Dear Wells Fargo customer,

In order to be prepared for the smart card upgrade on Visa and MasterCard debit and credit cards and to avoid problems with our ATM services, we have recently introduced additional security measures and upgraded our software.

The security upgrade will be effective immediately and requires our customers to update their ATM card information. Please update your information by following the link given below.

Thank you,
Wells Fargo Security Department.

No, it's a phishing email, in your email, hover your cursor over the http://www.wellsfargo.com/biz/products/online_banking/overview.jhtml link, look in the status bar and it will probably have a different address like http://123.123.123/xxxxx/xxxxxxetcetc

Which is the phishers fake bank url, where people will login with their details, thus giving the phishers the accout owners login details, with which they can rip them off.

Please forward that email to Wells Fargo and they will get the spoof site taken care of- it isn't baitable and not a normal target of fake site killers.
