received a call about my Direct TV Satellite positioning.
Yesterday, I received a call from a local number, claiming to be a rep from Direct TV. Caller knew that I had Direct TV through my AT&T account, and claimed to be calling to inform that the satellite linked to my receiver was going to be repositioned. I suspect this was a phishing call, because the caller ID showed a number with the same first 3 digits as my home phone number, which is consistent with scam calls. Additionally, caller identified himself with a common American first name, but had a very thick Indian accent. (Another scam indicator.)
I would expect to get any notification from Direct TV about a satellite positioning change from a phone number that identifies as Direct TV, and also as a message passed through my receiver and displayed on my tv. Am i right on this?
If i get another suspicious call, i will report the number to Direct TV directly.
