The U.S. Bancorp/Peregrine Case

From 2014-2015, U.S. Bancorp faced a lawsuit from federal regulators, who sued the corporation for allegedly allowing customers’ assets to be used for the personal interests of Peregrine Financial Group’s founder, Russell Wasendorf. He used client assets to pay for a private plan, a divorce settlement, and his own restaurant. His scam ultimately cost U.S. Bancorp clients $215 million. U.S. Bancorp eventually paid $18 million as a result of failing to abide by financial rules that forbid customer assets to be used by any entity other than the customers.
