The ongoing Wells Fargo Fraud scandal has proven to be much more nefarious than originally thought, and as we learn more about the bank’s predatory underground business model, we are also hearing more blustering from Wells Fargo executives.

On Sunday, John Oliver weighed in on the scandal, referring to the fraudulent nature of the scandal as a Russian nesting doll giving you the finger.

“Hidden fees are bad enough without being hidden inside hidden accounts with hidden PIN numbers made with hidden email addresses. Because that’s like a Russian nesting doll where the last doll is giving you the middle finger.”

We can only be grateful that the long-lasting fraudulent activities performed by Wells Fargo executives are getting so much attention. Maybe this time, a millionaire will get fired? Don’t get your hopes up, though!
