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.

I received a message that I came in third in the AT&T Connecticut sweepstakes.  Are you or did you run such a sweepstakes?  I believe this is a scam/fraud.

Known scam. Reports are being consolidated in one thread it seems. Also they have an official report spam process to forward from the phone that is mentioned by an official post.

I have received random texts that claim I have won some award, see below. I don't live in Connecticut never been there. I don't have any account with AT&T. Is this a scam?

AT&T Free Msg: George! You came 1st in the Connecticut AT&T REWARDS! Claim the bounty here: r4fzc.info/Xa3OAbn0oJ, or show this code at AT&T store 1z18459

I received the same exact message today, on an ATT COU phone. Only difference is obviously my name was on it and it was first prize. For sure a phishing/scam.

AT&T Free Msg: xXxxxx! You came 1st in the Connecticut AT&T SWEEPSTAKES! Claim the iPad Pro here: r4fzc.info/X9YMpl8ckm, or show this code at AT&T store 1z43488

wanted to see how many others received the same message. I am also in FL!

Hi Makenzie, you couldn't possibly have come in second, I came in second! Seriously, I got the same message. I assume they want you to clink on the link in the message so they can take you to an unknown website to try to sell you something, and/or distribute your name to thousands of spam sites. I've never opened one, so not sure, but definitely a scam.

I received 2 texts recently about a contest I did not know I applied for. I think this is a scam but it also says to take the message to an AT&T store with a code of: 1z33208. I reported the last number as a scam to the AT&T text scam number, as I usually do. I received another text today from this number:

469-560-6506. Please advise me on this text message if it is from at&t or not. thank you.

It is a very common scam going around now. Don't respond to anything and just trash it. Area code 469 is the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, but that could be spoofed as well. I don't even bother to report them anymore, but I get very few spam/scam calls or messages.
