Re: Spam texts

Hello there @SaraLynn!


Allow us to assist. We advise to forward all suspicious texts to 7726 (SPAM). Messages forwarded to 7726 are free of charge for AT&T customers and won't count toward your texting limits.


If you're not able to view the number, please to forward the entire message to abuse@att.net.


Finally, make sure to report those suspicious texts to the FTC.


We hope this info helps.
