Dear Customer,

Wells Fargo Online is constantly working to increase security for all Online Banking users. To ensure the integrity of our online payment system, we periodically review accounts.


Your account might be place on restricted status. Restricted accounts continue to receive payments, but they are limited in their ability to send or withdraw funds.
To lift up this restriction, you need to login into your account (with your username or SSN and your password),then you have to complete our verification process. You must confirm your credit card details and your billing information as well. All restricted accounts have their billing information unconfirmed, meaning that you may no longer send money from your account until you have updated your billing information on file.
To initiate the update confirmation process. To update your WellsFargo records click on the following link:

Please do not respond to this e-mail as your reply will not be received.

Regards,
Security Department
Wells Fargo Securities.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
