Wells Fargo (Spoof)

Sean –

Victim Location 28205

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a text message from 201-762-8251 indicating that my Wells Fargo account was termorarily locked because of activity. It directed me to call this number to review account actvity. It asked for my card number, pin number, last 4 digits of my social, and zip code associated with the account. Once it had all of that information, it did not proceed in reviewing any activity. Rather, it thanked me and said my account was fine and then ended the call. One thing that clued me in that something was not right is at the end of the call the automated person said "you card is no longer TEMPORARY locked" instead of temporarily.
