Scam

I keep getting text messages from numbers beginning with 469 that I won ATT Conn. contest. I know they are a scam however, since the numbers change except for the 469 I do not know how to eliminate more from coming in. I block those that come in. I have ATT prepaid plan. I wanted to report these plus see if there is a way to keep them from reaching me.

The numbers are spoofed so reporting them or blocking them is an exercise in futility.

I received a text message from a 949 area code that my account information was changed. Anyone know anything about this? Is it a scam?

@rmbush1216 Since you didn’t share the actual text can’t say for sure but it’s probably a scam. Legitimate ATT texts come from a short code, not a regular phone number.
