Wells Fargo Bank customers should never click on a link to sign into their online accounts or complete an attached form that request personal information, financial information or account credentials. They should always go directly to https://www.wellsfargo.com/ and sign into their accounts from there. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of changes or updates that need to be done to their accounts, if there is any.
Wells Fargo Bank customers who have already been tricked by the phishing email messages should change their passwords and contact Wells Fargo Bank immediately for help.
