Scam number:
  • Email asks you to confirm/update/verify your account data at Wells Fargo by visiting the given link. You will be taken to a spoof website where your details will be captured for the phishers.

  • Wells Fargo never send their users emails requesting personal details in this way.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website is hidden by a hyperlinked image in the body of the email. This is a technique used to get past spam filters that can only read normal text.

  • The REAL URL of the spoof website looks nothing like the actual Wells Fargo URL.
