Wells-FargoAccording to Andrew S. Ross at the San Francisco Chronicle, Wells Fargo credit card holders can expect to see a 3% hike on their Wells Fargo card interest rates effective November 30th. This is of course not likely to sit well with the House Financial Services Committee and other politicians who recently enacted legislation that will attempt to curb these very types of interest rate hikes that are levied on the existing balances of cardholders.

Barney Frank, the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee is expected to seek for the new legislation to be enacted earlier than expected in order to prevent these types of moves by Wells Fargo and others who are hiking rates before they are no longer able to with such abandon under the new credit card laws.
