What is phishing?

Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, and account details, typically through an email or text message. These messages may impersonate a company and often include an urgent request to convince you to sign on to a spoof site, open an attachment containing malware, or respond with personal or account information. Once obtained, this information can be used to access your account and steal money.

If you receive a suspicious email or text message, don’t respond, click any links, or open attachments. Don’t sign on to your account from a link in a suspicious message. To sign on, go to the Wells Fargo homepage by typing https://wellsfargo.com into your browser or use the Wells Fargo Mobile® app.
