WFSettlement.com provides the registration form and court documents associated with the case.  Class members in the WF Settlement case are defined as anyone who between May 1, 2002 to June 20, 2020 had a credit card, lines of credit, checking or savings account opened in their name without their permission.  The exact amount of money any one class member will receive at this time is not known and will be based on several factors.  Class members do not have to hire a lawyer as the court has appointed the law firm of Keller Rohrback to represent all class members who file timely claims.  Attorneys at Keller Rohrback, who negotiated the settlement with Wells Fargo, plan to request 15% of the total settlement fund (which is roughly 21 million US Dollars).  Any questions in regards to the WF Class Action Settlement can be directed to the settlement hotline at (866) 431-8549.  Class members who want to get an early jump on things can file the online registration form which will notify the class member when the claims filing period begins at the email address provided (or class members can occasionally check wfsettlement.com).  Class members who had a damage credit score as a result of the unauthorized accounts will be paid based on a complicated formula.
