Att.net free message...use four digit code??

I just received a text that reads:

att.net free message: Please use this 4-digit code to complete your mobile validation: 1999. This is a single use code.


Why an I getting this? I didn’t get a new phone or any new services. Is this fraud?

Hi there @Suemee,

Thank you for reaching out and bringing this to our attention.  I can understand your concerns when getting a message like this, especially since you or an authorized user haven’t made any changes recently.  I have some information I would like to share with you.

I recommend logging into your MyATT app on a different device and see if there haven’t been any changes.  If there has not been any changes I would report the message by forwarding the message to 7726(SPAM).  I found a Forums Post which has more information on this subject.  It will inform you how to stop messages like this to stop sending them to your phone.

I hope this helps, have a good day!
