Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf is before lawmakers again, today, to answer tough questions about the bank's practice where employees would use customers' personal information to create millions of fake accounts without their knowledge.

Take Two turns to financial advisor Delia Fernandez for advice on how to monitor your accounts for fraud and, if it comes to it, switch banks.
