(CNN) -- Wells Fargo has angered many customers by shutting down one of its popular credit products.

The bank notified customers who use its personal lines of credit no more money is available to them. People who used that credit offering could borrow up to 100-thousand dollars for things like home repairs or consolidate credit card debt.

In a notice to customers about the closure, Wells Fargo warned it could impact their credit scores. That gained the attention of Senator Elizabeth Warren -- who slammed the decision on Twitter and called the bank incompetent.

She was also a key figure when Wells Fargo admitted to opening millions of fake accounts and in 20-17 publicly told the bank's CEO he "should be fired."

A Wells Fargo spokesman says customers who previously used its personal lines of credit should now use credit cards and personal loans instead.
