Scam robocall from fake AT&T

[ Edited ]

I received a robo call on my cell from 800-*** claiming to be AT&T, offering $100 off my bill if I went to "iloveATT.com" & registered. I suspected fraud. My browser came up with this msg about that site: 

"Google Chrome has blocked access to iloveatt.com. This website has been reported as a phishing website. Phishing websites are designed to trick you into disclosing yr login, password or other sensitive information by disguising themselves as other websites you may trust.
So: warning to all , don't be taken in if you receive this call.

Re: Scam robocall from fake AT&T

Hello BCG,
You're right, that website is a phishing site. Thank you for the warning! There is already a post regarding this found here.  You can read more about these types of scams, here

If you feel that, or have reason to believe, your information was compromised contact AT&T Customer Care immediately.

Re: Scam robocall from fake AT&T

But how do you get them to stop calling???
I get at least 3-4 calls a week, often at totally inappropriate times. 

Is there some place I can send the 800 numbers they are using so at least someone at ATT can put an end to this?? Verizon has such a service.

Re: ATT SCAM

Anyone been getting REPEATED automated calls from "youloveatt" offering a $100 reward?

If so, how do you stop it?

I've been getting calls on my cell phone every other day for weeks.

Re: Scam robocall from fake AT&T

I am disappointed that AT&T will not do more to help customers avaoid robocalls. There are apps available but they are not compatable with AT&T, e.g. Nomorobo.

Unfortunately that's not from AT&T. That is a scam to gain your personal information to use for fraud purposes. I would definitely ignore those messages.

Re: Scam robocall from fake AT&T

I get the same thing, different 800# every day and every day they leave a message. Up to 12 calls and even used/spoofed the actual At&T #.

 

This is the only robocall I get directly on my cell. I have used an alias for years so this is new. The alias gets robocalls and they are ditched for free using youmail.com after seeing 800notes.com users touting it.

 

AT&T is too cheap to approve the govt prize winners solution NOMOROBO system.

 

I am sure this is going to build by the same scammers who are doing this round. They are directly targeting and KNOW this is an AT&T number.

 

Thanks for NOT caring AT&T!!! APPROVE THE NOMOROBO system for at&T!!!!

ATT telemarketing via unregistered 800-1*** promoting $100 Bill Credit markeing program.

[ Edited ]

For the past month my wife and i have been receiving recorded calls via an unregistered number (800-***) on our cell phones promoting ATT's "$100 Bill Credit" marketing plan.

Many of these calls come at inopportune times. In fact my wife was expecting an important call from her doctor and so answered one of these calls while driving only to be ticketed by a policeman.   I'd like to know what genius at ATT thought that it was justified and that it was a good idea to randomly call anyone at anytime to support their marketing goals.

The only way to eliminate these calls is to call ATT and tell them to take you off of their call list. I used to be with ATT but left because of the poor service. I don't know how many other persons may have been inconvenienced and feel as i do, but I for one would NEVER CONSIDER going back to ATT so at least in my case, their marketing plan is a dismal failure.

ATTSupportplan.com???

Did anyone else receive an awkward message telling us that our ATT provider was going to give us 100 dollars once we logged in at ATTSUPPORTPLAN.com? 

 

Its a phishing phone number/website, don't go to it and certainly don't put your information in.

 

I'm just wondering if anyone else got the same telephone number. If they did - our information has been leaked and that is a problem.

Received a call from 800-***. Recorded message saying I was receiving a $21 reward from AT&T for being a customer. I should go to ATT21.com and register my information to receive the reward. Info from a search claims that this number is owned by Verizon. Could find nothing to support my belief that this is a scam. Couldn't find anything to say that is was legitimate. Erring on the side of safety, I'm not going to register my info with this website. If AT&T wants to give me a lousy $21, I think ** will freeze over before I see the $21.

Phishing shop at www.att23.com

[ Edited ]

Just received a call with a pre-recorded message saying I'd been awarded $23 off my AT&T bill.  All I need do is go to www. att23.com, log in, and claim it.  Certainly sounds like a credential phishing scam.
