Wells Fargo Typo Victim Dies in Court

The LA Weekly reports:

“On the morning of Dec. 19, 2012, in a Torrance courtroom, Larry Delassus’ heart stopped as he watched his attorney argue his negligence and discrimination case against banking behemoth Wells Fargo.

“His death came more than two years after Wells Fargo mistakenly mixed up his Hermosa Beach address with that of a neighbor in the same condo complex. The bank’s typo led Wells Fargo to demand that Delassus pay $13,361.90 ­— two years of late property taxes the bank said it had paid on his behalf in order to keep his Wells Fargo mortgage afloat.”

  1. My mother commited suicide in Covington, LA last month after the foreclosure and auction of her family property. The bank, which is Chase, bought it back from themselves (don’t ask how). May she rest in peace.
