Wachovia officials say it's their policy to have customers verify any changes to their accounts or personal information by logging on to their secure web site at www.wachovia.com.

Wachovia officials pointed out the address that is referenced in this email is phony.

Note: the email link in the message has a "0" (zero) in the word "Wachovia" instead of the letter "O," which is a dead giveaway that it is a bogus web address.
