Wells Fargo Bank has reached a settlement with a small Antioch bank after a Wells Fargo employee spread rumors that the other bank was in financial trouble, the San Francisco Chronicle has reported. The employee told about 20 East County Bank customers that their bank was about to go under and invited them to switch to Wells Fargo, a banking source told the newspaper. Spreading false information about a bank is illegal and punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Ventura County bank robberies have dropped by half in 1993 as holdups in Oxnard and Ventura have plummeted from last year's record highs, the FBI reported Monday. But despite the drop from eight robberies a month to four countywide, authorities reported a disturbing trend in the east county: Bank holdups are up sharply, and out-of-county criminals are apparently to blame.
