Good eye, you're absolutely right - this is not a real AT&T email. Smiley Happy

You think you have "false billing", I have really false billing.  I just received an e-Mail from "AT&T Customer Care" stating I have a "Total Balance Due: $1958.55".

 

Now that would really upset me - except I haven't had AT&T telephone service since 1974.  I don't have an AT&T cell phone, and AT&T has never served my rural area. 

 

Now that is REALLY "False billing for service I DO NOT HAVE!!!" - but I know it is simply phishing.
