sure your bank or credit union offers mobile check deposit. If it does, the website will often provide a download link to the bank's mobile app. Download the app onto a mobile device with a camera—Android, iPhone, and Windows devices are typically supported. Start from your bank’s website to ensure you get the legitimate app rather than an impostor.

Endorse Your Check

Include any endorsement required by your bank. A signature in the payee section at the top of the back of the check may be sufficient, but your bank may require a restrictive endorsement that makes your intention clear.

Note

One example of such an endorsement is "For mobile deposit only to my [name of financial institution] account."

Some checks already contain the mobile deposit language on the back of the check, next to a checkbox; by checking the box, you may not need to write it out. Skipping endorsement could lead to delays in getting your money, and you may need to endorse and re-deposit it.

Enter Required Information

Depending on your bank’s app, you may need to provide a bit of information about the check during a mobile check deposit. This may include the amount of the check and the account in which you want to deposit the funds.

Take Photos

The app should guide you through the process of snapping photos of the check using your mobile device. You’ll need separate pictures of the front and back, along with your endorsement.

Tip

Some banking apps will automatically take a photo when the camera is positioned directly over the check. To ensure crisp images, make sure that all four corners of the check are within the frame shown in the app.

Verify and Submit Your Deposit

The app will likely automatically read the numbers printed in magnetic ink on the bottom of the check and ask you to verify that they have recorded correctly. If everything looks good, submit your request.

Wait for Confirmation

Don't destroy the check immediately after depositing it, as the bank may not have accepted it yet. Many banks suggest keeping it for a certain period of time; other banks recommend shredding the check as soon as it has cleared. Visit your bank's website to see what its recommendation is.

After you submit your deposit, you’ll usually get an email confirming receipt, and you may receive another one informing you that the deposit was accepted. Verify that your account balance reflects the deposit.

Tip

Until your check has been fully cleared, make a small mark on the check with a date to remind yourself that it has been deposited.

When Will Mobile Deposit Funds Be Available?

After you deposit your check, you will likely have to wait until at least the next business day before all of the money is accessible. Sometimes, banks will make a portion available the same day but place a hold on the remaining funds until a later date.

Mobile Check Deposit Restrictions

To reduce fraud, most banks set certain limits on deposits made with a mobile device. Learn more about the limitations commonly placed on mobile deposits.

Mobile Deposit Limits

There’s usually a maximum deposit limit that applies per day or per month, and there may also be a limit on the number of checks you can deposit. The dollar limit varies from bank to bank, but you can often deposit several thousand dollars per month.

You can usually view your deposit limits inside the app. For example, the Wells Fargo mobile app shows you your mobile deposit limit after you select an account and enter the desired deposit amount. Your limit may be raised if your account has been open for several years without any problems.

Permitted Deposit Types

You may only be able to make standard deposits, which are checks made payable directly to you, rather than those paid to someone else but signed over to you. If a check is payable to you as well as someone else, there’s a chance you can still deposit it in your individual account—if both of you endorse it and it’s not a large amount of money.

Note

Checks typically must be drawn on U.S. banks in U.S. currency. In addition, money orders are not always allowed.

Mobile Check Deposit Safety

Mobile check deposits are generally safe, and they can even prevent certain methods of fraud. It becomes much harder for a criminal to steal your check when you keep it with you and submit it for deposit quickly.

Reputable banks and credit unions use industry-standard encryption in their apps, so your account details should be safe. And check images and other data are not stored on your mobile device.

However, it’s best not to use public Wi-Fi for any sensitive information or anything requiring your bank password. It's better to use a secure wired or wireless connection—or your mobile phone’s data connection—if you want to avoid sharing sensitive information.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What do you do with a check after a mobile deposit?

After you make your deposit, write "deposited' on the front of the check and hang onto it until you receive confirmation from the bank that the deposit has cleared. Once it clears, destroy the check to prevent any problems with someone attempting to deposit the check a second time.

How do I cancel a mobile check deposit?

You may be able to cancel a mobile deposit, but it depends on your bank's policies. Since the deposit is typically accepted by the next business day, you may only have a very limited window in which to request a cancellation.

Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit Limits, Fees & Cut-Off Times

If you’re a Wells Fargo customer, then you should take advantage of their mobile deposit because it gives you a way of adding funds to your deposit account fast and securely using the camera on your phone or other mobile device.

Some of the times, the deposited funds are available to you the day after the deposit is credited. Continue reading to learn more about Wells Fargo mobile deposits.

How Long Does Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit Take?

The length of time before you can access your deposited Wells Fargo funds depends on the type of deposit and whether Wells Fargo places a hold on the money.

Check Deposits

Normally, as long as you deposit your check before he cut-off time on a business day, the deposited funds are usually available to you the day after Wells Fargo accepts the deposit. Here is how the cut off time works:

  • Deposits made before 9 p.m. Pacific Time on business days are available the next business day.
  • Deposits made after 9 p.m. PT on business days are available the business day after the date Wells Fargo credits your account.
  • Deposits made on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays are available the day after the date Wells Fargo credits your account.

When Funds May Be Delayed

Wells Fargo will hold some or all of the funds of a deposited check if it can’t be processed right away. If that is the case, you will see a notification letting you know when the funds will be available to you and giving you the option to cancel the deposit.

Once the funds are ready for you to access, you’ll see the deposit reflected in your available balance.

Transfers

The Wells Fargo Mobile App lets you transfer funds between Wells Fargo accounts or between a Wells Fargo account and one at another financial institution.

  • Funds transferred between Wells Fargo accounts are available immediately as long as the transaction is made by 8 p.m. PT on a business day.
  • For transfers after 8 p.m., Wells Fargo will use the funds to pay transactions during its overnight processing even though the transfer will show as “pending” in your account information.

If you transfer funds into your Wells Fargo account from an account at another institution, it will take up to three business days to become available.


Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit Limits

Wells Fargo imposes daily and monthly limits on the total dollar amount of check deposits you can make via mobile deposit:

  • Daily limit: $2,500
  • Monthly limit: $5,000 (30-day period)

Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit Fees

Wells Fargo does not charge fees for using their mobile deposit feature on their app. Check with your wireless carrier to find out if there are fees charged for messages and data.


How Does Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit Work?

As mentioned above, you make mobile deposits using the Wells Fargo Mobile App, which is available from Google Play and Apple’s App Store.

How To Deposit Checks With Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit

This process is actually very simple. All you have to do is have a smartphone or table with a camera. From there, you detach the check from any stubs or loose hanging paper and sign the back of the check. Then you position the check so that it lies flat on a dark-colored, adequately lit surface. Then you follow these steps.

  1. Log into your account using the mobile app.
  2. Select “Deposit Checks.”
  3. From the “Deposit” dropdown menu, select the account where you want the deposit to go. You can designate a default account for future mobile deposits.
  4. Enter the amount written on the check. Your remaining daily and monthly mobile deposit allotments will be displayed beneath the deposit amount.
  5. Photograph the front and back of the check using the camera button on your device. Be sure the corners of the check fit inside the guides.
  6. Review the deposit information to verify that it’s correct, and then tap “Deposit.”

Benefits and Drawbacks of Wells Fargo Mobile Deposit

Although the Wells Fargo mobile deposit feature on the app is convenient, there are still some drawbacks to using it.

Pros

  • Takes just a few minutes to deposit a check
  • No charge for using mobile deposit
  • Next-day availability for most deposits made before the cut-off time

Cons
