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 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!

Hello I keep getting messages from a number saying “ATT FREE MSG: Congratulations to 2 lucky users! Today’s winners of our daily raffle are: Jennifer, David and you, Jerry! Claim now.” Keep in mind I’m not even subscribed to anything from at&t and my name is not jerry any help?

As noted, they are scam texts. They send them to every possible number. You can’t stop them, just delete them or report them as spam to your carrier.

Do you think these amateur scammers have an AT&T Scammer's Conference to come up with the next lame attempt?

Hey JeClear, your scammers stepped a level up giving you specific amounts, mine were non committed. They need to go back to the Fourth World where they can practice on their own kind.

Yes, it’s a scam and not from ATT. Don’t click any links.
