SPAM - I think.

I rec'd an email, in the Spam folder, which said:

 

ATT Security Team***

SUSAN, your password has been changed.


Unusual sign-in activity



Hi SUSAN,
We detected something unusual about a recent sign-in to the AT&T account*** on Monday, June 19, 2017 at 07:34am. 
To help keep you safe, we required an extra security challenge.


Sign-in details:
Operating system: Windows
Browser: Chrome
IP address: 74.204.10.15
Estimated location: Brandenburgische Str 14, 55278 Hahnheim Germany




If you did this,
you can safely disregard this email.
If you're not sure this was you, a malicious user might have your password. Please review your recent activity and we'll help you take corrective action..



Thanks,
AT&T ® Official Security Team

 

Since I don't have an email address as described, I am treating this as spam.

Just wondered if anyone else was getting this.

Susan

It's spam, phishing!

 

All the links you provided above are all attempting to send mail to some place or someone called ***, whoever they are.  It's certainly not an ATT .net or .com address.

It is getting more and more common. Have to really look at the email address and sometimes even the headers to be sure. Hope it all works out for you. Spam is such a issue now days it seems. Always someone crooked and dishonest. Just think if they used their abilities to do good what a world it would be. Sad indeed.
