``In February, the No. 4 U.S. bank by assets received a so-called Wells notice from the SEC over disclosures provided in certain mortgage-backed securities offerings.

The agency had said in a court filing that it was investigating possible fraud in connection with the bank's sale of nearly $60 billion in residential mortgage-backed securities to investors.''
