    Notice popped up when we opened our account stating it was from Microsoft and they would be shutting ou account down because it had been hacked.

    Another notice then popped up telling us to call an 866 number or our account would be frozen and our computer would be shut down.

    Called Wells Fargo and was assured our account is in order and notice definitely is a phish.

    No email has been received, just direct notices on screen when we tried to bring up account.
