My computer froze up . There was a message to call Yahoo. I did and a woman Sara Nelson answered and said that they were trying to take money out of my savings account to buy child porn and adult porn . She transferred my call to a supposed Wells Fargo Fraud investigator . He said I needed to go to the bank and take 28000 out of my savings and then put it into a “ Federal Machine “. He had me keep my phone on all the time . He said they thought it was an inside job so don’t tell the bank . I was to tell them I was going on a trip . So I did . Then spent the next 8 to 10 hours with him on the phone trying to find a federal machine going to all these sleazy gas stations . Finally found one on East River Road . 8724 East River Road in Fridley , MN . Then he had me put in $15000. I realized it was. a Bitcoin Machine ! He wanted all of my money but I was tired and went home . The next day he wanted to have me drive around again but I went to the police and filed a report and then to the bank and put the remaining 13000 back in my savings account . I also changed my ATM card and my savings account . Have reached out to Bitcoin Fraud and they won’t do anything because I was beyond their 5 day reporting period . I made a police report . I also reported to the FBI . The scammer called me 20 times the next day before I blocked his call . I would like to get my money back but highly doubt I will .

A man named (joe) called me, he was not an english as primary language individual. He identified himself as working for wells fargo fraud dept and told me there was an abnormal purchase in Memphis, TN on my card. He attempted to send me an access code to verify my identity, he rattled off the last four of my social security number and then he made the mistake of giving an inaccurate mailing address for me. I promptly told him i was not trusting him and in fact i was going to the local wells fargo bank to check on this in person. He tried to strongly discourage that and wanted to handle this on the phone immediately.

I just got back from my local Wells Fargo bank, where a teller looked up my account history and in fact found NOTHING of a purchase in Memphis or for the price this Joe quoted me on.

I came back to my office and tried to phone this Joe, he answered my call and when i questioned his behavior as fraudulent, he immediately hung up on me and would not take any of my ongoing calls. This person needs to be removed from our society

Pretending to be Wells Fargo.

Was called by an individual claiming to be from Wells Fargo stating that there was a suspicious charge on my account and wanted to confirm details of my card to cancel it and resend a new one. When I said i would call the company myself because i was suspicious he immediately hung up. Call to the actual company confirmed this was all untrue and call was a scammer phishing for information.

Consumer called:

Advised she placed a call to Wells Fargo because she has been receiving magazines and she didn't want her card charged. She called the number on the back of their card, and she never did get a person. She went through the prompts advising they didn't want any special offers. They took all of her information and advised they needed to transfer. When she talked to Wells Fargo they said that is not their number.

I basically got a check in the mail that was a legit cashier's check I put it in the bank and then my bank froze and it was like $1,500 but I had originally $500 of my own and they think I have to pay it back even though they cashed it

- Greensboro, NC, USA

I received a phone call. They left a partial message on my cellphone. I was unable to make out the message because it seemed like it started halfway thru the message. I called the number and someone answered and said 'Wells Fargo.' There was a lot of background noise and I could hear my echo when I spoke to the person. The noise and the echo made me very leary. I told the person I was returning a phone call from the aforementioned number. They said 'Did you apply for a loan?' I said 'no' and they said 'ok' and hung up.
