Re: Spam from allegedly AT&T

Hi @SimpleScorpio,


Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We'd love to help you with this issue. If you didn't request a temporary PIN, don't click on anything from the text/message. This is likely tied to fraud, and is a method used by spammers to acquire your information. 


We encourage you to visit our Fraud & Security resources page, to view what options we have available regarding this issue. Focus on the Call & text security section of the page. If you have any further questions, please let us know!
