Wells Fargo (WFC) said late Monday that it fired Cheronda Guyton, a senior vice president in charge of commercial foreclosed properties, for using a foreclosed beach house in Malibu, Calif., for private parties and weekend guests.

 

"A single team member was responsible for violating our company policies. As a result, employment of this individual has been terminated," Wells said in a statement. "We deeply regret the activities that have taken place as they do not reflect the conduct we expect of our team members."

 

Last week, The Los Angeles Times reported that the 39-year-old Guyton had been seen using the property for her own personal use. The bank took possession of the home last May after the former owners, Lawrence and Linda Elins, were wiped out by Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

 

The 3,800-square-foot house is valued at between $12 million and $25 million and is located in a community that is gated to prevent the public from trespassing on private beaches.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market maintained a narrow trading range on Thursday before ending the session essentially where it began. The S&P 500 added less than a point, while the small-cap Russell 2000 (-0.2%) underperformed.

Equity indices displayed early strength thanks in part to an overnight boost from better than expected economic data in China and Europe. Specifically, China's HSBC Manufacturing PMI surged to an 18-month high (52.0 from 50.7), while Eurozone Manufacturing PMI ... More
