Dear Wells Forgo customer,

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your wellsfargo account account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the  wellsfargo network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

To restore your account access , please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

1. Login to your  wellsfargo account. In case you are not enrolled yet for Internet Banking, you will have to use your Social Security Number as both your Personal ID and Password and fill in the required information, including your name and account number.

2. Review your recent account history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check your account profile to make sure no changes have been made. If any unauthorized activity has taken place on your account, report to wells fargo immediately.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire Wells Fargo system. Thank your for your prompt attention to this matter.

Wells Fargo Team.
