Wells Fargo scam?

  Southernboy 16:22 18 Oct 2004

I have had two e-mails purporting to come from the above US bank, informing me of changes to their system and asking me to import details of my ATM card.

I pretty clumsy scam it seems, but someone may fall for it.

PS I have never used Wells Fargo anyway and I wonder if they are aware of this?

It would probably be worth telling them, although they have a note on their site that there was a fraud attempt on 15th October.

Their report form can be found at

(Note this is the real Wells Fargo site - I found it via Google)

The Metropolitan Police may also want to know about it

They will both be helped if you can give them the full header details rather than the one that appears normally.

You can also send a copy of the email to [email protected] whatever the real ISP is that the phishers are using.
