Beware of "AT&T Action Required - Problem With Your Profile" Phishing Scam

The email message below: "ACTION REQUIRED: Problem with your profile," is a phishing scam, and was not sent by AT&T. The spoofed email message contains a fake AT&T HTML form with the name: CBIL_X007EH_PROFILE.html, designed to trick the recipients into entering their AT&T MemberID, Password, email address, phone number, date of birth, Social Security Number, Mother's Maiden Name and credit card information. Once the information is entered on the form and submitted, it will then be sent to the cyber-criminals who are behind the phishing scam.
