4096839506 Scam Messages and Calls: Beware

If you have received text messages and calls asking you to call telephone number 4096839506, please do not. The messages and calls will say they are from AT&T and claim payment is on hold, but that is not true. So, instead of calling 409-683-9506, I called AT&T and they said they would never send a text with that information. They verified my payment, said I should not call the number because it is a scam.

    About the 4th call I've received from 410-200-5000 advising me to call 409-683-9506. Rather than that I went on-line to AT&T and found no problems, the bill had been paid recently. Then I called AT&T direct 8 AM Sunday, immediate answer. No problems with the actual AT&T. Finally, I logged on to onlinethreat and you confirmed this as a scam. Thanks. SIDE NOTE: If you called the number shown on your phone 'incoming' screen it might have taken you to another scam.

    I received this too. First clue it is spam is that it was July 4th, a National Holiday in the US. Second clue is that it says my payment is "on hold". What payment, I did not make a payment at all. And who is "holding' it - my bank, their bank? Third clue is, it asks me to call a number, one that is not toll free. All AT&T customers know that to call AT&T we dial 611 from our AT&T phone. In addition, AT&T and other major carriers have so many customers, they do not have the resources to single out one customer to contact about a billing problem. Instead, a warning message will appear on the online account website, saying your account is past due.
