Yesterday I received a txt message saying my Wells Fargo MasterCard was put on security hold, that if I clicked a link, I could remove the hold. I don’t have a Wells Fargo card, scam. Then I got an email….hmm….then today I got a phone call. A recorded message says my card was put on hold. I’ve had credit cards that were bought by new companies, maybe one of my cards was. So I called Wells Fargo. It’s a total scam.
Rules to live by and keep you safe:
- No bank should ever ask for your account number or other vital info, anywhere except on their secure site. Don’t share your info.
- Never click a link and expect it to be a secure site. Always go to your banks website and enter your info there, where it’s secure.
- In doubt, pick up the phone and call the bank.
