Wells Fargo Account Lockdown Scam: How It Works
Beware of the Wells Fargo Message Scam, that is perpetrating these days. Let’s see how it works. You may be receiving a phone call or text message one of these days claiming to be from Wells Fargo. It is an answering machine with a recorded message, informing that your account with the bank will be locked down.
Watch the video below to see in action a scammer caught on tape:
You are then invited to call a number – the latest used was (855) 804-8470 in order to resolve the matter. Once you call, you hear another automated system message asking you to press “1”.
From there, you are asked to provide your Social Security Number, date of birth, address, credit card number with a PIN, and other personal information that will lead to identity theft.
How to avoid:
It is a classic robocall scam. Wells Fargo already confirmed that this call is not from them and the recipients should not call that number, which could be different every day.
