Why did I recieve this?

I received an AT&T credit score of 307 but I never applied for a credit card and only use a debit card for any purchases. I don't even have any services from AT&T under my name. I also tried to look up the reference number and the order number but nothing was found

Re: Why did I recieve this?

How did you receive it? I’ve never heard of an ATT credit score or if such a thing exists, ATT sharing it with anyone.

Re: Why did I recieve this?

@isaac153968  Unless you have a AT&T branded credit card from CitiBank that offers free credit scores (like many credit cards are offering), I don't know where that would be coming from.  Nothing to do with a wireless (celllar) account as far as I know.

 

If you don't have once of those, it sounds kind of scammy...

Re: Why did I recieve this?

I received a letter that thanked me for applying for "AT&T communications
or entertainment services/products". There's also no contact information
anywhere.

No return information, only says Carol Stream IL 60197-5093. Other than that no way to reply.

It's possible that that is an internal number AT&T uses to score potential cell phone customers, so someone might have tried to open an AT&T account using your info. 

 

Keep an eye your credit report.
