Beware of "Wells Fargo Visa Credit or Debit Card Locked" Phishing Scam

Wells Fargo customers, beware of "Wells Fargo Visa Credit or Debit Card Locked". I received the text message below from 201-762-8255. I suspected that it was fraudulent so I called a legitimate Wells Fargo number and spoke with Joe, who told me that everything was OK with my debit card. He then instructed me to report the fraudulent text message to email address: reportphish@wellsfargo.com. The contents of the text message are enclosed below.

Please continue below.

      2/18: I received the same general message today, but with a different phone number (202)800-9730. Only problem is I don't have any Well Fargo cards. Morons.
