Scamming Email?

Just received a email claiming to be from AT & T, the "subject line" has mistakes as in "Your ATampT; wireless bill is ready to view" the only thing we have from AT & T is our cells.  Isn't wireless the computer service? another redflag was the billing date, we do not pay our bill till late in the month.

Re: False billing for service I DO NOT HAVE!!!

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.

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

 

To report spam, forward it to abuse@att.net. When you forward the email, please be sure to include the full header. Without it, we can't tell where the email came from.

Yep, sounds like a scam. As long as you didn't reply or click any links, you should be fine. 

 

As an aside, "wireless service" refers to cell phones.
