Report suspicious email claiming to be from Wells Fargo.

Scam Alert 🚨
I have received my first “fishing” text. I awoke this morning and picked up my phone to see what time it was, and noticed I had a text. Upon checking, I read that our Wells Fargo debut card is locked. 🤔 But we do not have a Wells Fargo account. So I type in the message on Google and it’s fraud. It has been going on for YEARS! They seem to hit “areas” like a state or city. So, I figured I would do my part and share.
Banks in the USA will not initiate contact with you and request your verification of your account. If you receive a text or email similar to this one, requesting you context them, do not click or call that number. Rather, call the number on the back of your credit/debit card or bank statement.
I found the fraud page on the Wells Fargo website and sent a screenshot to their fraud email.
