Econintersect:  A member of the GEI staff has received another scam email from a "phisherman."  This time the masquerade was behind the mask of Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC).  The email requested that a link provided be followed "so we can complete the verification of your Wells Fargo information details."  A customer number was provided, but the recipient of the e-mail is not nor ever has been a Wells Fargo customer.
