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.

Text says I came in 3rd place and have won an iPad Pro.  Is this a scam?

I got the same one a couple of times. How is it that AT&T can’t stop scams that have to do with their own service on their service lines?! 🙄

Those behind the scams are usually in a foreign country.

Definitely a scam I got the same but 3rd place and at&t push msgs are usually  6-8 #’s example 611 is phone repair. Then they ask for a card # a total red flag and scam!!!

Total scam I got this as well but stated I came in 3rd place. Also when att send push messages they usually use 4-6 numbered messages, example 411 is phone repair. Then last they ask for a card number that’s the biggest red flag anything that’s a “give away” is supposed to be completely free? Good luck don’t fall for it please stay away!

@CarleenaM Never respond to messages like this because it is a total scam. @JeffinerdSki  There is a number you can report it to but it probably won't do any good. This scam is hitting all kinds of providers so it's very difficult to stop because the source is a moving target.

I did not click the link, and I do not have at&t. I just wanted you to be aware of this message.

That is a very common scam going around now. Just delete and don't respond or click on any links.

Numerous posts on the same subject.

It's weird being the same age as old people.  😊

I guess they are trying a new one.  I just received a text from (501) 646-6645

ATT Free Msg: Congrats to 2 lucky users! Today's winners of our daily draw are: Ethan Perez and you, Maurene! Claim now: [link]

Crazy part is there are so many red flags in this message:

  1. ATT Free Msg: INSTEAD of  AT&T Free Msg:
  2. Daily draw?
  3. Sending me another name

They tried it!
