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.

    I replied to Matt Unusual Sign-in activity on my Samsung tablet and I can't receive my e-mails. Can I download something to stop this?
