The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake or phishing SBCGlobal ATT website, which will attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If SBCGlobal ATT users attempt to sign into the phishing website with their SBCGlobal ATT usernames and passwords, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts. The hijacked SBCGlobal ATT accounts will then be used by cybercriminals fraudulently.

Remember, if you receive email messages like these, please go directly to your email account instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is something wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing in. And, if you were tricked by one of these phishing scams, please change your password immediately before your SBCGlobal ATT account is hijacked.

For victims whose accounts have already been hijacked, they should contact SBCGlobal ATT for help.

    Here is another scam:

    "Date: Monday, April 16, 2018 10:47 AM

    From: att Online Services <customersupport@att.net>

    There has been a request to cancel your att account.

    The request was received from your att account on april 15, 2018 22:20 GMT.

    Sometimes these requests are made in error. If this deactivation was not requested by you, we ask that you submit your password in reply to this email.

    Once the current password on the account is verified the deactivation request will be canceled and your account will remain active.

    Be advised, once an account is deactivated it cannot be recovered.

    Thank You,

    The att Team"
