How can I stop Mint from attempting to log-in to closed accounts?

I receive an email every single month letting me know that "We're having a problem connecting with Wells Fargo". I am told that "We should be able to get you back on track pretty quickly" and that "The easiest way to fix it is to double-check and re-enter the most current login information you have for them". 

The account is closed. The account has been closed for years. The account will never be re-opened. It is dead. It has ceased to be. I cannot log-in to change my password. I do not have a username. I do not have a password.

And yet, I receive an email between the 24th and the 28th of the month, every single month, saying the exact same thing.

"We're having a problem connecting with Wells Fargo"

"Hmm. We can't seem to connect with your Wells Fargo account"

"Has your Wells Fargo login email or password changed?"

"Have they updated their security measures?"

"Do they require additional security questions?"

How would I know?

I have tried the "change the account to open and then back to closed" trick. It does not work. It has never worked. The emails keep coming.

Please let me know how to permanently close my Wells Fargo account. Thank you.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
