Scam Targets Wells Fargo Customers

Northwest Iowans are being warned about bogus text messages that claim to be from Wells Fargo Bank, directing people to go to a phony website and enter their account information. Angie Kaipust, spokeswoman for the bank in Sioux City, says it’s a “phishing” scam.


Kaipust says after you delete the message, it’s a good idea to contact your bank and ensure your account hasn’t been compromised.


The bank already has the account information on its customers, she reminds, so they wouldn’t be asking for it.
