Elizabeth Warren wants to know: How is it that Wells Fargo keeps making mistakes?

In a letter dated Tuesday, the Democratic senator slammed CEO Tim Sloan over the bank’s “utterly inept” efforts to compensate customers after a series of scandals.

She demanded that Wells Fargo respond to a series of questions about its processes by the end of the month.

“The bank is providing the customers it harmed with inaccurate information or making them jump through hoops just to get their money back,” the letter reads. “This is an inexcusable response.”

Wells Fargo (WFC) is working to clean up after the string of blunders that followed the bank’s fake accounts scandal. The company said last year that it wrongly charged homebuyers fees to lock in mortgage rates. Wells Fargo also charged hundreds of thousands of customers for auto insurance they didn’t need.

But the bank’s attempts to square these mistakes with customers haven’t been going well.
