Wow these scams are getting more sophisticated. I read that and couldn't believe how out of the loop I am.
It is called phishing. Scammers send millions of emails to random people, Very low % actually open the link and fill in their info. Then the scammers use this info to transfer money. Generally the email lists are not targeted so a very big % of the receivers don't use the service or bank that is being spammed. Ignore it or you can report it to wells fargo.
