Don't fall for this new banking scam
We recently received this email with important information about banking scams from Jeff from Connecticut. Here's what he had to say.
I am reaching out to you regarding a suspicious banking email that I received recently. I followed your previous advice and refrained from clicking on any links in the email. I also checked the email address and found that it was not a Wells Fargo address. However, the email looked exactly like it came from my bank, which is quite concerning. I believe it is crucial to inform your readers about this banking email scam so they can avoid falling victim to it.
