An elderly friend received this email from supposedly AT&T Support:

statement. Please keep your secure information updated.

Is this legit? It sounds kinda like clickbait.

While AT&T employees do look at forum posts from time to time, we are here to represent the forum with our experiences as customers and do not represent AT&T in any official capacity with our responses and do so on our own time unpaid and off the clock. As employees we are not rewarded nor compensated to participate in these forums This forum is comprised of regular customers to communicate with other customers to offer advice and share experiences same as any other user Although there is a small team of customer care specialists that monitor the forums the sheer volume of posts are simply too many posts for these agents to respond to each one of them.

It’s a phishing scam. Tell your friend to trash it.
