Is 877.285.1205 a Legit ATT Telephone Number?

Would you share this Question and Answer with others?

Over the past few weeks, I have received emails from an att-mail.com email address like the one below claiming I should call 877-285-1205. I want to know if the telephone number is owned by AT&T.

I'm not sure if the telephone number is legit or not because I cannot find it on AT&T's website. But, if you have doubts about an email message which appears to have been sent from AT&T, give them a call at 1.888.855.2338. The telephone number above was taken from AT&T's website at: https://tech360.att.com/att/contact-us/

Also, the att-mail.com domain, which the emails came from, is owned by AT&T, but it doesn't necessarily means the emails you were sent came from AT&T. Remember, email messages can be spoofed. Spoofed emails can be sent by cybercriminals from their email addresses and then be made to appear as if they came from AT&T email addresses when the recipients receive them.

    I called AT&T and this is not a legitimate phone number for them. This email was received after a suspicious phone call from MY OWN NUMBER with a supposed AT&T fraud representative on the other end. As soon as he asked me to repeat the text message he was sending me; I felt uncomfortable. He said my account had been hacked and someone was buying two new iPhone XR phones on my account.
