Scammers are impersonating Wells Fargo Bank.

According to WKVI, several people have received emails from the address security@wellsfargo. The subject line reads "Wells Fargo notification." The email looks official, and talks about security updates for the online notification system.

The scam occurs when viewers click a link, which the email claims is to validate a funds transfer into your account.

Anyone who receives this email can call the Wells Fargo Online Banking Division at 1-800-956-4442, or email reportphish@wellsfargo.com.
