eBay and AT&T bundle deal

I’ve been offered if I pay 3 months of phone in advance they will cut my phone bill in 1/2 got 24 months. I had to put the amount and an eBay card.  Call AT&T and give them the numbers.  Is anyone else getting this deal or am I being scammed ?

AT&T will never ask you to pay with an eBay card, this does not sound like a legitimate promotion at all.

Re: eBay and AT&T bundle deal

I got a similar offer.  I was to buy a $594.00 ebay card.  They call AT&T and provide billing with a provided authorization number and the ebay card numbers.  At which point my 594.00 is gone.  This was suppose to pay for my acct for the next 6 months.  I would then have my billing reduced for the next 18 months to 99.00.  This would be less than 1/2 current payment.   

Being unsure of the offer I tried to verify the offer by talking to ATT via phone numbers provided on ATT website.  Talked to 2 different people and one of them said he had had other calls and his supervisor never heard of the program.   

I AM PASSING ON THIS.  IT DOES NOT PASS THE SMELL TEST HERE.

Re: eBay and AT&T bundle deal

Had the same thing happen today.  I knew it was a scam.  What I want to know is how did they have my name, number, address and account number???  Trying to make them seem legitimate.   An eBay gift card???   That's a big ole red flag!!  I sure hope people don't fall for this.
