Email purporting to be from US based bank Wells Fargo claims that you should click a link to read a new security message related to a supposed unauthorized account access attempt.
The email is not from Wells Fargo and there is no security issue. In fact, the message is a typical phishing scam designed to steal your Wells Fargo account login details.
Clicking the link takes you to a fraudulent website. If you attempt to login as requested on the fake site, scammers can steal your username and password and then use these credentials to hijack your bank account.
