Unwanted text

[ Edited ]

I received a text from d****@msn.com.  My number is known to only a few people.  How can I find out how this sender obtained my number?

@JJSG14 - Sorry to hear you got an unwanted text!! I just got a similar sender yesterday myself so this is definitely a spam message. You can send it off for investigation by forwarding the message to 7726 (SPAM) as a text message. You will then receive a free message asking you to provide the sender's number. You would provide the email as that is the sender. You will then receive a second text message thanking you for providing the info. Smiley Happy Hope that helps!

Do not respond directly to a spam message. If you think you received a spam message, please forward the message, on your wireless phone, to mobilityabuse@att.com so we can start an investigation. You can also learn more about how to report unsolicited and unwanted messages and ads at Report spam text messages.
