EDITOR'S NOTE: Former Wells Fargo & Co. investment adviser Kenneth A. Welsh allegedly stole nearly $3 million from clients, per Yahoo! Finance. Federal prosecutors say the crimes happened from 2016 to 2021 when Welsh siphoned off money from the accounts of five investor clients. Wells Fargo released a statement that read, “At Wells Fargo we hold our employees to the highest ethical standards. We notified regulators of this matter, the financial adviser was terminated, and we are working directly with clients to reimburse them.” Welsh apparently used most of the stolen money for personal expenses, but he did do one smart thing with it: he bought gold coins.
