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.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

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

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.
