What allegedly happened next led to humiliation for Knight, and a lawsuit claiming the bank discriminated against him because he’s black.

Wells Fargo said it takes seriously the lawsuit’s allegations, and opposes any kind of discrimination. “We believe that Mr. Knight does not accurately describe the events that transpired and look forward to defending this matter in court,” said Wells Fargo spokesman Ruben Pulido.

Knight, 65 at the time and a Contra Costa County resident, alleged in his suit that when he walked into the bank branch in 2017, a manager told him that because he wasn’t a Wells Fargo customer, he would need to show two pieces of identification. Knight, familiar with the requirement, stepped into line for a teller and got his California driver’s license and two credit cards ready, he claimed in the suit filed Thursday in Northern California U.S. District Court.

Wells Fargo Banking Fees and Charges. Wells Fargo is one of the largest banks in the United States. Though this trick will only save a few dollars than an overdraft, some checking accounts, such as the “Portfolio” by Wells Fargo will waive this fee with a high enough account balance.

But when he reached the counter, the teller told him she needed to verify the checks by calling the man who wrote them, Knight claimed. The man did not answer his phone, and the teller told Knight she couldn’t cash the checks until the man could be reached, Knight alleged.

Knight went to the branch manager, and explained that he had previously cashed several checks from the same Wells Fargo customer, and had shown the necessary ID, Knight claimed.

“The manager refused to help and refused to cash the checks,” he alleged.

Knight, of Oakley, claimed he called the check writer, who asked to speak to the manager.

“The manager refused to accept the phone call on Mr. Knight’s phone and said the check-writing customer had to call the branch directly,” he claimed. The man phoned and told the bank “he had never been called before when his white or Asian acquaintances went to the bank to cash his checks,” Knight claimed.

The check writer also said he had written three more checks to Knight that Knight would also be coming in to cash, according to the suit.

“In response, the bank manager stated that he would not be there the next day, so it is not his concern,” Knight claimed in the suit.

Despite verifying the checks, the manager refused to cash them, telling Knight to get back in line if he wanted them cashed, Knight alleged.

“The manager even threatened to call the police,” Knight claimed. “The entire time, the bank manager’s attitude was intentionally and willfully aggressive and demeaning in nature, in furtherance of his racial discrimination against Mr. Knight.”

Knight went to the back of the line, “while the manager and a security guard stood behind him the entire time in a threatening manner,” Knight alleged.

“When Mr. Knight approached the teller window, he was once again asked for two forms of identification, despite the fact that the prior teller had already notated the checks with this information.”

After nearly an hour, the bank cashed the checks, according to the suit.

Knight’s suit described Wells Fargo’s actions as “malicious,” and claimed the bank, in denying him the right to cash checks on the basis of his race, “intentionally, knowingly, and recklessly caused Mr. Knight severe emotional distress.”

He is seeking unspecified damages.
