However, each time a new credit card arrives, this message is pasted across the front:
You MUST activate your card NOW to begin using your
card. CALL 1-866-537-8424 from your home phone.
So what's a person to do? Why, call from some other phone, of course. But do not use the telephone of any friend or relative because you do not want Wells Fargo to think you live there either, right? The easiest remedy--and one we use--is to wait until our next trip. Then we call Wells Fargo from our hotel room and thus activate the card.
