  1. Me and my husband got the same email saying that he’s originally from Idaho and the person that says there’s a manager from Wells Fargo doesn’t even exist none of those people on that email exist because I went to the Wells Fargo branch where I’m located and they pull up the employee directory and none of those people are in the directory which means they’re not even an employee’s Wells Fargo Banking Company so it is a scam or ignored all of his emails that they send you

  2. Dang…thought I actually was out of this steep hole I’m in for once. Thanks to these reviews…ill continue on .Thanks for y’alls reviews they saved me from any further investigation 😁

  3. I just have received the same email today. I’m pretty sure that they are scam artists. Because that is none existing funds. My bank account is with Wells Fargo Bank. If that was true. My local branch would informed me about it. Please, don’t send money to anyone. Please don’t believe any of these things. They are only looking for money. Our money.

  4. I just recieved this very email today. 3/9/18. Cant this be tracked and something done about these scammers??

    1. Emails can be tracked but the complicated trail they leave behind is a multinational one. You would need cooperation across nations and companies in order to track the network address and who was using it at the time. Even then the scammer would be using stealth techniques to cover his tracks. Bearing in mind the only offence they are committing at this stage is spamming, it is unlikely that law enforcement agencies would take this course of action.

  5. It is so shameful that people, instead of working hard to provide for their families or satisfy a greedy desire, that they prey on others who no doubt are low income families. Their judgement awaits them. Be careful everyone, it’s a scam

  6. I knew this was a scam, it had scam written all over it, its not the way real banks operate. Too bad there are so many unsuspecting citizens who get taken in by such garbage.
