    Mine was a txt from 1(410) 100-003. 300 dollar payment failed. Call AT&T 707 661 8029. Auto payed 2 weeks prior. So they know my carrier and my phone number and the payment amount which changes every month. What else do they know and how did they get the info?

  • July 29, 2020 at 12:43 PM by an anonymous user from: Davis, California, United States

    Same scam, different numbers for me. My payment is made automatically-and it's not time for the payment to be made, so it made me immediately suspicious. Mine reads:

  • July 27, 2020 at 11:15 PM by an anonymous user from: San Diego, California, United States

    I got the same text. Knowing my account is on autopay, and has been for YEARS without issue, I DID NOT call the number; instead, I copied the phone number and googled it - which led me here. I’ll simply block the number (I know, usually useless, but worth a try), and delete the text. And hope that it doesn’t turn into a re-occurring thing. :/

Never before had AT&T given me an area code 707 callback number, this was the first clue. No acct # listed, no amount shown. Obvious scam, but I immediately checked with the real AT&T.

    When I called the number, a voice said, please enter your 16-digit number. Since I have more than one payment, from more than one card, going to more than one AT&T transaction, this lack of specificity alerted me.

    Hello, I received message also. By any chance did any of you that received this message get an offer from AT&T about a month ago, offering to waive the past due balance on your account. if you paid 25% of the past due balance by 29th of June. The reason I'm asking is cause I'm having issues with them I paid the 25 % now they won't give me the credit. They keep telling me that it's under review and they will contacte shortly it's been a month to the day. I'm wondering if it's a group text where they are not gonna give the credit.

    Same as everyone else, and received on the same day as the others, July 26, 2020. Text saying:

    FRM:AT&T

    SUBJ:Unsuccessful payment.Call

    7076618029

    MSG:1628

    Don't call the number, and don't texted back. Ignore, block and delete.

    Yep! We received the same text message. My payment cleared my bank a week ago. ALWAYS check these things out before you just call back. They are fishing for your banking information!

    Got the same scam.

    Thanks for the warnings. I received this message today and have now blocked from future texts.

    It's a scam. An IVR scam at that! I guess all those scammers in India are asleep right now so they let a synthesized voice IVR system take credit card numbers while they rest.

    Received a Text Message from "AT&T" about an "Unsuccessful payment" and to call this number. Problem is I didn't attempt a payment and have never received this kind of text before. Customers Beware, IMO.

    It must be a scam text. My att account is paid from my bank and I push the payment so I know there is money available

    Phone number texted all of our family’s cell phones with a fake false message regarding unsuccessful payment per our cell provider. Which was not true
