Is this a fraudulent email?

I received an email from this address:  myAT&T <[email scrubbed]>. The text of the email is below.  Is it an email actually sent by AT&T?

This particular e-mail has malicious intent.  The forum software scrubbed out the from address you provided, but it probably wasn't ATT-MAIL.COM (which is the correct one) and that link doesn't go to AT&T or to their provider of identity security services (Experian) so it's not valid.  Delete this e-mail.

AT&T is sending out one, and it should have a link to Experian along with a code to use at Experian to get a year of monitoring at no charge.  It will look something like the one shown in the below article:
