Citizens across the nation are currently receiving a recorded message informing them that Wells Fargo Bank has locked down their accounts and they will need to call (855) 804-8470 to resolve this matter. Once a person calls this number, they will hear again the original message which will inform them to press 1.
The caller will then be asked to provide their social security number, date of birth, zip code, card expiration date, 4-digit pin and street number. After all the requested information is answer by the caller the line will go dead.
THIS IS A SCAM!
Wells Fargo says they are aware of the scam and asks customers not to provide their mother’s maiden name, pin numbers, social security numbers, etc. to an unsolicited phone calls.
If they have questions about their accounts, customers are asked to call the number on the back of their debit/credit cards or go to WellsFargo.com.
If you should fall prey to one of these messages, Wells Fargo requests you contact them immediately.
