DES MOINES, Iowa -- Wells Fargo Home Mortgage has fired a Des Moines worker over a 1963 incident at a laundromat, involving a fake dime, in the wake of new employment guidelines.

Richard Eggers, 68, was fired in July from his job as a customer service representative for putting a cardboard cutout of a dime in a washing machine nearly 50 years ago in Carlisle, the Des Moines Register reported Monday.
