Wells Fargo (Costa Mesa) Informative - Someone is - Phishing Emails
PLYMOUTH, PENNSYLVANIA -- And I am not biting on their bait. If you are receiving emails from Wells Fargo, Chase Bank, Ebay, First Third Bank, PayPal, or others asking for your personal financial information, this is a "phishing" email and it is a scam. Wells Fargo and these other companies are not sending these emails. And, when the proper IT security authorities at the companies are alerted, they do something about it. Chase Bank and I had a website shut down within 24 hours one time after I had contacted someone in their IT security department about a "phishing' email I had received and about the "mirror or shadow" site. If you really want to do something about this sort of thing and you have some time, when you receive these sort of emails contact their Internet fraud department such as spoof@paypal and alert them and the companies involved will try to do something about stopping the fraudulent phishing emails.
