How to handle AT&T’s texting scams
AT&T customers keep receiving scamming text messages, here are ways to handle it.
VICTORIA, Texas – Many AT&T customers have received several scam text messages, starting at 5:00 a.m. (central standard time).
The messages vary from FEDEX delivery status, Amazon gift cards, clickable money compensation, Walgreens account updates, and other shipment notices.
Do not reply or answer any suspicious emails, text messages, or calls.
Reporting fraud via text message will not count towards texting limits and they are free.
Here are the steps to take when reporting fraud:
