You did the right thing by not clicking the link. Definitely a scam, but needless to say not from AT&T. The scammers appear to be from Ecuador.

Do you know how I can remove my number for their database? Or should I get AT&T to block them?

I have successfully used this technique to stop spam texts on my AT&T account several times and it works like a charm every single time if you follow all the steps.

I currently am employed by AT&T and I have never seen a text notification with that layout, I would say that this is a phishing scam and to not click the link. For your devices & your own security.
