If you lose your Wells Fargo credit card, you don’t have to lose your money to a thief as well. Whether you’ve misplaced your card or you know for a fact that someone lifted it from you, Wells Fargo has made reporting these incidents quick and easy. You should call 1 (800) 642-4720 immediately to let the customer support specialist know that your credit card has been lost or stolen.

You Have Other Options Available To You As Well

One of the most common ways that a stolen credit card is discovered is through suspicious activity. Wells Fargo has created multiple methods of contact to help every customer be able to report specific forms of suspicious activities that they encounter while using the wide variety of banking products.

Here are all of the contact numbers that you need to know in Canada or US.

  • To report suspicious online activity: 1 (866) 867-5568
  • To report suspected instances of identity theft: 1 (800) 869-3557

Wells Fargo has created a comprehensive country by country contact list so that you can quickly contact a customers support specialist through the included link.

What If I Don’t Have Access to a Telephone?

In some locations, your mobile phone may not have a cellular signal. You may not have access to a landline telephone either. In these circumstances, you can still contact Wells Fargo about your lost credit card. The best method would be to use their secure email server to send the customer service department a message that they can use to block the account. You’ll need to create or sign into an account to do this.

You can also report your credit or debit card as stolen or lost from your online banking platform. As with the secure email option, you’ll need to sign into your online dashboard. From there, you’ll be able to directly notify Wells Fargo that there is an issue with your account.

A stolen or lost credit card is something to take very seriously. With the toll free numbers listed above and the secure online notification options that are available, Wells Fargo has made it a simple process to protect your financial interests. Take the steps needed to protect your lost or stolen credit card today so that you won’t have liabilities for fraudulent purchases.
