Caller name: Well's Fargo

The automated message said that my debit card was compromised. I was instructed to call 877-294-6933 to activate my new card. They will ask for your checking account number and debit card number.

The worst part about this isn't the scam, it is the fact that the real Well's Fargo Customer Service won't look into it. Instead they say, "Oh well it might be a direct line that isn't listed in our web directory."

Never give your information to anyone. They have it already if they are legit.

Said they were from Wells Fargo, that my new card had been sent but not activated and to call them today. I am a Wells customer but my card is good through 2013, I haven't ordered a new card, etc. Interestingly enough, I signed up for online banking 2 wks ago and now the scammers start calling!

Receieved a VM a week ago saying my new card was in the mail, when I didn't order one. Then this number called me asking to activate new card.

I called my WellsFargo agent right away and this is a SCAM!

DO NOT EVEN ENTER IN ANY INFO!

I'm hoping this is the end of these calls!

Caller name: wells fargo

This is not a scam - I designed a personalized debit card and received it a week or so ago. I forgot that I received it and haven't activated it. It is a legit call.

Said they were from Well Fargo and that I needed to activate my new visa card that I applied for. I DID NOT apply for a card thru them, and I do not have an account there.

I received a call regrading my failure to activate the new credit card they mailed to me. I don't have any Wells Fargo accounts. A definite scam...

Caller name: Wells Fargo Bank

I received an Actual ATM card in the mail with a sticker asking me to call this number to activate my new ATM card. Wells fargo had the account on file but couldn't give me any customer info because it wasn't my account. It looks like this may be a legit number, but they are having problems with their system and its linking wrong numbers and addresses to accounts. I did verify that it was in no way linked to my account and was from a customer longer standing than I.

Caller name: Wendy (Well Fargo)

Wendy at Well Fargo left message on voice mail saying that new debit card had been mailed and I had failed to activate it. Did not have my name. I think it is a phishing scam. Will not call this number.

Caller name: Wells Fargo

Received a voice message on my cell phone voice mail that I need to activate my debit card for Wells Fargo. I have no account with Wells Fargo. I called the telephone number and waited until I could speak with a representative who said she was with Wells Fargo, ran my SS# through system and "verified" that I do not have an account with them. I gave her my cell phone # and she said she wanted the 877 #, not my cell #, and told me the call did not come from them, but the connection was lost just after she said she thought it was a phishing call. So now what happens? Can't we do something about this kind of call? In trying to do something to ensure I was safe, it appears I've dug myself in deeper and put myself at risk.

This number is the number that comes on your new debit card sticker FROM Wells Fargo Bank. I double checked it with my older Wells Fargo VISA (from a different account) and that one ALSO gave this number to activate card. It activated BOTH of my cards, which are legit... and still in use. Maybe some phishing scammers are phoning and have rigged their line to put OUT this number as the Caller ID... sure don't know.. but call it.. it IS Wells Fargo Bank.

i got the same call as others, saying please activate your new debit card. i do not have an account with Wells, i called Wells' number I know is theirs(1800-TO-WELLS), and they aid that this 877 number is not theirs. The people saying they called and it IS a valid and legit number, i worry may be the scakmmers leaving these messages. to be safe, i would call the Wells Fargo number you know for sure is the right one...watch out...

I called to activate my replacement card it started off as a normal activation message then suddenly the call was transferred to an automated recoding congratulating me on winning a cruise to the Bahamas telling me to push any number to speak with someone. Without touching anything within seconds someone with a bad "accent" starts speaking trying to obtain information.

I actually answered the call and got no response from the caller. This is totally a scam...they only leave voicemails apparently. Interesting though that I just signed up with a Wells Fargo account. Did they leak my information already?

I got a call from this number on my cell and answered. The automated answering machine was congraulating me on my new account and informed me that they had sent me my new debit card in the mail....I never set up an account with Wells Fargo. I hung up and called the number right back and actually spoke to someone, when I explained the situation to him he sounded so concerned and asked for my social so that he could "look into it". I told him I wasn't going to give him my social because I didn't feel comfortable do so. So he told me that I should go into a Wells Fargo Branch with my ID and they would be able to help me that way. I then logged onto Wells Fargo.com and found their REAL number and called them and they informed me that if I didn't set up an account with them, then I don't have an account with them. ITS A TOTAL SCAM!! DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY OF YOUR INFORMATION! IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH THEM THEN THEY DON'T NEED TO ASK YOU FOR ALL THE INFORMATION!

I had my debit card eaten by an ATM, so I went into Wells Fargo and did what I needed to do to replace it. While I was in the Bank, I agreed to sign up for another account. When I receive my new cards, I personally went into the bank to have the pin numbers reset. Everything was good until 1 week after initiating the new card. I started receiving phone calls from this number. Since I don't answer calls unless I know who it is, I let is go to voicemail. However, there was no voice mail. That number continues to call periodically. I called Wells Fargo and told them there is a known number associated with their organization calling customers to activate their card. The person at Wells Fargo said they would send the info on up the food chain.
When in doubt, let it go to voicemail. If no voicemail, they really didn't want to talk to you.

No legitimate bank would call you on the phone asking you for critical information. I brought the number into the bank and let them deal with it. If you want to go further, WF has a fraud department that is open 24/7.

I also called the WF # on the sticker of my replacement card and the call told me I had won a 2 night cruise to the Bahamas for $59/person to stay on the line for additional details on how to bill it to my credit card.

This is a REAL Wells Fargo number! I 100% guarantee it. They are calling to get your new card activated. I received a call, thought it was strange after reading about the number online, but then received my new debit card in the mail two days later. Again, this is a REAL Wells Fargo number. They activated my new debit card when I called them back.

This is a scam. They called and left a message saying I needed to activate my debit card.
I don't have a Wells Fargo checking account or Wells Fargo debit card. I have a mortgage account with them. They left a message that I needed to activate my debit card and I should have my Wells Fargo checking account number on hand.

This is a scam.
