ATT Payment Unsuccessful Scam Text Message

Today, I received a text message from "AT&T" about an "unsuccessful payment" and to call telephone number 707-661-8029. The problem is I didn't attempt a payment and have never received this kind of text before. Customers beware.

It was silver and not red white and blue. AND IT WAS NOT REMOTE CONTROL.! am mortified. The packaging was beaten up like it was 20 years old. I have had it with these scammers...

        I do not think you were hacked. The scammers just your number sent the fake text to you, hoping you would call the fake phone number in the text. Once you call the number, they would attempt to steal your personal and financial info.

    It doesn’t matter which number it wants you to call. There is a hyper link hind inside that number. Do not click on it.

    I received the same message. Suspicious because I firmly believe AT&T (or any vendor) would have contacted me via my e-mail on file - not via a private message. I immediately went to my AT&T account and found my payments were up to date and I had 0 balance. Also if you first check the information about the message without opening it, you will find a convoluted origin thread-a dead giveaway.

    I just got the same message. I checked my at&t app and it says my payment posted yesterday and it was deducted from my bank account. This is definitely a scam. I would've known without checking but because I received this message around the date my payment usually posts, I checked to be sure. The message was sent from 1410200516.

    "FRM:AT&T:SUBJ:Unsuccessful payment. Call 7076618028. MSG:6797"

  • July 27, 2020 at 2:31 PM by an anonymous user from: Ventura, California, United States

    Total scam. I received this text from a phone number short one digit: 1 (410) 200-502

    AT&T's messages don't come that way, they come from a message code. Tip #1.

    Tip #2: no legit phone company is going to send you a text written like that. With FRM: and SUBJ: And then no space between ".Call" That's third-world grammar/writing. Tip #3: AT&T will never send you a linked phone number to call. Just like the bank won't. And the credit card company won't. They'll tell you to log into your account and check your status.

    The number to call on my text was 707-661-8028 btw. One digit off from some of the other texts.

  • July 27, 2020 at 2:11 PM by an anonymous user from: Carlsbad, California, United States

This is one of the times it would be good to post on Facebook. So many people trying to take advantage when everyone is going through so much right now already. Very sad. If people put as much time and effort into helping and caring for each other as they do in trying to steal and cheat we all would be so much better

    Got the same yesterday (26JUL2020), different phone number and message number. I did call it and it sure didn't sound like AT&T, recorded message that just wanted me to reactive my debt card. Hung up before doing anything. This was in line with any of my payment schedules with AT&T which did make me wonder immediately.

    Received the same text today (7/26). Figured it was a scan because I paid earlier this month and it was noted as withdrawn from my account. What bothers me is they seemed to know the regular payment date. Seems like they have hacked into AT&T accounts.

    I received this also 7/26/2020 South San Francisco. Number to call was 4422850125

    Yup, I just got the same scam text.

    Had already paid bill (successfully). Number to call on mine was 2192490573. The message came from 1(410)100-004, short one number.

    • July 26, 2020 at 8:33 PM by an anonymous user from: Canton, Georgia, United States

      Rec'd the same text message with 219.249.0573

  • July 26, 2020 at 6:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Clovis, California, United States

    I got this as well, got to be a scam. My ATT bill was already paid and I've never seen 770 for an ATT number. Plus I figure there'd at least be an email as well.

    I received the same text supposed from AT&T but the number to call was slightly different, 7706618028. Since I had already paid my phone bills earlier in the month, I knew this could not be right and must be a scam.

    • July 26, 2020 at 6:45 PM by an anonymous user from: White Lake, Michigan, United States

      received a txt for unsuccessful payment. I never have paid by my cellphone.

      it showed an area 410 code with a code.

      what is going on?

        It is a scam.
