Scam: "AT&T Free Msg: You came in ... in the Connecticut AT&T SWEEPSTAKES"

I received a text that says "AT&T Free Msg: Makenzie! You came in 2nd in the Connecticut AT&T SWEEPSTAKES! Claim your bounty here : (website link), or show this code at AT&T story (code)"

I do not live in Connecticut so I assume this is a scam but just to be sure.

It’s a scam.

AT&T : THOMAS! You came 1st in the Connecticut AT&T SWEEPSTAKES! Claim the iPhone12 here: q5fmv.info/NvYtyX97Po, or show this code at AT&T store 1z22994

Got this last night. Glad I won, just hope I don’t have to drive to from Wisconsin to Connecticut to claim it. Gas, tolls, lodging and food would be more than the IPhone is worth. Stupid Russian hackers

Congratulations Thomas! I am envious, I got 2nd along many others.

My clues that this is a scam are that the message referenced me by my first name (none of the legitimate messages has my name) and second I did not get the usual nice Blue Globe AT&T logo that I get with my legitimate AT&T Free Msgs (the source of messages is in my contacts)

It has been reported numerously on this forum for the past few days. I think almost everyone has gotten it. I got it, too.

This is a user to user forum. I am a user, just like almost everyone else on the site.

Bummer, I only came in in 3rd place.  All they want to give me is a new iPad.  🤣

I didn't get the text.  I can't decide if I should be relieved or offended.
