THE ALLENTOWN MORNING CALL, "Credit bureaus asked to help victims of Wells Fargo fake account scandal": "Consumer and civil rights groups are pressuring credit bureaus to give immigrant victims of the Wells Fargo fake account scandal free copies of credit reports in their native languages so they can dispute any fraudulent accounts... "This translation expense should not be passed on to … consumers, but should be considered part of your cost of doing business in order to provide equal access to consumers of different backgrounds and languages," said the letter signed by 18 groups including the NAACP, National Council of La Raza, National Association of Consumer Advocates and the National Consumer Law Center."
