Jessie Lesmeister, owner of Integrity Locksmith has been solving complex problems in his company for over 20 years. He’s dealt with many complex problems in his business, but never one like this.
He received a text asking him if he made any purchases at the Best Buy in Miami. When he replied “no”, he immediately received a phone call from Wells Fargo with whom he has been doing small business banking since decades.
According to the person on the telephone, they caught the wire transfer just in time.
Lesmeister explained, “He sent me advanced access codes which I repeated to him.”
Jessie felt scammed as soon as he got off the telephone. The Wells Fargo in Golden Valley was closed.
A sophisticated wire transfer fraud resulted in the loss of nearly $22,000 instantly. He filed complaints with the police, FBI and FTC as well as with Wells Fargo. However, he never heard from any of them.

It can all happen within a few seconds after working so hard for the right.
Bao Vang, of the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota & North Dakota says that scammers continue to improve.
We see every day a wide range of strategies and tactics used to steal money from someone or their identity.
Businesses can report scams to the BBB via its scam tracker site, as well as local authorities.
We can now keep track of all your experiences, so that when you and other consumers or businesses visit our site, they will also be able to learn from yours.” Vang.
Wells Fargo has stated that it never contacts or texts clients in order to obtain the code for completing a wire transfer. Our representatives have spoken directly to the client about their case. However, information regarding them cannot be disclosed due to concerns over privacy.
FOX 9 was sent the following message:
When a client reports that they’ve been scammed, we do a thorough investigation and then share our findings. It is important to raise awareness about scams and the fact that most wire transfers cannot be reversed, even when the scammer has been reported immediately.
