If you have been receiving a fishy text from a number you do not recognize stating your device may be locked soon, have a free gift or asking you to check your bill with a link shortener, we highly recommend not opening it.
Here are a few examples of ones you might be receiving, that you should definitely NOT open:
The AT&T Community Team
Do you really have to ask?
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
ACE - Professor
I have received ones for Lowe’s, USPS, Walmart, and AT&T for taking the survey.
@Obstructive well yeah I kinda had to ask cause I'm so broke atm I was slightly hoping it wasn't...
I did report it to AT&T as a text scam a few minutes after posting that question though cause I knew it really had to be..😡🙄😖
Thanks to all for responding though.
I hear ya, but if you are down on your luck financially, that is the most important time to NOT fall for a scam.
This is what I just got. Scan or not a scam?
Yes!! My issue is it prompted on AT&T's official website where I pay m bill it prompted on my screen right after paying a bill it asked me to specifically take a survey by and for AT&T to rate my experience and the ease of the auto-pay and site use! I received a watch and earbuds that costed $5.95 each. This was just a ploy to get my card numbers and have them stored. The company goes by UNIQPRO and says it's located in Clifton, NJ. I only went for this because it was on AT&T's website itself and popped up immediately after I paid my bill! It seems like AT&T is in cohoots with this grift!
