Have You Gotten These Text Messages from “Wells Fargo”?
Has anyone else received texts that look like this?
Weird, right? And I'm fairly certain these are a scam. Don't worry, I haven't clicked on the links from either of them. That's definitely one of the things that made me suspicious, were those links. As far as I know, banks wouldn't shorten their websites to a bitly link.
Another piece that makes me think these are a scam is because of where these messages are coming from. The first one came from email@example.com and the other came from firstname.lastname@example.org. Really? I don't think so.
Oh, and the biggest give away that these texts are probably a scam? I don't have a Wells Fargo bank account! I've never even applied for one so there's literally no way that my account that doesn't exist has detected suspicious activity.
If you've received a text like this let me know so I know I'm not the only one! Also, if you get anything (text, email, whatever) and it looks a little weird and there's a link, don't touch that link!
