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:

  • AT&T Free Msg: We will Lock Your Device Soon. Please clear spam messages. Scan now
  • (Your Name), we accidentally overcharged your phone bill the past 4 months. Please accept our apology and this iPhone 11 as a compensation
  • AT&T Free Msg: bill processed, thanks (my name). Here's a little gift for you
  • AT&T Free Msg: (Insert Name)! You came in 2nd in the Connecticut AT&T SWEEPSTAKES! Claim your bounty here
  • Dear Loyal AT&T Customer, please take this 2 minute survey and claim $100

What you can do:

  • Report the message to us:
    1. Forward the message to 7726 (SPAM).
    2. Then submit the number once you are prompted. 

 Thanks,

The AT&T Community Team

Do you really have to ask?

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

SCAM.

@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.

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!
