A man came to my house and left me a note with this number on it, urging me to call the number within 24 hours to avoid foreclosure on my home. I called, and while the person on the other end of the phone CLAIMED to be from Wells-Fargo, I am convinced that this is a scam. I don't have a mortgage with Wells-Fargo (though I do have one with another bank) and he wanted my account number and SSN even though I do not deal with that bank. I don't want to give out that information, and I wish I hadn't given my name because he used my name over and over again in the conversation. It was kind of creepy. I think this is one of those places that preys on unsuspecting people and gets them to give out information because they are afraid something went wrong with their home loan. Be very, very careful when calling this number, or accepting calls from it. If it is legitimate, then some poor person who should have received the note that was given to me just had their home foreclosed upon for not calling within 24 hours. It's either a scam or a very, very shoddy mortgage company that doesn't even know what properties they mortgage!

This was not a phone, this was a certified letter, two, one in my name and one in my husbands name. I had to sign for them. I says we are over $2,000. past due payments. Not true. we are current. It comes from WF, Temecula, CA, They tell us to call 800 569 4287.
18004161472 they called my husband asking for a credit card to make a payment or partial payment on the mortgage, my husband called me on the other phone to ask me when i made the payment and that wells fargo was calling, we are in the process of a loan modification therefore i had a number a extension and a name of a wells fargo rep when my husband ask the rep to give him an extension she told him there is no extension number just to call the 1800 number and make a payment. yes you call the number and its a exact same recording as wells fargo with couple of differences from the 1866 number on the statement and by fact i know you cannot make partial payments on the phone, and when you are on a loan modification process your call gets forward atomatically to that department. btw the call was recevied at 830 est on a sat wells fargo its close at that time. so scam or not in my case it was a pishing call!!!
this phone number pretends to be wells fargo and know some personal information
It is a Wells Fargo Number. the other is 480 518-9000 among others. It's actually from Loss Mitigation. Loan mods. Try not to screw people out of help just b/c you are to proud or stupid to attempt a Loan Modification.
If it is a real number than why would WF have someone drive up in a car and hand a very unprofessional piece of paper to me and tell me to call this number. I called the number and told them to send me the request in writing from WF. Dial tone......
