AT&T Free Msg


AT&T Free Msg

I just received this text from number 6838:

AT&T Free Msg: We have important information about AT&T account ending in 9382. Are you the responsible party? Reply YES or NO.


I called AT&T and the operator though it could possibly legit but she wasn't sure. Is this a legitimate text or a phishing scam?  Thanks for any help.

Re: AT&T Free Msg

Hello @caitriel.


If there was a legitimate message to impart to you, the representative you spoke to would have been able to pass that along. We encourage you to alert AT&T by forwarding the suspicious text to 7726 on your device. Messages forwarded to 7726 are free. They don't count toward your text plan. Thanks for reaching out to us for clarification!
